I wish you were closer to Berg Lake. I always suggest this as thee best, family friendly hike out there. Lots of stops. Safe. Beautiful in and out. I took my kids when they were 10 and 7 and even did snowbird pass. Not entirely safe, and not for new hikers, but we were extra precautions and did it without incident. Did it another time with other moms and kids and they all want to go back. Put it on the agenda!
