Information

In 1803, President Jefferson commissioned Lewis & Clark to find a navigable passage between the Missouri and Columbia Rivers. This beautiful byway is the easiest way to trace their Idaho route along the Clearwater and Lochsa Rivers. (Their actual trail lies on the mountainous ridges above the rivers.) At 191 miles, this is a 4.5 hour trip through the land of the Nez Perce Indians. Full services are in Orofino, Kamiah and Kooskia with partial services in several other spots. Highlights along the way include the Nez Perce National Historic Park headquarters, numerous Lewis & Clark or Nez Perce historical or cultural sites, Dworshak State Park and opportunities to raft the Lochsa or Clearwater rivers.
