Attention nervous parents! We’ve found the perfect mountaintop for you! Haystack’s partially treed, conical summit rewards you with the great views you’ve earned after a 2-mile climb while giving the kids what they want for their efforts: a safe place to explore and roam, romp, and cavort. The climb is steady, but within the abilities of most kids, who will enjoy the walk through pretty forests and alongside babbling creeks. If you’ve been looking for a worry-free mountain to climb with your own “Dennis the Menace” or with a group of curious little tykes, read on!
