Great hiking trails. Be sure to take plenty of water as it's a long hike and very hot during the summer months. Spectacular views.

The best thing to do is make it an easy hike- there is a kind of “rock garden” area on the plateau by the NCAR building. It’s flat and there are trees and lots of rocks to climb on for about 1/4 mile. Your toddler can have... More
