Hiking and backpacking with kids! Taking your children with you into the backcountry can be an exciting and rewarding adventure for children and parents, alike. I have been taking my 5-year old grandson with me on overnight backpacking trips and he can easily hike, by himself, a 5-mile approach to our intended basecamp. We just slip him a Tiger's Milk bar every once in awhile and he's good to go. He's got his own gear, including sleeping bag and loves sleeping in the tent.
