Discover the Epic Lewis and Clark Hiking Trail

While the PCT, AT, and CDT cut through the country from north to south, the Lewis and Clark Trail takes a horizontal approach. Following the path of Lewis and Clark’s 1804-1806 expedition and preparatory trips, the trail runs from Pittsburgh to the mouth of the Columbia River in Oregon.

Unlike more traditional long trails, however, you can’t hike the Lewis and Clark Trail end-to-end—not unless you’re ready for a whole lot of road walking. A lot of the route follows busy highways and interstates. Once you get farther west, though, the backpacking, rafting, and day hiking opportunities increase. Read on for the best hikeable sections of this historic path.
