My husband, 8 yr old and 13 yr old along with myself took this hike Sunday morning. Pretty easy path to follow until you get to the bridges. Two of the main bridges that lead to the "caves" are out so we had to find another way to cross the river. If you don't mind getting a little wet plenty of places to do that (lots of places that are only ankle high deep in water). LOTS of litter though. Easy hike for smaller kids though we got off the beaten path and a few high slippery trails to cross my 8 yr old did great.
