On their return journey, Captain Lewis parted ways with Captain Clark at Travelers Rest to explore a shorter way back across the Continental Divide and to determine the northern boundary of the Louisiana Territory. With a party of 14 men and 17 horses they followed the Blackfoot River and a route their Nez Perce guides called the Cokahlarishkit trail over what is now called Lewis and Clark Pass. The pass is off Forest Service Road 293 about 10 miles from Highway 200.
