Great trail, moderate, inclined and hilly the view is gorgeous once you reach the shelter, pretty much shaded, parking after 10am is a problem so plan ahead.

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.
