  1. Thanks! Remember to check the websites to make sure the trails and mountain transport are open. Most aren't open until late June, but a few open in mid-May.

  2. This is great! As another post idea…..I would love to see these playgrounds linked with a nearby family friendly hotel and / or restaurant so we could build a possible trip around each area.
