Safety and supervision: we choose hikes that are not dangerous, and we’ll warn you about any parts of the hike that require extra attention. You’re responsible for watching your children. We’ll let you know where’s good to play.
Vehicle: all participants must wear seatbelts while in the vehicle. Ask us about bringing your car seat, as certain seats might not fit.
Weather: if the weather doesn’t look like fun, we’ll cancel or postpone the hike. We cross a small stream several times. The crossings are somewhat slippery. If rain has made the stream too high to cross, we’ll do an up-and-back hike from the park area.
Food: bring your own picnic lunch. We’ll supply some snacks and water for you.
Suitable for kids aged 5 and up. Younger children would need to be carried for most of the time. Not suitable for people who want to walk fast.
