Description

Trailhead is well marked off Hwy 97. Well-maintained gravel parking lot holds 12-15 vehicles. Picturesque view of the Missouri River at about the half way point. A Boy Scout Eagle project provides a lovely wooden bench to sit on to enjoy the view. If you intend to do the shorter Clark Trail, watch carefully for markers around 2.5 miles. Markers are a little hard to see. We encountered many hikers with dogs on a leash, as well as several trail runners.
