Take Kids Hiking - Tips To Make It Fun

Hiking with kids is a great way to get them connected to the outdoors at a young age, but it can also be intimidating for the parent planner. Following are ten tips to make that hike go smoothly and keep mom and dad on the kids’ good side.

Keep it easy and feature-friendly. For at least the first few times, select a hike that isn’t too long or too strenuous – remember that for kids, the hike is about the experience. Picking a trail that has some features – be it a lake, stream, waterfall or something else will keep kids occupied and give them a goal to reach.

And remember, it’s about the journey not the destination. If your child is more interested in getting down on his or her hands and knees to explore the undergrowth, then that is the experience for the day – there will always be a next time. Read 9 More Tips.
