Susan Elderkin is a wealth of knowledge in the topic of taking kids hiking!
Don’t set the expectations for your little hikers, let them decide their limits in order to let them enjoy hiking. Go camping and find small hikes nearby to make a whole experience out of it. These are just a few of the tips Susan talks about in our discussion.
Susan talks about wanting to put hikes in this book which were both in town and in the mountains. There is a good balance of both throughout.
This compilation of hikes is perfect and includes many hikes my family has done in getting our kids out hiking. With so many listeners constantly asking me about how to get kids out hiking, now there is a book to read!
