The Clarks Fork Canyon Pasture is located 37 miles north of Cody, Wyoming the Rodeo Capital of the World. The property has direct access to the Clarks Fork River scenic corridor from Highway 8VC. Powell, a rural agricultural town and home to Northwest College, is 30 miles east. Red Lodge, Montana, a beautiful ski resort and entrance to the scenic Beartooth Highway is 32 miles northwest of Clark. Billings, Montana’s largest city is 84 miles north of the property.
Beyond the highway one travels to the south along the Absaroka Mountain Range. This area of the ranch would be ideal for development into exclusive home site properties of smaller acreages because of the exceptional views and proximity to the Park County market.
The property consists of 718+/- acres. The property is adjacent to State land along the west boundary, providing spectacular unobstructed views. A survey of the property has been prepared.
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.
Clark borders the Shoshone National Forest, state, and BLM -administered lands and the Clark’s 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. - source: Wikipedia
It is an easy scenic drive to Yellowstone National Park as well as many other recreational opportunities within the Yellowstone ecosystem.
