There are 22 miles of Lewis and Clark Trail in Lewis County.  The expedition traveled through Lewis County on their return trip in 1806.  Their route is west of the river across rolling prairie at the top of the small county, Lewis County is strategically located to have an impact on the Lewis & Clark Bicentennial.  Kamiah is a major community in Lewis County.  It is located on US Highway 12, and will host visitors traveling the Lewis & Clark corridor.  Long Camp or Camp Chopunnish is just across the river from Kamiah in Idaho County and the community of Kamiah will host visitors at this site.
