I've run the Clark trail several times and never grow tired of it. Its beautiful and challenging. If you want a real challenge though, continue onto the Lewis trail for the 8+ mile round trip.

This is a beautiful hike but the two trails are not well marked. We intended to do the 5 mile Clark trail but ended up turning left instead of going straight when the trails diverged. There is a marker with arrows pointing in either direction...More
