Guest Blogger Kid Hike Series – Bradbury Mountain State Park

We have partnered with some great brands from around North America to bring you some outdoor adventure locations that you can enjoy with your children.  Today we are featuring a location in Maine from Karen G of Swimlids.

Roo Rain Gear hike location Bradbury Moutain State Park, RPET

Location: Bradbury Mountain State Park, Maine (Portland Area)

Getting There: Situated on Route 9 about halfway between Portland and Lewiston-Auburn

Best Time of Year to Visit: Sept/Oct for the foliage.  Mid March – Mid May for the Annual Hawk Watch.

What To Bring: camera, good shoes, and lots of different clothing layers. You never know what the weather is going to be like in Maine.

Points of Interest: Summit Trail which is west of Route 9.  This trail is the quickest way up to the top of Bradbury Mountain, which is where the annual Hawk Watch takes place.

About our Hike/Walk:  My daughter and I hiked up Bradbury Mountain a few weeks ago.  It was raining slightly so we decided to wear our Roo Rain Gear ponchos to keep us dry.  Once we got to the summit we enjoyed the beautiful view.  There are two routes to the top. One is a quick steep hike, or there is a longer gradual hike to the top if you are hiking with younger ones.
