Off-road club hosting Clark-Red Lodge ride on Saturday

Members of the Northwest Wyoming Off-Highway Vehicle Alliance plan to spend their Saturday riding a scenic trail from the Clark area to Red Lodge — and you're invited to join them.

Anyone is welcome to ride with the group as it travels the Meeteetse Trail.

A 48-mile round trip, it's described as a casual, scenic ride that's appropriate for all off-highway vehicle types and driver skill levels. The route is a two-track road that follows a historic wagon trail and offers views of the front range of the Beartooth Mountains.

The group will meet up at 9 a.m. at an unloading area near the boundary of the Shoshone National Forest. There will be a two-hour break in Red Lodge, with the group expecting to make it back to the trailhead around 4 p.m.

To get there, take Wyo. Highway 120 north of Cody and turn west onto Road 1AB, across from the Edelweiss bar. When the road splits, stay right on 1AB. (You should go past the Clark Elementary School; if you end up at the Clarks Fork Canyon, you missed the turn).

Stay on the road (it will bend to the left) until you reach the forest boundary, about 10.5 miles from the Edelweiss.

The Northwest Wyoming Off-Highway Vehicle Alliance recommends being prepared for rain and bringing a camera for wildlife. Drivers also need a Wyoming multipurpose vehicle license plate and a U.S. Forest Service-approved exhaust system to take the Meeteetse trail.

If you have questions, contact Philip Sheets at 307-272-6329.
