The chances of getting your feet wet are pretty high and very young kids may not be adventurous enough to attempt this hike.  Bring food and water along if you plan to stay out for more than a couple of hours as the trip back to the car would be more than it’s worth.  The best part of the hike?  Permitting water levels are high enough, you can take a plunge into the Devil’s Bathtub at the end of the hike to cool off.
