Haskins Family: Calloway Peak 2

My oldest and I hiked the Profile Trail to Calloway peak many months ago, and ever since then I've been really wanting to get my wife and youngest up to see the views here. However, hiking to Calloway Peak is no easy feat for a four-year-old! In fact, these trails aren't even meant for children. But we were eager to see how they would do, and what better way than to head out on the trail and test the waters?

Haskins Family: Grandfather Mountain

Most of our adventures are done as an entire family, but on this particular occasion the length of the hike meant that Parker (our youngest) would have to stay behind. He typically does pretty well, and hikes at least six miles if the trail isn't strenuous. This trail, however, was a summit push to the top of Grandfather Mountain, which would prove too strenuous for our littlest one.
