    Fun and pretty hike, but I would classify it as strenuous for younger kids. We hiked this with our 2- and 4- yr olds (brought our kelty child carrier for when our youngest got tired), and both kids amazed us with how they scaled the mountain. The beginning of the hike was pretty easy with a gradual ascent, but once we got onto the mountain trail it became a lot more strenuous for our little ones. Near the summit are some rocky areas that required a good bit of balance and strength. Younger kids could probably get to the first overlook (before ascending to the fire tower) without too much trouble. We did the whole thing, but it was challenging. Needless to say, once we got our campsite our kids actually asked for bedtime. Overall, a great hike.
