My sister took us on this hike on Thanksgiving morning. Most of it is very flat along the Channel Trail but has a slight climb up the saddle between the peaks. There is a small trail that leads up the northern peak for those looking for a view. We hiked it all at my 4 yr old's pace and it took about 1.5 hours. We could see lots of mountain bikers in the park but we only crossed paths with a few of them.
