This is a list of gear I will be using while hiking and kayaking the Lewis and Clark Trail. Some figures might be slightly off. If you see any egregious errors please let me know. I’ve divided this into two parts: the hiking segments, from the Mississippi to Yankton, SD, and from Three Forks, MT to Orofino, Idaho. The second gear list will be for the kayaking sections which make up the remainder of the route from the Mississippi to the Pacific.
