The  NPNHT Brochure includes an overview of the Trail, a map and photos, sources for hard-copy maps, local information contacts for sites along the Trail, and a short list of additional sources of information on the Nez Perce and the Trail.

Auto Tours

Retrace the routes used by the Nez Perce Indians and U.S. military forces during the summer of 1877. With the cooperation of State Highway Departments and County Commissioners in the states of Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Wyoming, and Montana, over 1500 miles of Federal, state, and county roads have been designated as the Nez Perce National Historic Trail Auto Route. The route roughly parallels the course traveled by the Nez Perce bands during their historic 1877 flight beginning near Wallowa Lake, Oregon and ending at the Bear Paw Battlefield south of Chinook, Montana. The auto route consists of three-season, all weather roadways ranging from high-standard gravel segments to portions of Interstate 15 and 90. Nez Perce National Historic Trail signs have been erected along the primary auto route and two alternate segments.

Passport Stamp

Passport stamp with date and location

NPNHT Passport Stamps have been placed at visitor centers and partner locations along the Trail so you can memorialize your visits in the National Park Service Passport.

The Passport to Your National Parks was created to help visitors explore their National Parks and has become a popular way for people to document their travels. The program has expanded to include a number of USDA Forest Service locations, like the NPNHT. More information, including purchasing a Passport or retail opportunities, can be found at Many locations offering the stamps also offer passport sales.
