You can bring a family outing to your local trails at any time of the year, but it’s a different experience in the fall. With the leaves changing and falling, forests turn into a beautiful, colorful landscapes that will keep your kids interested and eager to explore. Hiking is a great exercise, especially if the trails are hilly. You can easily spend a half day hiking trails, and it won’t seem like exercise to your kids or even you. Exploring a forest can also give you the materials for a fun fall craft–you can press leaves between sheets of wax paper, resulting in a colorful piece of art.
