"You’ll have no trouble keeping kids motivated along this hiking route. Three major “kid” features—two water slides and a mountain summit— will keep them racing along the trail to find out what’s next. At the Upper and Lower Bickford Slides, water streams down smooth rocks, collecting in pools that kids will find irresistible in warm weather. At the Blueberry Mountain summit, kids can munch on berries while the adults gaze at the view and try to name the distant peaks. A list of recommended items for the trip includes bathing suits or extra pairs of shoes for wading, long pants for protection through scratchy brush, containers for picking blueberries in season, bug repellent, and a camera to capture the picturesque water slides."

Very fun hike with the kids (2 & 4-yrs old). Definitely bring swim gear, there are some really nice pools at the bottom of the falls to wade and swim in.

The chutes at the beginning of the trail can be fun, however be careful to follow the trail appropiately at the stream crossing, the trail marking has faded and was difficult to pick up.
