Exploring Local Trails

Exploring Local Trails

Summer is the perfect time to get outside and explore the great outdoors with your little ones. Camp Counselor Mary is closing out Adventure Time this week with why exploring local trails is not only a great way to spend time together, but also provides numerous benefits for both you and your children.

Who doesn't love exploring local trails in the summertime? We're extremely lucky to have so many trail and hiking options nearby living in Montana, but did you know you can use the AllTrails app to find all your own local trails no matter where you are? You can search by difficulty and length as well!

What are the benefits of exploring local trails with little ones?

Exploring local trails with your little ones can have a positive impact on their physical and mental well-being. It allows them to connect with nature, get some exercise, and learn about the environment around them. It also provides a great opportunity for bonding and creating lasting memories together.

How can you make the most of your nature hike?

All you need are supportive shoes, some sunscreen and of course a wide brimmed sunbonnet to enjoy the outdoors. Our Briar Sunbonnet keeps our baby shaded but stylish - plus we always get so many comments on how cute she is while we're out hiking!

What are some fun activities to do on the trail?

Make the most of your nature hike by incorporating fun activities along the way. Play nature scavenger hunt, have a picnic, or bring along a nature guidebook to identify plants and animals. Encourage your little ones to use their imagination and creativity as they explore the trail.

One more tip for exploring nature trails with kids is to save all the "treasures" your children give you along the way in a little mason jar to keep and remember your fun times outside.

How can you ensure a safe and enjoyable experience?

Safety is always a top priority when exploring local trails with little ones. Make sure to stay on designated paths, watch out for wildlife, and be mindful of any potential hazards. Keep a close eye on your children at all times and teach them about the importance of respecting nature and leaving no trace.

So grab your hiking shoes, pack a sunbonnet, and get ready to create some unforgettable memories in the great outdoors this summer! Happy Trails!
