Native American Petroglyphs

Rundown: Much of the Katy Trail overlaps with the same route Meriwether Lewis and William Clark traveled on their westward expedition. On June 5, 1804, Clark made an entry in his Corps of Discovery journal describing a “figue” on the rocks above the Missouri River. Four miles outside of Rocheport, those same rock carvings await visitors today just off mile marker 174.4. With a bit of patience, you should be able to spot them from across the river. They hover near a cave and above a rock ledge frequented by birds.
