The Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail is approximately 4,900 miles long, extending from Pittsburgh, PA to the mouth of the Columbia River, near present day Astoria, Oregon, following the historic outbound and inbound routes of the Lewis and Clark Expedition. The trail was established by Congress in 1978 as part of the national trails system (NTS) as one of four original national historic trails. Today, visitors can follow the approximate route of the Corps of Discovery (Lewis and Clark Expedition members) by exploring the trail using a variety of transportation methods and interpretive means.

The Headquarters for the entire Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail is located in Omaha, Nebraska. We welcome you to our Visitor Center to experience our programming, 25 minute Lewis and Clark video, hands-on exhibits, and bookstore. Rangers provide Lewis and Clark and National Park Service information. America the Beautiful National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Passes are available.

Behind-the-scenes, a multidisciplinary team of specialists with expertise in outdoor recreation, geography, environmental protection, natural and cultural resources, volunteer management, education, and interpretation assist in furthering the mission of the Trail.
