Driving the Lolo Trail along Rt 12 is just gorgeous. My wife and I took a day trip out of Missoula to get some idea what and where Louis and Clark had to transverse by going over this pass.
Stop at the Lolo Visitors Center. We can across a wonderful Ranger who gave us a little history lesson on the expedition of Louis and Clark. There is a wonderful stop just around the corner from the visitors center that gives one an idea of what the Louis and Clark group had to transverse. Another must is to stop at the Lochsa Rest Stop wilth Restaurant in Powell, ID; a great place to stay overnight.
