Lewis and Clark Trail information

I will be riding west from Minneapolis in September through ND, MT, ID, WA & OR on my 1999 Concours. How much of the trail is accessible with a street bike? I grew up riding dirt bikes and on gravel roads so gravel doesn't bother me, but I'm not taking it on any single track!

Hard to explain but based on your planned states you could get close to much of the trail and museums but from paved roads you would have to do quite a bit of hiking to get down to actual campsites and the “Trail”. From ND to northern Montana you are following the Missouri River and to really see the Trail there are some “dirt roads”. Many of the museums (Lewis and Clark Intrepretive Centers) are on pavement, 10 -> 20 miles from the actual L & C Trail. Campsites are normally 10 to 12 miles apart and each site is probably 1 to ˝ mile from paved roads.

Best part of the trail for me is from Fort Benton, MT, Great Falls, Whitehall, Dillon, Lemhi Pass, North Fork of the Salmon (Idaho), and especially from Weippi, Id all the way to Astoria, and Camp Disapointment (Columbia River) in Washington. The above route may look like 2,500 miles one way but would be more like 6,000 (1 way) by the time you criss-cross all the back roads to get to the Missouri & Columbia Rivers, etc. There must be 100 L & Clark Museums, centers, etc on the trail to keep you entertained.

Good luck….my first route was mostly on asphalt until I converted to a DS bike.

This link shows roughly 200 of the 573 campsite, many are accessible with a car.
