Great hike today! Left the hiking trail for the ski trails on the back side. I saw nobody while the full parking lot was hiking the front-side trail to Brady Bluff.

Amazing trail! Well-labeled throughout the entire park. The Western path up to Brady's Bluff seems to be what most people take up. It has a lot of wooden and stone stairs. I took the Northern path, which was a lot of fun and felt more like a gentle incline. The vista at the very top of both Brady's Bluff and Perrot Ridge are absolutely stunning! For an added bonus, the cross-country ski trails are a nice jaunt as well. They are mostly rolling hills although a few of them can get kind of steep.
Like others have said, bring your mosquito repellent. The area is very shaded, and they can get nasty. The hiking only trails are sand +/- rocks. These areas, particularly anywhere that is steep can get very muddy and be very slick in the morning or after it has rained. Be careful. The cross-country ski trails are for the most part grassy and weeded. Almost all of the trail though is shaded which is very nice.

Great hike. Combined Perrot's Bluff and Brady's Bluff into one hike. Both have 400' plus accents and descents. Spectacular views atop both off the bluffs.

Great views of the surround areas. I went canoeing, hiking, and water sampling in the same day for an AP Environmental Science class that I was helping student teach. It was a lot to do in one day, but it's a nice place to go with lots of open space for large groups.

While on a biking/camping trip at Perrot State Park, we decided to explore the hiking trails...Glad we did, amazing views from the top of the bluff, the scenery throughout the trail are beautiful as well.

Really cool stone stairways that take you up the bluff to amazing views and beautiful goat prairies.

Challenging and rewarding! Wonderful views of the Mississippi and surrounding bluffs of WI & MN. This is one of my favorites in the LAX area.
