Lolo Trail

Search Lolo Trail Idaho
Winding through forest then reaching ridge tops, the Lolo Trail corridor in the Nez Perce National Forest affords visitors panoramic views of the Bitterroot Range to the east, the Crags in the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness Area to the south, the Seven Devils Mountains to the west and the St Joe Divide to the north.

A narrow road built by the CCC in the 1930s provides access. For generations the corridor across the est-west ridge in the Bitterroots was a travel and trade route between the Columbia River Basin and the Northern Plains. Used first by Indians, the trail was later followed by Lewis & Clark in 1805 and 1806 and by the Nez Perce Indians as an escape route to Montana in the War of 1877.
