Clean Up a Bare Earth DEM Created From Lidar Points

Hi everone,
and thanks in advance for any reply or help.

I have used lidar point imported into arcgis in point shape file.
I extracted the ground returns and used them to creat a bare earth DEM. I tried using TIN and IDW.

when the raster was created I noticed many small high peaks where they sould not be.
I think that is either an error in the extraction of ground points or in the raster interpolation process.

My question is: How can I clean the raster of these unwanted peaks to have a smooth bare earth DEM

thank,
Mohammad Dashti
