Clark Spring trail 40 is a long winded climb when heading towards trail 37 from 349. There is some technical climbing with water bars and tight switchbacks. This can be a great out and back when done in this direction as the return trip is primarily downhill and very fun.

       Yo man the lower part of this trail is trail 37 Little Granite, Trail 40 is Clark Springs. Will upload a GPS track for 37, 38, 39, and 40. See prescott-trailmaps.com/prescott/tn2w3.html in the meantime
