Not crazy at all! My kids hiked that far at 5, they don't even notice the distance because the terrain and sights are so interesting. (It's not like 4 miles of sidewalk) Just bring lots of water and snacks.
Have fun : )
Quoting AshEiler: Has he done it before?? That might be a bit much for a child.
Quoting Jblb: Does she not realize the average 5 year old probably walks/runs more than that in a day...
My kids could do it at 4, my BFFs girls couldn't do it. It depends and you know your son.
