I took the kids up Piedmont (which was the best view all day), up Ambassador Whitehouse to the AT then down the North Ridge trail. It was a great hike and the kids really enjoyed it. We'd definitely go back.

This was a nice easy section to complete on the Appalachian Trail. It hit me that I was one day short of the psychological half way point on the AT Thru-Hike.
Very family friendly, wide open spaces and grand trees.
