Day hiking with kids isn't quite as simple as taking the kids onto a trail and walking. Many parents have no idea where there even is a trail. They wonder how to keep their kids properly dressed for the wilds and how they'll ever carry their infant all those miles. They struggle to figure out how much water and food to bring. They ponder what to do when their children get bored on the trail or start to misbehave. They know there must be a better way to cross rough terrain than the balancing act they're attempting. They want to understand how to treat injuries from blisters to broken bones, of what to do if they're lost or even forced to stay the night in the woods. This book covers all of that and more. Hikes with Tykes author Rob Bignell is an avid hiker, long-time editor, and former infantry grunt who's been taking his son on day hikes for nearly five years. Together they've scaled summits almost two miles high, crossed America's driest deserts, and walked beneath trees soaring 15 stories over their heads. Now he shares his knowledge and experience with you to ensure you and your children enjoy the perfect day hike.
