The great outdoors is always calling, and if you're a super active adventurous family, that means a whole lot of hiking, mountaineering, trail running, mountain biking, and all other manners of activity likely to come with a good dose of mud.

But fear not! We've searched up hill and down dale for the best waterproof trousers for kids out there, and we're sure that our selection can put up with any bad weather. Even better, if you're in need of inspiration for where to walk next, we've got multiple recommendations - take these seven trails in Surrey, for example.
