We took our 3 yr old, almost 2 year old twins, and 70 year old mother with a tender knee, and we loved this hike! The 3 yr old was able to walk the entire loop by himself even though the initial ascent was a bit steep. The 2 year olds walked most of the way except for the steeper bits. Mom made it through just fine as well! We saw Hairy Woodpeckers and heard a Pileated Woodpecker nearby. The creek was bone dry (8/6/17), but it was still really neat to walk along and see the rocks in the creek bed. Would love to do this again when the creek is in full force!
