Lewis and Clark National Historical Park (LCNHP) is the home site of Fort Clatsop’s 2nd replica. What many visitors don’t know about us is that we’re much more than just Fort Clatsop! There are a myriad of other sites that are either managed by LCNHP or by State Parks, connected by Lewis and Clark’s time here on the coast and going by the name “Lewis and Clark National and State Historical Parks.” Among these are sites such as:
- Clark’s Dismal Nitch
- Netul Landing
- Middle Village / Station Camp
- Fort Stevens State Park
- And many more!
On top of these locations, there are also 14.5 miles of hiking trails
split between 5 unique trails located within the units of LCNHP.
- The Fort to Sea Trail
- The Netul River Trail
- The Kwis Kwis Trail
- The South Slough Trail
- The Clay Pit Pond Trail
Are all of these names familiar to you? If not don’t worry. Instead, you may wish to stay tuned and make sure to catch our next newsletters. From here on out we are going to be covering the many sites, trails, and more that Lewis and Clark National Historical Park has to offer.
