Ahh, the great outdoors. We’re talking mountains and forests and… trail mix! Hiking in a national or state park is an outdoor adventure the whole family can enjoy and it’s a wonderful way to get young kids interested in wildlife and the environment.
Whether you’re hiking a loop or a there-and-back-again trail, you’ll be happy you brought the necessary provisions to keep everyone energized. Of course, it’s also a good idea to bring a few small toys to occupy little hands, but chances are kiddos will be under the spell of the squeaks, creaks, and tweets – the music of the wild! Oh, and one last pro-tip: Everyone likes some candy in their trail mix.
B. sure to take a long rest at the tippy top of the trail and soak in the view. There’s nothing like seeing a valley decked out in fall foliage!
