What to pack on a hike with kids?
Pack a small lightweight hiking backpack with essentials. Our must-have are these items.
- snacks like this
- emergency kit
- refillable water bottles (our favorite)
- mini binoculars
- kid’s waterproof windbreakers I like women’s waterproof windbreakers like this and men’s waterproof windbreakers like these. They are lightweight and packable.
A small retractable magnifying glass like this. It’s easy to print and bring the scavenger hunt! (a small clipboard is optional) Don’t forget your cell phone and charger.
Easy Hikes With Kids In Central, California
- Fiscalini Ranch Preserve – 1 mile long – Cambria, California
- Bluff Trail Cambria California – 2.4-mile loop – Cambria California
- Harmony Headlands – 4.3-mile loop – Between Cayucos and Harmony. Parking is often taken. Might be harder with smaller kids. Use a pack or stroller. The trail descends through a picturesque ravine before reaching a bluff overlooking the ocean. This might be the hardest part of the trail.
- Moonstone Beach Trail – 2 miles long. Easy and kid-friendly.
For more trails and other hikes, we like to use the All Trails app. It has hiker reviews. And helpful hiking information about the trials. Do you enjoy taking nature walks?
