Here is a glorious place to take children for 3 days or a week. You’ll find streams to wade in, a lake to swim in, loop trips, and viewpoints—all on a plateau where the subalpine forest is richly filled with alpine meadows. The area is seldom used by hikers because it is open to motorcyclists. But midweek, wheels are scarce. Then a family can have miles of wild area to itself. Even on weekends, machine riders go home by nightfall. There are countless campsites to choose from; pick the one that suits your pleasure and your speed.
