Description

The Bradshaw Lookout Scenic Footpath is a quick and interesting way to descend to Melvin Beach. The trail starts high on the hill near the parkway and follows a stream valley down through a mixed forest. There are a few benches and staircases along the way with some interpretive signs about the surrounding vegetation. There are also a few places where there are cable railings to help in the steeper parts.

Stairs on the Bradshaw Lookout Scenic Footpath

This is probably one of the least hiked trails in the park because it doesn't have any major features except for a different way to access Melvin Beach. If you are planning to access Melvin Beach and wanted something a bit more challenging than the Multi Use Trail then consider using this trail.
