A grunt of a ride to take you to the peak of Kinport and a look over Pocatello.

Description

Starting from the Upper City Creek Parking lot, this well-maintained dirt road cuts toward Upper City Creek Trail and follows it until the trail comes to the road - this part a car can drive up. Once you get to Sap Tree you'll follow the Kinport road sign. From here, the trail tries your stamina. A car cannot make this drive, but most high clearance vehicles can. This is a grind with few respite points along the trail.

This slog is rocky, rutted, and loose at various points throughout the trail. However, once you make it to the saddle, head to the left and toward the towers and you'll summit Kinport. From there you can have 360 views of the area - well worth the effort.

There are a few options for heading back down. You can head toward the Cusick Creek trail, head back the way you came, or (and the most popular) take Sap Tree down. Many bikers will have a vehicle drive them up to the saddle and ride down Sap Tree.
