Completed in 2020, The Link & Kicking Horse Trail combine to close a loop of about 10 miles on the Soldier Ridge Trail System.
The Link is 1.2 miles and connects Hoot Loop to Kicking Horse Trail via public and private land. Like Hidden Hoot Trail, it is designed for great fun by mountain bikers, hikers, runners and anyone who wishes to experience the “away from town feeling” while being right on the edge of town.
Kicking Horse Trail is 1.5 miles and connects at the junction of Soldier Ridge Trail and Soldier Ridge Bench Trail. Like its name implies, Kicking Horse Trail is open to equestrian use in addition to hiking, biking, running, walking, birding, wildlife watching, flower finding, plant peeping and virtually any other people-powered mode of outdoor recreation.
This 3 mile lollipop trail traverses shaded draws, wetlands, and sweeping views of the Bighorns. It is perfect for running, hiking and has quickly become the area’s most popular bike ride. Hidden Hoot Trail connects to the Sheridan Pathways system which makes going from your front door to the outdoors easier than ever before!
Directions: Continue onto The Link Trail from Hoot Loop or continue onto Kicking Horse Trail from the junction at Soldier Ridge Trail.
