Washburn Discovery Trail Description

The Washburn Discovery Trail is part of the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail and begins at North Dakota's Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center. From there, the paved pathway heads toward the Missouri River and winds along its tree-lined bank, ending at Riverside Park, where you'll find the historical Sioux Ferry, once a stop for riverboats traveling from St. Louis, Missouri.

On its eastern end, a short portion of the trail parallels an active railroad, a scenario known as rail-with-trail, hence its rail-trail designation.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available at the Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center (2576 8th St. SW, Washburn).
