Bradley Palmer State Park contains an extensive trail network winding through 721 acres of open fields and mature woodlands and follows the banks of the Ipswich River. The Bay Circuit Trail and the Discover Hamilton Trail wind through the park. Bradley Palmer links to Willowdale State Forest to the north and nearly connects to the Pingree Reservation to the south.
