Lewis and Clark National Historical Park is encouraging visitors to use the park’s trails during the holiday season.

Lewis and Clark National Historical Park is offering a chance to get outdoors and enjoy virtual activities.

Spend some time learning about the Corps of Discovery’s winter at Fort Clatsop by hiking the park’s trails and visit the Fort Clatsop replica, open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The visitor center is closed due to the extreme risk level for the coronavirus in Clatsop County.

The park includes the Fort to Sea Trail, visitor center, fort, Netul Trail, the Salt Works site near the Promenade in Seaside and the Middle Village/Station Camp site east of Fort Columbia State Park as well as the Dismal Nitch Rest Area east of the Astoria Bridge in Washington state.

Plan for weather, slippery trails and shorter days. Restrooms are available at Netul Landing. Visitors are encouraged to bring water, follow social distancing guidelines and wear a mask. Dogs on leashes are welcome. An audio tour of the park can be experienced by dialing 503-207-2240.

Visit Lewis and Clark National Historical Park on Facebook, Instagram and on YouTube for special virtual activities.
