Lewis and Clark Monument and Scenic Overlook
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 28, 2012

The trails are wonderful, and not too difficult for children or elderly. Everyone has always been nice and the presence of gang activity is nonexistant. (Which is what really helps me decide to come back or not)

This is a nice, small monument dedicated to Lewis and Clark. The view if the Missouri River is great.

This is a nice look out to do after the Pedestrian Bridge photo op. It is nicely kept up. We only spent 15-20 minutes there but it was enough time for a picture and sneaking in some education to the kids.

It was a nice scenic drive to the monument scenic overlook. You see the airport and city from the overlook. There are benches to sit and overlook the city.

Located in an out of the way location on the north end of Council Bluffs, this small park has a beautiful view of Omaha, NE skyline and Eppley Airfield located just across the Missouri River. Historical markers tell the story about Lewis and Clarks journey up the Missouri River. Nice place to spend a few minutes enjoying the view or to have a picnic. Nice modern clean restrooms are near the parking area. There are numerous signs through out Council Bluffs to help direct you.
