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.

      Pretty dry, some damp areas as you get lower in the trees. Super fun to rip it though!
