Really easy hike. Takes about 7 minutes to the top if you go the direct route. Kids, families and dogs enjoy the views from the big granite ledge on top. Fall is a great time of year to view foliage.

Hiked to the top of this mountain with our kids. Summit trail is only .3 miles and not difficult. We then took the longer North Loop Trail on the way down. The North Loop Trail is about 1 mile and is very easy. This is a great place for families! Also the view from the top is great. Highly recommend.

Miles of trails are available for Mountain biking. Park trails on the west side of Rt 9 can be crowded with hikers but when you cross over to the east side it becomes very easy to put 8 to 10 miles or more of riding in and only see a few people if you’re there early enough. They may get a little more populated as the day goes on but it is still very easy to get several miles of riding in. Trails on the East side of Rt 9 are far more entertaining with some challenging bridges and terrain but the west side is still always a fun ride to the summit to get your cardio workout in. .

I love Bradbury Mtn if you need to just be in a lil nature - it's super close to Portland. this specific trail is very winding and easy: great for older dogs and kiddos. view at the top is just of stretches of trees, so don't expect any wild views. however there is a beautiful rock cliff off to the left side to sun nap on!

Bradbury Mountain is perfect for families with young children. The .2 mile summit trail is the most direct way to the top, so it is fairly steep in places. However it was still very manageable for my 7 year-old son.

There are a beautiful network of trails throughout the park and they are all well marked. If you’re lucky, you may cross paths with a whitetail deer.

Trails were clearly marked (easy to follow), would say a very beginner friendly trail. $4/adult to enter park (pay at the gate). Dog friendly (must be on a leash), heavily trafficked. We went in mid April and there was still some spots that had snow, other parts were very wet! We stayed to the trails on the parking lot side (there are bathrooms), there's more trails across the street by the campground.

Took northern loop trail to the top of the mountain with NA, AB, and AA. Great views. A hawk watcher was there and we saw a bald eagle.

Easy, pleasant, wooded, better views than one deserves for so little effort. Perfect for days when you just have to get out and hike, but you’ve got plans later. We followed the outskirts, Border Trail. Probably the best view for the easiest climb that I can think of, except maybe for Monument Hill in Leeds, Maine.

Great hike! Three in party... four year old, adult, and senior. Took Northern Loop with Ski Area short cut both up and down. Very nice hike; all trails "as advertised" in trail map. Had to remind my son to mind his footing on the roots... only ate the dirt once... and it was his own fault. Highly recommended for all ages!

Quiet clean trails with some great views. Most trails are easy enough for most people, there area few more challenging trails as well. overall beautiful place.

Very short hike.
Several signs were missing, labeling trails heading back down the mountain.
It was very foggy, so the views from the top were not great.

Although this area does get pretty crowded and the hike itself is short, I like that there are a few different trail options to make the trek a bit more exciting. This place is great for kids with plenty to do, as there is a playground at the base and quite a few picnic tables. And regardless of how easy the hike up the mountain is, the view at the top is still one of the best.

Great views, very easy hike, trails could be more clearly marked.

Easy trail and not that exciting, but I was there during Fall so the colors were great! I would give it 3 stars if I had gone any other time, but Fall.

Easy trail for families and even trail runners. Does get quite crowded. Nice views at the top. Summer bonus: strawberry picking at Bradbury Berry Farm (near the base of the mountain)

Good for small children.
