Bradbury Mountain State Park, Maine

My visit to Bradbury Mountain was kind of by default since I was already right there, having visited Wolfe’s Neck the day before. The park’s multiple trails and promises of a good view from the top of the mountain intrigued me. Unfortunately, this park – while offering a perfectly pleasant morning of hiking – was fairly nondescript and not really worth more than a couple hours. But it served it’s purpose.

I started with the Summit Trail, climbing the fairly steep but very short path to the top before pausing and then returning down a longer route that led around the boundary of the park. It was aptly named the Boundary Trail. The views from the top were blandly nice as was the walk around the perimeter of the park; the coolest feature of the day were all the mushrooms.
