Trail Recommendations

There is no doubt that you know your child best when it comes to their interests and hiking ability. This is why each trail report includes a ‘low down’ section where you can see the number of trails available, distances, elevation gains, and features – so that you can make the right choice for your family to enjoy the outdoors. Click on the trail name for the trail report (if available). Below are my favourite trails for families and kids by city/county/region.
