For example, on our last hiking day, we went to Sky Pond, a 10-mile roundtrip hike that was stunningly beautiful but also pretty difficult. The trail guide's text was almost entirely about how the lakes along the way got their names and only very briefly described the route. It did little either to explain that this hike is one of the best in the park, or to warn about the difficult parts -- which are helpful to know when you're hiking with kids. It labeled the hike as moderately easy and made only a vague and unclear reference to the part of the trail where you have to climb a slippery wall of almost vertical loose rocks beside a waterfall.
It did have one good aspect though -- my family had a lot of laughs about how ridiculously bad the trail descriptions were.
