Long Description:

Lewis and Clark

On their way west, in 1805, Lewis and Clark descended into Clearwater Canyon on an old Indian trail across from here.  After more than a month's search, they finally had reached a westward river where they could use canoes.  From here they continued another 16 miles with their pack horses before they found a campsite with trees suitable for making canoes.  But at this point, they had finished their difficult mountain passage to navigable Columbia water. ~ text of marker # 249
