The Clarks Fork Trail starts near a horse corral on the northeast side of the small parking lot and travels gradually up and down through sagebrush, grassy areas, and open forests of Douglas firs, Engelmann spruces, lodgepole pines, Rocky Mountain junipers, and quaking aspens. Fantastic views extend in all directions with perhaps the most notable ones to the southwest of Hunter Peak and southeast to the impressive Cathedral Cliffs. Wildflowers abound in late May and June, with larkspur, arrowleaf balsamroot, and, in wetter areas, shooting star being particularly abundant.
