Epitomizing south-western PA hills, Brady's Run Park offers plenty of lung-busting climbs and adrenaline-pumping descents. Difficulty ranges from super-technical to flowing contour lines. The trails can be confusing in spots, but the map helps a lot. The trails in Brady's Run are typically run clockwise, but traffic is generally light enough to ride it however you want. It is open to walkers and riders (and horses, but they're rare), so please be considerate.

Very hard to follow correct trail. Poorly marked route. But great hiking otherwise.

Great trail, a variety of terrain to give you good exercise and keep it interesting. We walked 4hr 15 min but stopped and backtracked a few times. We had a hard time finding where to get on the trail, but we asked someone and they gave us direction, since we lost service on our phones. Once we started, we soon ended up off the trail, but at a higher elevation, so we then used the map provided on this site to guide us along the trail. I have to say we would have been lost without it, and even with it it was a challenge, due to the many trails throughout. Regardless, its a great hike and fun if you enjoy the challenge (and lots of jumps for mountain bikers), just make sure you have gps on or at least download a map. The entire time we saw only 3 mountain bikers and 2 or 3 hikers. Will be back when the leaves have fallen to enjoy the view of the lake.

Very challenging yet satisfying. Completed 6 miles at 45-floors elevation. Beautiful place, will return.

poorly blazed trails is an understatement.. you have markers for about 3/4 of a mile then your on your own, with trail split offs about every 15 minutes makes things extremely difficult and you feel lost most of the time.. all in all will definitely not be going back.

We did the whole loop in 3 hours. Count a half hour of that for lost time! And we were using GPS. The trail was ok and I'd rate it as somewhere between moderate and hard. This is probably the poorest blazed trail I've ever hiked and I see why people get lost. We won't go back

We hike Brady's run quite often and always enjoy it. There are several trails to choose from and they are all very well maintained.

Brady's Run is the park I grew up in. The trails are great for trail runs and feel deeper than they are.

It was a beautiful trail but there were some many splits and Y's in the trail, with no markings of where to go, we got so lost only a half hour in

This trail was fairly easy for us. It is very nicely groomed of debris making the hike/walk pleasant. You can make it shorter or longer by taking different routes. We went about 3.5 miles.

This park is great for building endurance and climbing, as well as some technical skills (log crossing, hairpin turns, short steep climbs). I didn't like it until moving made it the nearest option -- now, I love it. Getting to know it is important. If you're coming for a visit, stop by Snitger's Bicycle Store in Beaver for maps and directions -- it can be a little confusing out on your own.
