Bradbury Mountain State Park

Bradbury Mountain is proudly open all-year, from 9am till sunset (unless otherwise posted).This is a wonderful place to spend a day or afternoon exploring trails, taking in the magnificent view from the summit, or enjoying a picnic under a canopy of trees. One of the original five state parks, Bradbury Mountain was acquired by the Federal government in 1939.

Cliff Trail

This is a rugged trail that includes a shore walk along tidal Strawberry Creek and spectacular views from 150-foot cliffs overlooking Long Reach. Unbroken preserved forest stretches to the east and south of Long Reach. The reach itself is a submerged valley that is now tidal mudflats. Across the Reach is the 90-acre Long Reach Preserve.

Swinging Bridge

This pedestrian suspension bridge is over 330 feet long and very narrow. Though the bridge has been repaired a few times over the years, and many parts have been replaced, the cables are original to the 19th-century structure. The bridge was built by John A Roebling’s Sons Company, the same firm that constructed the Brooklyn Bridge. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2004.
