Melissa, where did you go backpacking? I recently took the 9 year old on his first trip and it was a bit rough. I'm hoping to find a few places that are shorter and 5 year old friendly.

We went near Lassen in the Caribou Wilderness. Its near Chester (which is near Lake Almanor which is sort of a bit near Chico but not really). It was a really long drive from Sac 3+ hrs but it was a really easy, mostly flat 1.75 mile hike to a series of lakes. It would be mosquito hell in the spring but this late in summer it was lovely. Last time Biscuit went backpacking it was Point Reyes and the hike was a bit rough for the 4 year olds (about 3+ miles in and hilly) but thats another spot to consider.

Have fun!
