Hikes listed as toddler-friendly are hikes that a toddler can walk on their own. For some hikes, only the first segment of the hike is toddler-friendly, but they are still included since many toddlers are not likely to hike more than 1 to 2 miles. Want to do a longer hike? Grab a carrier and let your little one hitch a ride when they get tired.

Please see the hike description for more information.I have also included other area hikes on the this with my assessment of their difficulty. My rating is generally higher (i.e. more difficult) than other guides as I am assuming you are hiking with kids or carrying a child.
