The new Fort
to Sea Lewis and Clark 7 mile US Park Service trail is now finished. It runs between Ft. Clatsop National Monument and the
Sunset Beach access Road where a new parking lot and information building is ready!
|Fort Clatsop is just north of Sunset Beach. Head north on Hwy. 101 and follow the signs. It's
where Lewis and Clark spent the winter during their Journey of Northwest Discovery and really should not be missed. The fort
has been rebuilt and is managed by the US Park Service. Rangers play the parts of Lewis and Clark and the whole family will
enjoy the visit to Fort Clatsop. It should also be noted that Lewis and Clark in all probability used the Sunset Lake (aka
Neacoxie Lake) as it is narrow but a very long waterway when they traveled from Fort Clatsop to the Seaside area. We also
know the trail route they took from Fort Clatsop to Sunset Beach. This is the new 7 mile "Fort to Sea" hiking trail that is
open for public use. |
The entry fee is $3.00 per person or $5.00 per car load and they accept CASH ONLY, no checks
or credit cards.
