This is a great trail for a county park! the upper loop trail is hard and climbs a very steep hill right off the bat. Great park!

I live near this place. The park is one of my favorite places to go. It is rated as hard but there is a lot more to the park than just the black diamond trails. The trails are well maintained and they are getting easier to navigate. The rule to follow is stay on the widest trails and you will find the shortest route. Pick up a park map at the Ice Arena and you will be able to navigate a majority of the park. If you really want to get a picture of the scope of the trails in the park I uploaded a map I compiled over 10 years of data collecting. It is the most accurate map to date, if I can toot my own horn. on it you will find a looping system of trails. the system is made up of 3 major loops that combine, that is the confusing part for a lot of hikers. THE NORTH SIDE.. THE SOUTH SIDE... and THE WILDWOOD LOOP.... The northside of the park has a majority of the Down Hill Mt. BIke Trails that branch off the main trail the main trail of the north side runs from the beginning of the park and goes up a steep climb to the BALL FIELDS there is road access to the ball fields too. From the ball fields the trail crosses a valley and extends past the Ed Calland Arboretum. It also has road access and a paved loop to visit the Local fona our region has to offer. then from the arboretum it is down hill to the end of the park. you can then choose to stay low in the park recreation area or go back up in the south side. THE SOUTH SIDE TRAIL also extends the whole way from back to front. From the back if the park behind the 4 Season Shelter is the FIRE ROAD it is a semi paved and gravel trail that gives access to the south side hill for emergency and maintainc as well as maple syrup harvest in the spring. 2 miles and you are back at the front of the park there is also a nice bird watching shelter halfway down the trail and a stop at the MAPLE SYRUP CAMP. On the other hand if you choose to go up the trail on the south side from the back of the park the initial climb is steep locals call it stairway to heaven, mostly on account of the climb but I like to think during certain times of year in the afternoon the sun shines down the climb it is totally worth it. any how it the top of the hill is a farm that is private so stay on the trail for a bit. contineue to follow the trail and any wrong turn will ultimately bring you back to the mail trail. There is a couple of connecting trails to the FIRE ROAD along the way. at the end or the beginning of the southside is a parking spot for locals come to the park threw "not a public entrance". there you either choose to go down to the ICE AND HORSE ARENAS or you can choode to get lost on the WILD WOOD TRAIL LOOP. if it is your first time to the park take a guide or avoid the wild wood loop altogether. This part of the trail is hard to navigate mostly because over the years mountain bike races where held here and in order to make a 2.4 mile long park have over 14 miles of single track compromised where made and this System is a looping knotwork that only locals can navigate with confidence. I hope this helps with getting around My favorite place on earth.

I love these trails, but all of the reviewers are correct that it is poorly marked. that being said if you're willing to invest a few weeks or months learning the trail system it is fantastic. If your an early morning weekday runner you may never see another runner hiker or mountain biker. I am lucky to have been able to trail run all over the country and this is by far one of my favorite places that I've ever run. Remember this isn't Colorado you're never truly lost but you may be late for work. So suck it up get lost and find your way back you'll be glad you did.

Great and challenging trail. I just wished it was marked better.

If your mountain biking it’s tough. If your hiking it can be challenging. I do mostly the sugar shack/lake side of the park. I do it after work and walk /run 4-6 miles and do between 78-118 floors according to the Fitbit. Multi use trail is marked with white square blazes and green arrows.2.5 miles. Other trails are a little more confusing For people i guess. Wooden signs at some intersections like stump junction can go unnoticed if your not looking for them they are higher up the tree trunk Than the blazes.
I don’t do the arboretum side. I don’t know how well it’s marked.

as a new hiker it was hard to keep to the trail. I keep trying to do the loop but always end up turning back.

I will definitely do this again but I can tell why almost every review says you'll get lost. It is maybe one of the worst blazed trail I have ever been and is the worst around the baseball fields. But I loved the hike and the challenging hills. When the elevation says it's going to go up just be ready to climb.

Fun hike but trail not marked well, so when your hiking keep your eyes out the trail markers or you’ll get on the wrong trail fast.

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.

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.
