We visited PEEC as a family with a 5.5yr old and a 65yr old. We took the tumbling waters trail and was very happy we did. I would say the trail was easy one moderate spot walking back up from the falls. You go through various types of forest and eco systems. There were about 10 different types of mushrooms along the way from a glass purple to a fire orange. The overlook was a great photo op and the waterfall at the bottom was beautiful, relaxing, and well worth the litle over 3 miles hike. My father and husband took the opportunity to show my son how to skip rocks while at the bottom. You could feel the air get cooler as you made the descent down which was great on a hot day. The trails are all well marked and maintained. There are plenty of opportunities to teach children and learn some things yourselves. The education center itself does charge $5 for go into the interactive room but was well worth it. My son explored a mock batcave and learned a lot, sat in true to scale eagles nest and learned about aquaponics and worm farming. The hiking trails are free as there is no entrance fee. There are a lot of stated programs for families, singles, couples, and groups from fishing, to a herp hike, to birding... and we will take advantange of them the next time we go. There is a short 1/2 mile sensory trail that take blindfolded to increase awareness and hone your skills and we can't wait to try that. Very pretty place and well worth a visit if your near the area. Staff was friendly and full of information, bathrooms were clean, and plenty of literature to take away.
