In 1804, an expedition led by Meriwether Lewis and William Clark departed Camp Wood, Illinois, on a journey to discover the source of the great Missouri River and map a path to the Pacific Ocean. Traveling by canoe, on horseback, and on foot, the Corps of Discovery completed its mission successfully, returning safely to St. Louis, Missouri, in 1806. Bicycling the Lewis & Clark Trail is the cyclist's indispensable handbook to the route of the Lewis and Clark expedition. Filled with detailed maps, information on road surfaces and traffic, and a wealth of historical detail, it guides the modern adventurer through the spectacular country first recorded by Lewis and Clark.
