This post tags along with my last post "Taking Kids Hiking":
I love being outside and lucky enough for me my kids are enjoying the same affinity for natural beauty. I chose to hit Goll Woods for a quick hike late in the fall on a warm November day. This a great time to beat the heat and the mosquitos and get a little more out of the little ones on the trail.

I have two young sons (5 and 3) and they love the outdoors. They can be outside tearing each other to shreds in the backyard or scoping for antler sheds in the cold early spring and be perfectly content. There were a few learning bumps I had to endure along the way to transitioning my little ones to traversing the hike.
Those bumps were well worth introducing my passion to my kids.
Many kids don't get any real outdoor exposure at all. Taking the first steps to show them how wonderful the adventure of the hike is can be a critical learning point in their lives... and if you're at this page then you know you want to take the next steps with them. Here's what I've learned and what you may benefit from:
