Kids, as well as parents, love this short hike since it’s just long enough to tire out young legs without being too tiring—you can set aside your worries about having to tote your tot back to the trailhead. Kids appreciate the views and absolutely love the pikas and marmots that pop out of crevices in the rocky slope bisected by the trail. Of course, kids young and old have fun wading in the cold waters of Sunrise Lake, watching the mudskippers and tadpoles thrashing in the shallows.
