The Kip trail is suitable for year-round use, snowshoes or skis would be fine for winter use. The trail is only occasionally marked, but is easily followed. The trail alternates between different stands of evergreens and low-land hardwoods. The trail loosely follows Little River. There are plenty of nice views, and also a boardwalk that extends into a wetland. The trail ends at the SLU Wachtmeister Field House on county route 27. Parking is found there and the trail can be done from that direction as well.
A second lesser-traveled trail is found on the right (north) 0.1-miles from the beginning trailhead. This trail leads past a lean-to and rejoins the main trail 0.8-miles later.
