There are three accesses to the Shoshone National Forest, the Clarks Fork Canyon being the most spectacular. From the mouth of the Canyon you can horseback ride, hike or 4- wheel drive five miles along the river with towering mountain walls on either side. At the end of the canyon, the trail on the north side switchbacks to the top of the Beartooth Mountains and goes over to Highway 212. This is the Morrison Jeep Trail. It is an easy scenic drive to Yellowstone National Park as well as many other recreational opportunities within the Yellowstone ecosystem.
Clark borders the Shoshone National Forest, state, and BLM -administered lands and the Clarks Fork River/Canyon, making it a prime area for the outdoor enthusiast. Winters are moderately mild, with elevation averages of approximately 4,500 feet (1,400 m). The area is semi-arid high desert sagebrush plains with little rain or snowfall, averaging less than 10 per year, as the bordering mountains squeeze much of the moisture from the atmosphere. It was a wintering area for Indian tribes in the 19th century, due to the milder temperatures, relative lack of snow, abundant sunshine and game animals.
Clark is an unincorporated community with close relationships among the roughly 300 full-time residents (who share approximately 50 square miles of real estate). Residents are a mix of farmers, ranchers, and retirees who come to the area for the peaceful and relaxed atmosphere. Otherwise those working generally have employment in Powell or Cody.
The first Clark post office was established in 1891 and the first school was established in 1895. There is no longer a post office. Mail comes through the Powell post office.
The Clarks Fork Recreation Center hosts community activities including an annual rodeo. There is an elementary school in Clark, which is part of Park County School District #1 in Powell, but most junior high and high school students bus to Powell and the rest to Belfry, Montana.
