In this Summit Session episode I'll speak with licenced Adirondack Guide, Allison Cascade Kozel, and we'll discuss all the tips and tricks she has learned over the years guiding families with kids out on the trail. Allison also started hiking in the Adirondack high peaks when she was just five years old and became an ADK 46'er a mere two weeks after her 13'th birthday; so she brings a unique perspective and experience level to this episode, having hiked both with kids and as a kid.
As a father who loves to hike with his two young daughters I can say hiking with them can be one of the greatest experiences possible and I hope this episode helps you get out on the trails with your own kids. It can feel like a daunting task, but start small and work your way up. If you're planning to hike with young kids for the first time you'll want to take notes because Allison shares incredible insight on how to have a successful hike with kids.
