Roaring Run Hike

With Tim out of town, I was determined to get out and do something besides the pool darn it! Luckily, we live in the middle of so many beautiful hiking trails that it wasn't hard to. I heard that Roaring Run was a nice, family friendly hike (though there is a harder one available) and that there were some natural water slides. Jerry and Melanie, who had been there in the past, confirmed it was a good plan and we set off first thing in the morning.

It was a lovely hike, gentle and following a stream.

It ended at a small waterfall. But you know what the kids wanted to do.

Water slides! There were varying degrees of bravery, but in the end, all the kids went down several times. There was some complaining of bumped buns, but they all agreed it was a blast, if a bit cold.

The second biggest hit was rock throwing, which might have continued indefinitely had it not been for the need for lunch.

My children were completely underwhelmed with the 1840's iron forge, but I guess you can't win them all. 

Round trip was about 2 hours with ample play time. A+ family day and highly recommended!
