hiking

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.
