Take a Hike!

The benefits and beauty of the Pacific Northwest are right outside your door.

At Lewis & Clark, you can’t escape the outdoors—and why would you want to? Our campus spans a ravine and is surrounded by trees, giving you ample space to explore and connect with nature on the walk between your residence hall and your classes.

Plus, College Outdoors will take you on adventures with new friends from different majors, dorms, activities, and backgrounds. There’s really no better way to build a community than through shared experiences on the rivers, deserts, mountains, and coasts that span the iconic Pacific Northwest.
