Try not to find trails that wind. You will often see the same trail and can easily disoriented. Can't speak to much of the other trails but we will revisit bradbury mountian state park.

Leash your dogs!!!! This is a State Park and heavily used. There are signs everywhere! Leash your dogs or else you will be asked to leave. I use the park several times a week and take the paths less traveled. With out fail there is someone walking with unleashed dogs. It’s a great local spot to get a few miles in and fresh air. Well maintained. Don’t ruin what open trails we have left locally

Once we got off the trails with the snowmobiles (and gasoline stench) it was BEAUTIFUL! We had 4 kids with us ages 7-10 and they provided the typical level of complaint but the boundary loop was nothing that they couldn’t handle!

For Dec 25th, there was no snow, BUT, the hiking was awesome. Beautiful summit. Switchback Trail coming down from the summit actually has a yellow blaze. The park map said it had "none." Extremely well marked. Great for the dogs. Would be great for snowshoeing when it comes.

My 21 year old son and I did this mini hike the day before T-Day. Then went to LLBean and Bare Naked BBQ post hike. Awesome day. We’d done this hike many times but this was fun: sun plus chill, hiked the south trail clockwise towards loop then to summit. On the descent, we hiked the northern loop trail. Conditions wet wre due to all the rain so good boots recommended. Great hike for families young children and for bird watching. Lunch or snack at the summit key :)).

Grab a trail map at check-in. The trails are well-marked. On the East side I had big problems with island trail. Overgrown and not well marked. No bugs. Great temp.
