We visited during this Thanksgiving week so Vikingsholm was closed. However, we decided to do the hike down to see the Bay up close and walk around the house. We hiked down with our 4 and 7 year olds with no problem. There was no snow so the trail was well paved and easy to walk. Kids loved stopping here and there to jump on branches and enjoy nature.
At the bottom, we had lunch on the pier and were treated to spotting a BALD EAGLE swooping and circling overhead numerous times! So cool.
A beautiful bay and relatively easy hike in our opinion. Hiking back up is a little steep but you can just walk slow and rest. There were no slippery rocks or narrow areas.
