Our kids (4 & 7) are great hikers and loved this. It was a great length for kids with almost no down time between beautiful lakes and interesting terrain.

this whole area is so beautiful, no shortage of lakes, views, wildflowers, trails, etc. We have hiked from Long lake trailhead up to the Pacific Crest and down to Round lake and Silver lake as well, making about a 9 mile. there is an amazing view of the Sierra Buttes on the PCT walking in southern direction, don't just stop at the first beautiful overlook,, there are so many.

Very nice trek! Beautiful scenery. Quite a few other people, but not too bad.
