You could certainly go X-C over to the Lakes, or take the marked trails 
as shown on all maps.  Why you inquire is unclear, as Kite Lake is a 
popular destination, directly and commonly accessed from the Cunningham 
Crk TH you mention.  In terms of fun (not time) however, taking the train 
remains an outstanding journey, without equal in the US.  The prices have 
gone up dramatically the past few years, so be prepared.
