Beautiful scenery and definitely nothing strenuous about the hiking!
The next day we started in the direction of home but did some internet searches to see what we could find in the way of hiking trails along the way. Kings Hill Pass trail seemed reasonable . . . difficulty rating was "hard" but it was a loop trail and 7.5 miles would make a pleasant half day. Andrew downloaded the trail map from AllTrails.com which we've had good luck with in the past.
Several hours later of up and downhill bushwhacking and following very old and overgrown logging trails we'd gone about 6 miles and our route was some vague resemblance of loop back to the car. I'm not convinced there's an actual trail here other than the old logging roads!

|We were "up there" somewhere before bushwhacking our way back down to the valley and creek.|
|This rock wall and arch was built circa 1932. The log cabin in the background was the first permanent structure built in Great Falls in 1884 and this is its third location.|
|Beautiful stained glass.|
|A lovely home for ducks, geese and swans.|
|The old and beautifully restored railway station, with its distinctive tower, sits at one end of the park.|
