I'm an avid hiker and this hike was work, but that being said, my ten year old son made it most of the way (although it took a lot of encouragement). When we got to the point where you have to use the chains he was too afraid to go further and quite frankly, I was more scared of him trying (he's not always the most coordinated on land...but he's great in the water:-). He is also quite scared of heights and this is a very steep hike on small ledges. Another family with an 11 year old boy made it all the way to the top and there was a nine year old girl that made it as well. The portion of the trails where chains were used is very steep and the trail is narrow (a man clung to a tree for me to pass), but it was worth the challenge. In my opinion, down is more difficult than up and there were portions where I sat on my bottom to get down. It's a great hike, but don't be fooled; it's not easy.
