My wife and I took our 3 kids and our dog up this trail today and then came back down on Teaberry Rock Trail. The uphill portion of Alligator Rock got a little challenging for our littlest one (5yo) but he didn't complain. The fallen leaves add a challenge to judging your steps, so just be careful.

Nice trail if you want to challenge yourself. Plenty of rocks to sit on. :)

Hiked at a slow pace with others. Entire trip took about 1 hour at a leisurely pace. A few steep sections but not to bad.
