Kids can definitely handle this trail's gentle grades and short length.
Resist the temptation to take cut-through or non-marked "hack trails"....most cases of people getting confused or lost is because they took a "hack trail" or cut-through that was not marked with a trailhead sign.
Be careful on the upper canyon sections as there are some hazardous drop-offs (well marked, but stay aware).
This is a short trail following the rim of the canyon. It has some nice scenery as it dips down toward the creek on the Canyon Trail. This connects the High Trail and Canyon Trail.
