Independence Creek Hiking/Biking Trail


This ten-mile hiking/biking trail connects downtown Atchison with Independence Creek and the historic area where the Lewis and Clark expedition camped on July 4, 1804. The trail head includes a recreated Kanza Indian lodge that is free to view. The Kanza lodge, trail and Lewis & Clark attractions on the Atchison Riverfront were named one of the 8 Wonders of Kansas History in 2010.
