Trail Overview

This wide easy trail travels right along the banks of the stunning Clark Fork River. You'll pass fields of hay and tons of spectacular bridges and waterways. A pit toilet double boat load is in the area at the trail's end. Plenty of parking and turnaround spaces and fishing docks. It's a short, sweet trail with amazing views. This trail is hard-packed dirt with room to pass oncoming and the occasional pothole.

From Sandpoint, turn right onto Highway 200 and drive to Clark Fork. About halfway thru Clark Fork is the Clark Fork Pantry. Stop here for incredible sandwiches on homemade bread and peanut butter cookies. A bit further on 200, you will see a Forest Service sign on the right to Johnson Creek Launch.
