I am coming in July with my ten year old son. On most vacations, I like to hike to the summit of a manageable mountain with him.
For example we have done North Mountain in Arizona, Yunque Peek in Puerto Rico, Cadillac Mountain in Maine. Nothing huge. Nothing that constitutes "climbing," just upward hiking. Pretty much just feel good things that give my son a sense of accomplishment. Hokey, yes!
We will be camping in Cades Cove and hoping someone could give me advice on an easily reachable summit with a ten year old. 8 miles seems to be his reasonable round trip limit.
Thank you in advance!
