Today we have a recommendation for our “Things To Do” section of the blog from a past visitor here at the inn. Two guests took a short drive to the Nez Perce National Historical Park and Visitor Center and here’s what they had to say….
For a change of venue from all the wonderful nature surrounding The High Country Inn, plan a visit to Nez Perce National Historical Park and Visitor Center. If you are interested in Native American history, you are surrounded by it here.

It is a 30 – 40 minute drive west on Route 12 along the Clearwater River to South Route 95. Then watch for the signs for the Nez Perce park and visitor center. The Nez Perce people lived in the area and have left many historic sites. Start with the Visitor Center. It contains a lot of history about the Nez Perce including many artifacts and should raise your curiosity to learn more about the area’s Native American people. You can walk around the park to see a number of other places of interest. See www.nps.gov/nepe for all the points of interest in the Nez Perce National Historical Park. Then throw in a little Lewis and Clark exploration, and you can spend a day or more watching history unfold before your eyes.
Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
