Family of 6 with the youngest being 9.
We took the long trail up (1.5 hours) and the long trail down and added the rock garden trail that brings you by Heart Lake (1.0 hours).
A very nice family experience. Only about a 15 minute drive form Lake Placid.
Although I hear it is less challenging than the short trail up it still does get the blood pumping and has some tricky spots that require safe maneuvers.
The information center sells inexpensive back packs drinks and snacks for the hike.
