Hike Summary: This hike starts at the South Parking Lot at the trailhead near the AWARE office. The route follows the Bradley Peak Trail for 0.6 miles to the top of Bradley Peak (954 feet) where there are outstanding views in all directions. From here it drops gradually and passes slabs and chunks of quarried rock - common in this area - to reach a saddle before climbing to the summit of Arabia Mountain (940 feet). Arabia is slightly lower in elevation than Bradley Peak and doesn't quite have the extensive views, but a private lake can be seen in the distance. Hike down to it then hug the shore line and eventually wind back to the Bradley Peak Trail which loops back to the South parking area and trailhead.
Road Conditions: Primary Paved Roads, Secondary Paved Roads
