We hiked in about one mile from the trail head. Given we hiked with a 2 1/2 year-old with all the gear, this is about equivalent to a ten-mile hike in normal backpacking miles.
Right down by the river, plenty of fun for a girl to run about in a meadow. Showing her the milky way took the cake.
And I got to cast a few flies in the creek as well. I caught numerous small fish, but none big enough for dinner.
