Lewis & Clark National Historic Trail


The Lewis & Clark National Historic Trail chronicles the Corps of Discovery Expedition led by Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, 1803-1806. In May 2019, the trail was extended to include the Eastern Legacy which trails the Ohio River from its beginning in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to its mouth in Cairo, Illinois and on to St. Louis, Missouri.

Follow the self-guided tour maps below, and look for the sign symbols designating sites located on the route. Notable sites in Paducah include the 1905 William Clark Market House Museum, life-size statues of figures from the Lewis and Clark expedition at the National Quilt Museum, Floodwall Murals and Paducah's Riverfront.

We encourage travelers to call ahead and visit websites to confirm plans. Reference our COVID-19 resource page for the latest reopening updates and local information!
