I recently drove Highway 12 as part of a trip from Oregon to Montana. I had a great time winding along the river and crossing the Rockies through on a beautiful road. Unfortunately, I was driving a pickup truck. I would opt for something more sporty next time. Be sure your car is reliable, because you'll be far away from towns and out of cell service. Anyway, this is a wonderful, long drive and would recommend it for anyone.

We have ridden this route no less than 25 times and just got back yesterday from another. The colors and curves and people make this a must do. Must stop at Lolo Hot Springs, good food, and Lowell or 3 Rivers, c-store and a rest with some of the nicest people anywhere. We always stop on one of the secluded turnouts along the route and chill for an hour or two. Very relaxing.

This is not a fast route. This is a beatiful drive! Gas up before you go. Take the time to stop at the ranger stations and historical places. Packed a picnic lunch to enjoy halfway.

This space could be completely filled with accolades. Waterfalls, slow, narrow windy roads, in some spots, through one of the most rugged mountain ranges in North America. This is not a road you should drive if you are in a hurry to get somewhere. Slow down ! ! Stay at the Lodge at Lolo Hot Springs. Relax......
