The kids and I have been trying to get out to some different kid-friendly hikes during their extended break from school, and Peeley has been on the list. Seeing @dixieflyer triplog this week inspired me to get this one done. We got started around 0930 and headed uphill. I let the kids set the pace, as usual, and it was slow but fairly steady. The spotted a horned lizard, and my daughter held it for a minute before we continued on our way. About 200' past the wilderness sign, we turned off towards the summit at a large cairn. The use trail and cairns up to the summit were reasonably easy to follow, and where they faded out occasionally, it was easy enough to keep heading up the correct direction. Breezy at the top, and skies were a little hazy, but the views were good. We had a snack and rested for a few minutes before heading back down. Ended up following a game trail part of the way back down to the main trail; while it may have been a little steeper, it was easy to follow and brush free. My son slipped in one place and scraped his knee, but some gauze and tape took care of that. The only people we saw all day were at the junction with the main trail. We said hello and headed down while they headed up to the summit. Quick, but warm, hike back down to the trailhead, finishing up around 1330. One other vehicle at the trailhead in the morning, but three when we finished. Road is in pretty decent shape, at least medium clearance for a few rocky spots, but overall mostly clear; I used 4wd for the heck of it, but it wasn't necessary. The kids really enjoyed this hike, and I have a feeling they will want to return.
