The network for trails by the Cusick Creek trailhead is quite extensive, but you can see the radio towers on Kinport Peak in the distance and if you just go straight in that direction, that's the right way. From the trailhead, it looks like you are going to be hiking through grasslands, with no cover, but in fact, most of the hike is shaded in the trees. It's a steady uphill, but never that steep in any one place. The trail is a little rocky in places, but otherwise excellent and probably useable by ATVs. You can drive to the top of this summit, but the hike was very nice. It looks like you could do quite a bit of additional hiking and exploring along the ridges at the top. I imagine that the views are great, but right now you can't see so much, due to the smoke. No water or restrooms at the trailhead. I saw only 2 other hikers and the mountain bikers were all on other trails.

Beautiful treed hike, very steep.

I absolutely love this trail. I use it all the time with my family and our dog. It’s the perfect place for biking or hiking. There are trailheads for flatter, easier hikes or steeper, uphill climbs for a great view of Pocatello and the mountains!

Fun scenic trails just hard to get out of others way with a stroller

Very pretty scenery. Not super wide trails so hard to get out of the way of bikers or to let others pass.

Beautiful in May!!!

The trail was super short, yet the whole trail is all uphill. My family (which I would consider to be very athletic) had to rest every few yards to catch our breath. On the way down you would have to crawl on your butt to lower the risk of falling down. Overall though, I would consider the trail to be very fun and it would be great for training.

Excellent trails for hiking along the creek. It's really well maintained by officials and citizens alike and very clean. I didn't see a single bit of trash the entire time. The bridges are amazing and very nice. Pocatello is a gem for things like this and it's nice to explore a trail so nicely put together.

highly used

Beautiful trail. Especially in the fall with the leaves changing colors. First section on the city creek trail really awesome colors. The upper portion, the loop, has good views of Pocatello.

Lots of runners on lower trail, and a handful of MTB on upper. BTW would recommend for xcountry riding.
