Mothers Day Hike with my wife and our 3 kids (9,8 and 4). Everyone enjoyed the hike. We also stayed right off the trail. Views from peak were tough with fog and rain but awesome day to be in the woods. Took less than 2 hours with 4 year old in tow.

This was a winter hike that I did and it was real pleasant. Nice views of the Great Range. The snow was hard and crunchy as we wore microspikes/hiking crampons. The trail became busy when we were heading down.
