Near Clark, the Morrison Trail is a 25 mile route open to ATV riding. The Morrison Trail is a 25 mile route beginning near the Montana- Wyoming border south of Red Lodge Montana and ending near Clark, WY. The trail meanders through meadows for the first four miles and then begins a choppy ascent for the next three miles, summitting at 10,200 ft. After the summit and spectacular views, the trail begins an easy descent for the next four miles through pine forests and meadows. At about mile 12, the trail begins an extremely steep and loose descent with switchbacks. Be careful on this section. The last four miles gives you beautiful views of the Clarks Fork of the Yellowstone River and some easy riding.
Directions to Trailhead: Head south on US Highway 212 from Red Lodge for about 40 miles. Once you cross into Wyoming, you will descend by switchbacks, eventually coming to a straightaway where Long Lake is on your right, and a meadow is on your left. The trailhead is at the southern end of the lake on your left. If you want to shuttle a car, take old Highway 292 out of Clark, Wy and park where it turns into Clark Fork Canyon Rd. (it will turn to gravel).
Overall, Morrison Trail is the 7th most popular ATV riding trail of all 27 ATV trails in Wyoming.
