Hey everyone, planning early for a trip out west next summer and would like to do some hikes with the kids (1 and 3). Just wondering if there's anything of note on the trails mentioned in the topic with regards to hiking with a child in a backpack carrier? Are these all relatively straightforward trails?
Stuff like creek crossings, scree slopes, anywhere that requires hand holds, etc.. last time we came out west we did a few hikes with the first child: bow hut, conrad kain hut, iceline trail, lake agnes/beehives/plain of six glaciers, and sentinel pass. The only one I wouldn't do again with a child on my back is bow hut, the big boulder crossing was ok, but the creeks were not fun.
Also what's the bear situation at a place like Rawson Lake? And would it be an alright place to hang out for an hour and a half? Was thinking we could all hike up to the Lake and then I could quickly scramble the ridge while the family hangs out at the lake.
Any advice would be great, thanks!
PS. In case anyone mentions the physical challenge of hauling two kids around, it's ok we do this a lot, just looking for trail beta
