Using google earth, you can see what looks like a new town but it is really Kicking Horse Job Corps. Most of the current population of Kicking Horse resides at KHJC. Kicking Horse is spread out and covers 3.5 sq. mi. Elevation is 3,064 feet above sea level. There are 29 housing units in Kicking Horse. That is according to both the 2000 and 2010 census. That represents a problem of course since Kicking Horse now has a population of 289. The number of housing units must include those at KHJC. Economically, Kicking Horse is doing poorly. At least 41% of the cdp's population lives below the poverty line. Below are several links to pictures of Kicking Horse, Flathead Reservation.
