My sister and I took the kids hiking to Denny Creek before school started. Beautiful place, worth the what felt like 2-3 miles each way hike to the waterfall and natural water slides. Bringing a 1 1/2 year old without a carrier = tired adults and a lot of stops. I would love to go back without a baby and plenty of snacks and a picnic lunch. One thing we did do right was bring lots of water.
Check out the hike if you haven’t just remember; bring lots of water, food, water shoes, the water is freezing, slippery and deep in some parts, bring a carrier if you plan on taking babies or toddlers who aren’t used to a walk that long. But it is such a beautiful place and like I said worth the hike.
