From Beaver, head north on 51/Constitution Blvd. After three miles, take the exit right. Park on the left or right, or head all the way through the park and stop at the kids' playground.
I've yet to ride Brady's Run. What I've read, confuses me more. Some say, the trails are manicured, and maintained. Others say there is no organization, and you will get lost. Trail head entrances are equally as clear. Are they really there? Drove by in the winter, didn't see anything. Help?!Thank |
This is one I have difficulty rating for two reasons: it's my local trail, and I ride it a lot, so I have a blast on it; but, the south side of the park is Minotaur's Maze, and there are no trail markers anywhere. One particular junction is aptly named Grand Central Station: 5 trails intersect, and there's no indication where you'll end up by taking any of them. Beyond that, the system is aerobically challenging as it sits across two hills, so just about any route over 5 miles is going to net you 1,000 to 1,500' of climbing; and there are some interesting technical spots as well, enough to make you think about what you're doing. In recent years, maintenance has improved dramatically and a few intelligent re-routes were put in place. As a local, you should get to know this trail system; as a visitor, ride with a map for directions and a friend for safety. This would be a solid four stars if it were more visitor-friendly.Thank |
