Hiked this trail with my husband, 3 year old, and 16 month old. It was perfect for us. The beginning (inner loop) was easy so baby could toddle and wear him self out. My husband carried baby in a pack through the harder back half. We got our exercise in the back half with hillier terrain. 3 year old made it through the whole hike with just a few minutes of piggy back riding. Bridges, hills, fallen trees, slugs, mushrooms, and toads gave the trail lots of interest. Shaded the whole way through. Bathrooms with running water right at trail head. Great family hike.

I've hiked this trail numerous times. If the trail, Miami Shaker Trace, is considered moderate, then this trail must also be considered moderate. Of the four trails shown in Miami Whitewater Forest park, the Miami Shaker Trace trail is the easiest. Don't forget the Miami Shaker Trace is paved.

Great family hike. Kids managed well but we're happy to see the steps leading to the road.
**This is listed as "easy" but I would say it is more moderate.

Well maintained with open forest views. Mostly easy with a few strenuous hills. There is a cut through midway if you want a shorter hike.

Located in Miami Whitewater state park. There are other trails in the park but Badlands is my favorite. Trail is very well maintained.. would rate difficulty as easy. Great place to hike!

Nice trail through forest. You can hike the short loop or a longer loop. Both is nice. If you are an avid hiker, nice easy trail, if you are just getting started, this has some easy elevation changes to for a beginner.
