Experience The Solar Eclipse Along Lewis And Clark National Historic Trail

While many of the units of the National Park System that are in the path of this month's solar eclipse will find visitors practically elbow-to-elbow, those who head to the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail will have plenty of room to watch the astronomical event. That's because all sites along the 3,700-mile trail will experience a partial eclipse and many sites in Missouri and Illinois will see a total eclipse. No matter where you visit along the trail, you're likely to be treated to an excellent viewing experience.
