This trail was a great relaxing hike. the family and I only went to the falls since we started late. I have two 1 year old boys that I pushed in a double BOB stroller. Any jogger stroller will work great. We went the end of May so the bugs were not bad. I highly recommend this trail for anyone including family's with young children.
