How to get your kids to love hiking...

I am a mom to 2 kids who love to hike. It has been a process but worth it. I want them to come with me and love it as much as I do. we did our first backpacking trip last summer and they loved it. I have lots of people ask... how? First of all why? Why take them? If you love it you want them to as well so they don't get left behind. Also I am a big believer in teaching resilience. Kids don't get to do much that pushes them, that feels hard. We have easy sedentary lives. I believe we can teach grit and resilience. Hiking does just that- there might be hard parts. It might get cold or rain.... and they will make it, learning that hard is worth it! Here is some of my tips, tricks and easy hike

Hiking review- when your worried you won’t keep up.

Lucinda is a great guide! She picked the perfect hike for my abilities. Before we went I was worried that I might not be able to keep up, but Lucinda went at a pace that was comfortable for me. Lucinda was prepared all around - she picked the hike, did the driving, and brought everything we needed. The only thing I had to think about was my lunch and water. If you're looking to try new hikes and need someone experienced to show you the way, Lucinda is the guide to call!
