trails are mostly flat not very rocky but a few spots with decent incline. view at the top is ok... when you get to the trail end prepare for lots of mud and then a 20-30 min. walk back to the parking lot on a narrow and windy road. be careful.

Has a swampy smell close to the water but up on the mountain, it’s beautiful.

Really nice, clear and clean trails. I took the last left before the road onto an unblazed trail that puts you on the green. That makes it 2.9 miles but then you avoid the road walking. A popular mountain biking spot too!

Great hike at Crescent Lake. Many trails to choose from along the way. The path leading to Ledge Rd was extremely muddy towards the end. The last .7 is hiking on the busy road so be careful if bringing younger kids or animals. Looking forward to coming back in the fall.

Great trail, many options to explore. I would advise avoiding the road. Very muddy to get from trail to road and is very narrow and windy.

Great hike. A mix of flatland and rocky scramble. Nice views throughout. A hidden gem for sure. I can't wait to come back with my son.

This trail was amazing. We took some of our own routes back (green and Orange blazes as well as unblazed shortcuts) to avoid walking on the road. The Bradley Mountain and Quarry views are amazing and unparalleled. On a chilly mid March day, we didn’t encounter any bugs and only a tiny bit of mud near the lake. Some of the blazes have changed since the creation of this map, you end up following blue/orange and blue/red for most of this trail, but the gps on here and the very clear set up on the trail help. Overall, gorgeous views and highly recommend.
