Great trail with some spectacular views throughout various parts (especially the beginning). Pretty easy and kid friendly with the exception of a couple more strenuous inclines, but they are few and far between. NOTE: Wear shoes that you don't mind getting dirty/dusty!
Great hike for kids and is perfect for beginning mountain bikers/family. Drive up to trailhead and go up high meadow spur trail. This has one loop that drops down by cold creek...take rt at first Y. Retrace steps back to Y and follow trail to road and hike back to trailhead.
