“A fun descent from Little Granite Mountain Trail #37 to the Granite Basin area.”— Charlie Glasel
If you want to descend the Clark Springs Trail, you'll have to earn it via a climb up Little Granite Mountain Trail #37 off Iron Springs Rd. The upper part of the trail clings to steep side hills and there are several sharp switchbacks. Lower, the trail straightens out a bit and is still a fun descent. At the bottom, take a right on Trail #261 to get back to Granite Basin.
The Clark Springs Trail #40 provides campers at Granite Basin Recreation Area with a day trip along an attractive riparian corridor to Clark Spring. This is not a heavily used trail. It is likely you wont see another soul if you're out on a weekday. Restrooms are available at the trailhead in Granite Basin.
