    Did a ride today up Rock Creek Road / Forest Service 421. Nice elevation climb on a jeep trail that goes to an old Chromium mine and a wilderness area on top of the range.

    Yes... I discovered a way from Line Creek to Morrison Jeep trail via Clark today.

    I am enjoying the adventure of discovering the trails and roads here in Red Lodge. I attached a link to pictures from the "Line Creek" Ride yesterday and soon I will post some pictures of the Morrison Jeep trail.

    I have been guilty of riding without a map (makes for more of an adventure) and today I made it to Morrison Jeep trail via the foot hills (mostly dirt).

    What I have found so far is Meeteetse hits Robertson Draw Rd south of Belfry by say 10 miles and that is where I loose the Clark Direction of the trail and instead head back up a canyon to Line Creek after a foot hill section at Gold Creek that is circumnavigated up an over on Forest Road 2008. At the intersection to Line Creek I found a road that heads back to Clark and then a paved road that goes to the entrance of Clark Fork / Yellowstone river Canyon and the start of the Morrison Jeep trail.

    So Far the part of the Jeep trail that parallels the Yellowstone river is remarkably beautiful and the fishing amazing, while I was there I spent some time late afternoon fishing with a couple of "old timers" that grew up in the foot hills there and went to school at Powell Wy. Fishing was quite good for Rainbow and Cutthroat and I understand that there are White fish and some other Brook trout there as well.

    You need to head up little sunlite in Wyoming.My friend George went up today to the end where there is an abandoned mine.He said when he got to the end of the trail there was a steaming pile of fresh griz poop!!!:rofl Pretty easy ride he said.
