This spring break has been glorious- 20 degree weather filled with bike rides and hikes... I'm loving it. Mostly. The kids are relearning how to get along 24/7, but that's part and parcel of childhood, right?
Well, I get lots of questions of where to take your kids hiking so today's post will feature a popular, child (and dog) friendly hike close-ish to home.
The locals are all pretty familiar with the Heart Creek trail. It is a short, easy (and I mean easy for everyone, not just for me) hike following a small creek. The total distance is just under three kilometers, so it can make a nice stop on the way home from a longer mountain excursion.
The trail was drastically changed in the flood of 2013. It's fun to see how powerful water can be.
All in all, a great, short hike for kids... And a pleasant diversion in the middle of spring break. Make sure you follow up with a stop at mackay's ice cream in Cochrane.
Sarah and Cory have a passion for hiking and being out in nature. There is no feeling quite the same as standing on the top of a mountain, sitting by a hidden lake, the jelly legs at the bottom of a steep descent, the sun on your face or the wind in your hair. Even our children have come to love it!
