Snowshoe the Northern Loop Trail at Bradbury Mountain

2 Miles Total - 407 ft gain - Out-and-Back Trail

Originally added by Danielle Tourigny

Bradbury Mountain provides great trails for snowshoeing within 30 minutes of Portland, and you can get rentals from nearby LL Bean if you need to!

Bradbury mountain has ample parking and multiple trails that lead around the mountain and up to the summit.  We took the Northern Loop, which is the longest trail up the small mountain. It is a gradual incline of 407 ft over 1.0 mile. It is a perfect out and back trail just to get outside for a bit and give the snowshoes some use. 

The trails at Bradbury State Park are well groomed and perfect for snowshoeing or cross country skiing. The view from the top is very pretty of the surrounding fields and rolling hills of Pownal. The state park requires a fee, but many times in the winter no one is there to collect it. If you don't own snowshoes, you can swing by nearby LL Bean to rent some. And when you are done for the day head over to Maine Beer Co for some delicious locally brewed craft beer!
