Lewis and Clark Book available.


"Lewis and Clark Trail, Tracks"


Lewis and Clark GPS Coordinates of the entire trail.

This DVD publication is the only publication that has ever completely documented the travels and GPS coordinates of the Lewis and Clark Expedition. The DVD provides a 230 page detail description of the day-by-day travels of the Lewis and Clark. Each day of their travels is listed with the “Date”, “Events of the day”, “Longitude and Latitude”, “State”, “Who camped at the site”, and “Comments about the events of the day”.

From the list of over 1,000 GPS coordinates, click any campsite and select the view option and the items connect to Google Map or Bling to display a satellite, road map, or 3-Dimentional view of the actual site. The GPS coordinates are of the entire Lewis and Clark Trail but can be selected and downloaded by date, state or various other options. The GPS coordinates can be downloaded to almost all GPS units.

Anyone with the desire to follow the Lewis and Clark Trail will find this tool invaluable. If you simply want to see the Trail, the “View” option will allow you to sit at your desk and view the satellite images of the roads, trails, mountains, and rivers of the most significant adventure in America’s history.

US Map of the Lewis and Clark Trail:


Street and Roads of the trail:


View of a list of campsites:


Lemhi Pass:


Lemhi Pass: The 3D view of the GPS coordinates provides a scenic aerial view of this amazing dirt road that traverses the Pass into Idaho.


Lewis’s first contact with the Shoshoi tribe: This actual site has been debated for 200 years but the GPS coordinates provide strong evidence of where the actual site is located on Lemhi Pass Road.


Museums along the Trail: The GPS coordinates include not only campsites but other significant sites, museums, rock formations, etc along the Trail.


Clark’s Overlook Rock: The GPS coordinates take you to the exact foot steps of this towering rock formation. The only site where Lewis and Clark became lost from each other.


Lolo Summit: Without doubt the most challenging portion of the Lewis and Clark travels was the Lolo Trail across the Bitterroot Mountains of Idaho.


Bear Oil and Root camp: History books discuss this campsite but finding it is a challenge. The Lolo Trail portion of the GPS coordinates take you off Forest Roads to the actual sites of their camps.


First Idaho campsite: After 32,000+ miles of traveling the trail the author found this site this past summer, definitely off the beaten path.


Piramid Rock Road: (Yep, misspelled Pyramid but the name remains) Many sites are simply geological formations mentioned in the Lewis and Clark Journals. Some of these sites would be very difficult to find without the GPS coordinates.


Fort Clatsop: Their final destination is an amazingly scenic site along the Columbia River to the Pacific.


Fort Clatsop: from GPS coordinates.


Clark’s gravesite in St Louis: - Many GPS coordinates simply compliment the history of one’s travels of the trail. If you are not
traveling the trail the GPS coordinates will still allow you to magnify the site and do an aerial view (with GoogleMap or Bling) of the gravesite or any campsite.


This new book, "The Lewis and Clark Trail, Tracks" combines modern day longitude and latitude GPS coordinates of the entire westward as well as the Return (eastward) travels. Each day is documented not only with the GPS coordinates but with the activities of the day, and the turn-by-turn driving directions that accompany the coordinates.

The Lewis and Clark Trail, Tracks (CD version) $39.00
(same book as above but it is a PDF file format to reduce the cost of printing and shipping costs; the PDF file also has a big plus in the standard searching and printing capability of any PDF file.)

The Lewis and Clark Trail, Tracks (printed book version) $59.00
(printed book version is identical to the CD version, simply additional cost of printing and binder.) The printed book also includes a CD with the GPS gpx files of the Trail.

This is the first and only such document of the Lewis and Clark Trail and it was recently presented at the Smithsonian Natural History - Western History Trail Museum.

Also Available:
The Lewis and Clark Trail, Today $24.95
A DVD containing a 200 page description of the Trail, Travels, profiles of each member and 1,200 digital photographs of the Lewis and Clark Trail camps and various sites. You will definitely benefit most from reviewing this DVD before purchasing "The Lewis and Clark Trail, Tracks (Book)

Only 20 to 25 people on AdvRider have purchased the CD.

The picture CD of 1,200 photo's of the Lewis and Clark Trail is by far the most popular item. ($24.95)

If you live in the WA area, you live in one of the best ride areas of the L&C Trail...from Astoria, OR over to Missoula, Montana is my favorite part of the trail, especially the Lolo Motoring Hwy. My favorite find in your area is a cave where Sgt Ordway and Colter caught 3 infant bear cubs and spent the day playing with them...there is a marker there now....but way off the beaten path and real hard to find.

The CD and Book are sold exclusively at Lewis and Clark better bookstores & museums (like at Cape Disappointment in WA) but sold here on AdvRider at a discounted price.

In my case when I left Astoria (following the return journey) my GPS lead me to each campsite all the way back over the Lolo Trail. GPS coordinates came directly from an interpretation of William Clark's measurements of mileage from campsite to campsite and his writing down of latitude as they traveled. I'd estimate that 95% of the GPS coordinates are very accurate and the other 5% are my interpretation of their description of their campsites in the "Lewis and Clark Journals" that was published in 1809.

The GPS coordinates took three of us 2 1/2 years to complete and is the only such publication. You do have to download EasyGPS (free) to export the GPS file to a GPS unit...it's recommended to download gps coordinates by state since there are over 1,000 gps coordinates.

There are currently over 2,000 of the CD/books in circulation and at a least dozen AdvRiders, professional photographers, and RV's that are using my GPS file to travel parts or all of the Lewis & Clark Trail.

It is a total surprise that so many people in other countries are buying the GPS CD ("The Lewis and Clark Trail, Tracks")...especially US military troops in Iraq, Alfganistan, and Europe who plan on doing the Lewis and Clark Trail when they return home.

Campsites in your 'hood. Note 9/14/1805 where they ate a horse.

7-3-06 site is just about on top of my house. I believe that was a lunch stop. Got the GPS numbers on that one?

Must have been across your front yard.

3-July-1806:
Clark and 22 members of the Expedition - near Victor, Montana

Clark's party members are on horseback. Clark leads the largest party of soldiers and civilians 36 miles to a campsite near today's Hamilton, MT. Potts who had a severely cut leg is in much pain after being bounced on a hard riding horse. There is plenty of deer meat available but they also suffer from the tormenting mosquitoes.

Clark wrote in his journal: "I took my leave of Captain Lewis and the Indians (two Nez Perce guides) and at 8:00 AM set out with 19 men, Interpreter Charbonneau, Sacajawea, and infant (1yr 5 mths old) with 50 horses. Clark heads home to St Louis and on this same day Lewis was headed NE to Cut Bank, MT looking for last chance to find a Northwest Passage, and boundary of the United States and Canadian border.

Location: 9 miles South of Victor, Montana. From Victor, MT go South of Hwy 93, go past Dutch Hill Road & Woodside Cutoff Road. About 1 and ¼ mile past these two roads the campsite should be on the right side of the road (heading south) beside a creek that runs under Hwy 93.

N 46.331056
W 114.14682

(Look for flat level area that would hold 22 people in tents and corral 50 horses). Could have been a lunch stop, but those were not documented in their journals. The site above was more than likely a campsite. Erosion frequently changed this area of the trail/river. Clark & party were headed to dig up cached supplies/tools south of Dillon (Camp Fortunate).
