Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail ...
The Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail is approximately 3,700 miles long and extends from Wood River, Illinois, to the mouth of the Columbia River near present day Astoria, Oregon. It follows the historic outbound and inbound routes of the Lewis and Clark Expedition. The trail connects eleven states -- Illinois, Missouri, Kanasa, Iowa, Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, Montana, Idaho, Washington, and Oregon -- and many Tribal lands. The Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail allows travelers to follow the approximate route of the Corps of Discovery.

National Historic Trails System ...
The Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail was established by Congress in 1968 as part of the national trails system. The Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail is one of two national historic trails traversing through both Oregon and Washington, the other being the Oregon National Historic Trail.
