Overview
Clark Spring Trail #40 begins in open chaparral near Granite Basin Lake and follows a nearly straight course to the southwest. It then climbs continuously through ponderosa pine forest to the Clark Spring area. From here, the trail climbs higher through ponderosa, pinyon pine, and Gambel oak to the pass between Two Rock Mountain and Little Granite Mountain where it meets Little Granite Mountain Trail #37. There are good views of the San Francisco Peaks. The Clark Springs Trail #40 provides campers at Granite Basin Recreation Area with a day trip along an attractive riparian corridor to Clark Spring.
