Fodor's Review

Created to memorialize Lewis and Clark's explorations here in 1805–06, the 8-mile Discovery Trail traces the explorers' moccasin steps from Ilwaco to north Long Beach, overlooking sandy dunes and beachfront. Access the trail from the beach parking lots on Sid Snyder Drive or Bolstad Street in Long Beach. Parking is also available at the Beard's Hollow lot in Cape Disappointment State Park.
