|NATIONAL PARKS QUICKLINKS|
This is a nice beginner hike I use each year to introduce kids to camping, hiking, and eventually backpacking. The campsites are also close to a road so vehicles and some gear doesn't need to be carried if a child doesn't feel up to it. We usually hike about 3 miles on Thursday afternoon and then another 3 miles on Friday. The views are spectacular and you stay near the river most of the way.
