Exploring the Lewis and Clark Trail

The Lewis and Clark Expedition came through these parts, and retracing their foot steps on the Lewis and Clark Trail is a great activity while you are staying at our Missoula MT bed and breakfast. Drive US Highway 12 from Missoula to Lewiston, which follows the original trail taken by the expedition. There are many signposts that tell the story of the explorers along the way. You will learn that Colt Killed Creek is so named because it is where members of the expedition were forced to kill a colt in order to survive. Fortunately, you can ask the innkeepers at your blue mountain bed and breakfast for a picnic basket, which you can fill in town.

Lolo Pass, one of the most treacherous mountain crossings in the whole of the Lewis and Clark Expedition, is also the site of intersecting Indian Trails. The travelers in 1805 and 1806 were happy to soak in the Lolo Hot Springs, just as you will be today. You may also enjoy wandering through the DeVoto Cedar Grove, where the Lewis and Clark journals were first edited by Bernard DeVoto.

The scenery along the Lewis and Clark Trail is breathtaking at this time of year. We welcome you at our Missoula Bed and Breakfast, where we think you will be considerably more comfortable than were those early, brave explorers.
