Lewis & Clark Trail
History and local involvement, was key to the creation of this significant 1.5 mile trail through one of America's most historical regions. The story of Lewis and Clark began with their epic expedition along the banks of the Ohio River in Clarksville, Indiana. This culturally rich area is also home to a vast collection of historically significant places such as the Buffalo Trace, Native American settlements, pioneer camps and one of the largest fossil beds in the country and the opportunity to tell the heroic story of George Rogers Clark, whose victories doubled the size of the United States during the Revolutionary War. These made for numerous interesting stories to tell through interpretive signage, trail design features and selective placement of trail nodes.
