Lewis and Clark Trail, 2016

This year I hope to retrace the route of the Lewis and Clark expedition. I will be starting on Friday, March 25 at the confluence of the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers. I will be walking the first part of the Trail until I get to Yankton, South Dakota. My kayak will be waiting there.

The plan is to paddle upstream as far as Three Forks, Montana, or even Twin Bridges. Then I'll follow the L&C route on foot, over Lemhi Pass, Lost Trail Pass and Lolo Pass, and follow the Lolo Trail to Weippe and on to Orofino, Idaho. There I'll get back in my kayak for the trip to the Pacific.

If all goes well, that's about 3,300 miles. You can find more information about my trip, see a map of the route on which I will be posting position updates, and also see a list of gear I will be using, on this page.

Have a good day!
