A great easy hike! We took about 3 hours doing the entire loop- took a lot of time on Undercliff taking pics. Our dogs also loved the hike (which is actually a flat walk.) We saw a couple families so kids can definitely handle the hike, although the entire 5 mile loop might be a bit long- we were pretty worn out by the end! It cost $12 per person to go in btw.

Absolutely beautiful, and fun ride! It was fun watching people rock climb. Also it is a nice ride if it's super hot and sunny since its shaded for the most part. Everyone we ran into, whether hiking, climbing, biking etc seemed to be enjoying themselves.
