Options: Trail 7 connects to Trail 9 not too far from the trailhead. This is the infamous never-ending hike I wasn’t sure I’d survive as a wee beginner. Trail 9 itself is nearly nine miles, and you’ll cover well over 10 miles if you loop Ogle and complete 7 as well. It’s a beautiful route, but make sure you’re prepared.
Best For: Fishing, picnics, water views, and moderate family hikes
Our Experience: We love water views, so Trail 7 is another top pick on our list. Slightly more strenuous than Trail 6, this will put the kids through their paces, but our 4-year-old still powered through without a problem.
