This was a pretty good hike for new and experienced outdoor goers. My kids are 10, 8, and 3 and they did fairly well. The three year old said it was amazing (as she rode on my back lol). This past weekend was in the mid to upper 70s and so it was super enjoyable without being too hot. Bugs were at a minimum. Only a few other hikers we passed so not too much traffic. My only complaint is we didn’t realize the hike ended at the overlook, meaning the kids couldn’t actually go to the base of the waterfall. We did that in Washington State where they could throw rocks and explore. So needless to say, they were a little disappointed. But overall, everyone had a good time. We did the blue and red trails and as a side note with the little ones, it took us a bit longer to finish (around 3 hours). Oh, and the trails were not super well groomed...one section had several fallen trees across that we had to climb over.
