“A gentle, family-friendly trail with many turn around options that still include great views.”— Heather Fernweh
There is lots of educational material at the boardwalks for kids and adults alike. The trail is mostly uncovered, making a hat and water necessary as the sun is really hot here. The trail starts at a large parking lot that fills up by noon so come early. It's a little over 3 miles but can be extended if you add Crumbaugh Lake Trail or Mill Creek Falls Trail. Either way, this is a great unique, quick trail with or without kids.
