Lewis and Clark
Across the Mountains
Self Discovery Experience
on the Lolo Trail
How can the experience of 1805 be recreated in 2005? The answer is the self discovery experience on the Lolo Trail!
If you want to experience the journey, as did Lewis and Clark, by bushwacking through miles of brush and timber downfall to find isolated springs, streams, trail tread, and campsites - the Lolo Trail still offers that experience.
Many segments of the erosion trace of the Nez Perce trail followed by Lewis and Clark can still be found on the ridges and alongside the creeks of the Lolo Trail. Although the tread is now obscured by brush, grass, and windfalls, it can still be located and is quite deep in some locations. Imagine finded a segment of the actual trail followed by Lewis and Clark and then walking in their actual footsteps.
With the proper equipment and map resources, you will be able to have the experience.
