Bradbury Mountain State Park is nearly 600 acres of open space within a half-hour’s drive of Portland. Surrounded by a growing and increasingly fast-paced community, Bradbury provides a window into the region’s agrarian past. The mountain, once a stopping place for Native Americans traveling to the ocean, more recently was home to livestock, a vineyard, an inn, small mines, and a ski lift. Today the park is a popular destination for hiking and snowshoeing, as well as mountain biking and horseback riding. With a campground, picnic tables, a small playground, and easy-to-moderate terrain, Bradbury Mountain State Park is a perfect place to bring the whole family for a relaxing outing in the woods any time of year.
