“The gateway to the southern section of trails, Bradema is a short and fun singletrack.
— Kevin Ketchman
Being the best source of trails in the city, the entire Frick Park trail system gets used by hikers and bikers. There is plenty of trail to go around though.
Accessed from Tranquil Trail
in the valley, or off of South Clayton Trail. Entering from the valley, this trail starts with a quick switchback before leading to gentle rolling, yet a steady climb to South Clayton.
Runners can use this trail to access southern sections of the park, which offer more singletrack.
Bradema Trail is a beautiful, serene and solitary hiking/MTB/trail-running singletrack trail. Some small tree roots, rocks, and a horseshoe curve make this trail a fun frolic through the woods. Although you are not far from the major trails in Frick Park, you won't see them (until you cross the Biddle Trail
)-- and it's just you and the woods.
