September 9th, 1805. "...we halted at a large stream which empties itself on the west side of the river. This is a fine bold creek of clear water, about 20 yards wide, which we called Traveler's-rest creek; for, as our guide told us that we should here leave the river, we determined to remain for the purpose of making celestial observations and collecting some food, as the country through which we are to pass has no game for a great distance." Captain Meriwether Lewis
Lewis & Clark camped at Travelers' Rest twice on their journey. The area was used for centuries before them as a stopping point by Native Americans. In addition to it's fresh water, the area has an abundance of animals and plants. This cache will take you to 4 different points on a self guided path at the park. By answering questions based on Signs and Plaques, and a little math, you will find this cache! We ask that you stay on the trail until the final search, and that you be very discrete in your search. If you see a social trail forming, try to avoid using that same path.
