For most of its length, the trail hugs the wooded bluffs Lewis and Clark followed up the river more than two centuries ago. Trail users today see much the same flora, fauna and natural landmarks the explorers described in their historic journals. The Steamboat Trace is resplendently scenic--especially in the fall, when the oaks, cottonwoods and other deciduous trees along the bluffs break out their autumn colors.
