My reply would be neither. Take them to the Caney Creek Wilderness just down the road from the FS RD 106 trail head. Go from the East Trail head to Katy Falls and back. Approx. 4.5 miles. Plenty of good clear clean water, a 35 foot water fall and beautiful bluffs.
If you take them they will come back!
I agree. The scenic values of the wilderness area are much higher than the ERL (I haven't been to L. Blakely). The hike is fairly easy and they will love spending some time at the falls.
