Anyone Done The Labarque Walkabout Trilogy?

I've been wanting to do the Labarque Walkabout Trilogy near St Lousi for a while. My kids are 5 & 7, but pretty tough. Does anyone know if this series is too much for kids, or maybe too dangerous or something? They should have no problem on a 2-3 mile hike, as long as I take some breaks. Thanks in advance.

This is a great series of caches and very enjoyable after rain because of the wet weather waterfalls. It really isn't dangerous if you keep the kids away from the edges of the bluffs and the waterfalls. Very scenic with a few up and down hills but no real trails to follow.


Pay close attention to the parking location and the details to get to the actual Labarque nature preserve. Make some WP's as you go to make it easier when you return. The toughest climb is from the road up to the first corner of the nature preserve. If you have no problem with that, the rest is easy and very scenic.


I did this over the Christmas holidays and it was a blast.
