Project Date(s) Description
Trail Ambassadors--Cooke City/Clark's Fork TH 2019 Jun 1, 2019 – Sep 30, 2019

Please sign up here if you want to serve as a Trail Ambassador at the Clark's Fork Trailhead--the traditional start of the hike known as "The Beaten Path" from Cooke City to the E. Rosebud.

The Table and Tub of materials for Trail Ambassadors is at the Forest Service's administrative cabin which is on the south side of Highway 212 about 1.5 miles east of Cooke City. Look for a kind of obscure dirt road that is almost exactly across the highway from the entrance to Colter Campground. There's a sign that says "Administrative Use Only." Turn on this road, and just a few hundred feet from the highway is a modern building that serves as staff housing and a small office for the Forest Service. It's also where the Campground hosts have a little base of operation.
