HikingGreat!

Came in from the South to 40-foot hole. Nice trail with no problems keeping track of where we were.

HikingGreat!

Very enjoyable hike. I'd recommend staying on the trail closer to the river (to the left), for better views. My mom and dog both felt comfortable with that route, even though it was rockier with more elevation change.

HikingGreat!No shade

It’s a great day hike. The trail forks and comes back together multiple times. If you stay to the right and go up, it’s easier than staying left and hiking next to the cliff/ravine.

It’s a good trail with great views of the “ravine” but it is rated easy and says “good for dogs” and “kid friendly.” I would have been nervous for my dog on this- there were a few inclines that were very rocky. I also don’t think my 4 year old could have done it. My 7 year old did fine but she did fall a few times. Also the trail goes close to the ravine so I wouldn’t have felt safe if I had my whole family (both kids and the dog).

Easy trail. Definitely download the map because there’s never signal out in medicine park. Pretty views. Great for my dog as well.

Lots of different pathways to follow but easy to keep on track with the app. No service so make sure you’ve got them downloaded and such. Saw a few baby bison too, very cool.

Great trail. An uncommonly warm December day, but the hike was easy to moderate. From the south end of Kite Trail one can take any of several routes, from fairly even ground to extremely rocky, and still arrive at Forty Foot Hole. Just beyond it is a small cascading waterfall worth checking out.

It was a good hike today. Perfect weather. The trail is okay. Lots of rocks, and several inclines to negotiate (especially if you are older or have knee issues). Pleasant hike overall. There are very few markers on the trail, so much of the time you don’t know if you’re on the right path.

Going south on the trail, starting from lost lake, it’s easier to stay on the trail than going north from the southern trailhead.

Pretty trail, nice little morning hike. The first half is pretty flat and then it gets rocky. The trail was difficult to find near the end and there are a lot of paths that the wildlife carved out.

Nice out and back trail. Great scenery, especially along the creek. It was fairly strenuous in sections, but not too difficult. There are numerous trails along this route and additional markings would be helpful.

HikingGreat!No shadeRocky

Kite trail is great little hike. I found it to only be about 1 mile each way (2 total). As other reviews say, it is POORLY marked so you will definitely end up just following some other trail made by groups before you. But my advice is stick to the river. If you are forced to pick left or right, stick closer to the ledge where the river is. Leads to a view of 2 waterfalls (1 bigger and a 2nd smaller one a little further down)! This route does involve some mild rock climbing and mild elevation as the trail winds up the gorge. But nothing I couldn’t handle on a recovering sprained ankle.
