Challenging for young children, as the first 1/2 or so is rocky and moderately steep. But a fun and beautiful walk!
Very nice 1/2 day trip. About 1.5 hours up and 1 hour back at a relaxed pace. Back in the pouring rain; dark, wet, slick, but fun. Pond very peaceful and we saw one other couple on the trial. The guide is wrong about the distance from the 125/116 intersection. A little frustrating trying to find the road until we talked to a local to find the exact location. Guide should read about 4.1 miles from the intersection vice the 2.3.
The first third of the hike is really fun. There are huge boulders (size of school buses) that can be climbed. Further along, the trail crosses a stream and waterfall that's suitable for an excursion. The trail follows the stream upward and crosses back over. After that, it's basically a good cardio workout up the incline with the same views of the same trees. Abbey Pond is a somewhat stagnant pond that has some nice views but nothing to write home about.
