One set of trails leads to the top of Bradbury Mountain, which is really not much more than a hill but happens to be the highest point in the area. Elevation at summit is 480 feet, vertical climb is about 200 feet. The Northern Loop trail is very gradual, about a mile long, suitable for families with kids of any age. Rocky ledge at top affords a view of surrounding countryside to the coast near Freeport. Foliage season would be a good time to see it.
On the opposite side of the road are some loop trails through the woods, including a self-guided nature trail and some single-track mountain biking trails, which were getting more use than the hiking trails. This side also is used in the winter for cross-country skiing.
From Rte 293 at the Freeport exit, follow signs for Bradbury Mountain State Park. At the park entrance, the mountain trails are ont he right, biking trails are on the left.
