This trail has been a staple in my family for more than 40 years. The yummiest way to treat the kids for their work and adventuring attitudes has always been "backpack" homemade icecream that they made in their backpacks, without any extra effort and enjoying the fruits of their hardwork at the top near the waterfall. We have always packed a small lunch as well just for extra incentive for the littles. the backpack icecream is amazing by the way. look up on google to check it out! 30 years later and our kids still remember the special treats THEY made themselves just by hiking and their backpacks naturally shaking the cream and ice. The hike itself is easy to moderate and generally takes no longer than a couple of hours. plenty of places to take a breather and fresh water to drench a bandana to cool yourself off if you get heated. Don't forget to bring your water though!
