The Trailhead Routine

One of the most important things I’ve learned about hiking with babies and toddlers is the importance of not starting a hike when my kiddos are hungry or when they have full diapers.

Long gone are the days when I would just grab my pack out of the trunk and be on my merry little way. Taking 10-15 minutes at the trailhead to fuel up has prevented many tears on the trail. Here’s a glimpse into our trailhead routine.

You know your family hikes a lot when your kids don’t have a bedtime routine but they do have a trailhead routine!

Do any other outdoor families go through a similar routine before starting a hike/ski/snowshoe adventure?
