Lewis and Clark Monument trails (known locally as L&C) crisscross along a bluff on the edge of Loess Hills. Hills being the dominant feature, this trail system will test lungs and legs. Either you’ll be going up or going down. The start will be at the bottom of Monument Road with racers doing looped laps that will keep them in the trees.
Race loop is approximately 5 miles. Level: Moderate to difficult
Lewis & Clark Monument extends to the edge of a bluff where you can see the Missouri River just as the famed explorers did so long ago. Omaha’s skyline can also be seen in full view. There are modern bathrooms and running water during the spring and summer seasons. The park hours are 6 a.m. – 10 p.m. year round. The park is monitored by a local city employee who resides in the house at the entrance.
Because this is a public attraction, parking at the monument is prohibited except for race organizers. Racers can park on the road on the north side of the main entrance. Please do not park in any of the private drive ways.
Take I-29 to the north side of Council Bluffs. Take the north 25th St exit. Go south to lighted intersection. Take left on Nash Blvd and head east across HWY 92. Road changes to Big Lake Rd. Follow it under a low train bridge (take note: be sure you can drive under it if you have bikes on top of your car). Follow road around Big Lake and go under second train bridge. At the intersection turn left onto N. 8th St, which will turn into Mynster Springs Rd. Take the next left on Monument Road. Park entrance will be at the top. Parking is not allowed in the park, except for race organizers.
