The area is beautiful and has a nice hiking trail. View from the top is wonderful!

Experience the journey of Lewis and Clark as they did over two hundred years ago. Literature about the history and ecosystem is available on site to guide you through the mixed grass prairie. The hike to the top is family friendly, but come prepared...you will be exposed to the elements as was the Expedition.

If you are close, make the detour and visit. You won't be disappointed. A great experience.

This is one of only two sites that we know exactly where L&C stood on their 1804 journey. The view is spectacular. The buffalo,elk and deer herds are missing but the prairie is still the expanse they marveled at.
The hill itself has been restored with native grasses and flowers and a nice nature trail has been added from the parking lot to the summit.
There is a restroom and water outlet. Dogs on leashes welcome. Vermillion is a nice town with great hotel accommodations and a variety of restaurants.
