The Clarks Fork area is a scenic multi-use area into some excellent fishing country. There are numerous deep creeks that must be forded before reaching the Yellowstone itself. This area seems to see moderate use with a great deal of it being Horse/burrow and ATV usage. I did not encounter any hikers along this route. The trail is easy to navigate as it simply follows a valley but make sure the rivers are lower before attempting this trip as heavy runoff will prevent you from progressing.
