Lewis and Clark Discovery Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This hike replicates the route of Captain William Clark’s famous hike of 1805. Travel a mostly paved path from the Port of Ilwaco over a bluff through maritime forest to coastal wetlands and waves of dunes along the Pacific Ocean. Stop at historical displays along the way, including a gray whale skeleton and magnificent bronze sculptures commemorating the Corps of Discovery’s epic journey.

You can access this trail at ten different locations, including from the Bolstad Arch in Long Beach, making for plenty of shorter hiking options. Any section will do, but try to arrange for a car shuttle to do the whole trail in one sweep. Strong hikers and runners won’t have any problem doing the complete trail out-and-back."
