Hike a relatively easy 2–3km up ‘Goat Canyon’ to find a perfect outdoor play area: pools of clear water, large boulders, grassy areas, and a choice of sunny or shaded spots to set up for a picnic.
Kids club: relaxed outings for kids to enjoy some family time in nature. Best for ages 5–12. Younger children would need to be carried for most of the way on this hike.

Things to do
While there aren't specially structured activities this time, there are some fun things to do besides enjoying the views.
Paddle in the pools: There are several pools of water near the picnic area, and they're good for paddling. The water in the pools is cool and clear, and locals often hike up to fill up on drinking water.
Go looking for goats: Local shepherds often graze their goats in the canyon. Sometimes we find them on the way to the pools, sometimes a bit further up the valley.
Hike farther up the canyon: A trail continues up through a boulder-filled turn in the canyon (best for older kids who want more exercise).
