Inscription. Brady's Bluff was designated a State Natural Area in 1952 to preserve the high quality ecological systems found here. This uncultivated 65 acre remnant is characterized by steep, dry prairies, exposed cliffs, and oak woodland. The bluff, a favorite hiking destination, was named for Bridget and John Brady, Jr. whose pioneer family settled here in 1860 and held the property until it became part of Perrot State Park in 1918.
