Grand Pass Conservation Area
U.S. Hwy 65 to Route N in Saline County Missouri River

The Lewis and Clark expedition reached the Grand Pass area aroun June 15. The river was rising so quickly and the current was moving with such force that the men had to pull the keelboat through the more difficult stretches with tow ropes.
