Hey @itdawson!

One of my favorite more fun than challenging areas is the area around Carr-Feeley Lakes. You do need a 4x4 vehicle to get to the trailhead (or be willing to add 3 uphill miles to your trek). You can stay right at the trailhead and do day hikes or pack in a few miles and set up shop near one of the many lakes along the reasonably-flat-for-the-Sierra trail. I've done the trek with kiddos before and it is lovely!

Happy trails!
