A Visit to Lolo Pass

The next time you stay at our Missoula Bed and Breakfast, we hope you’ll have time to visit Lolo Pass. This ancient trail along the crest of the Bitterrroot Mountains has been traveled for hundreds of years. The Nez Pierce and the Salish used it to travel to hunting and fishing grounds. Lewis and Clark followed the trail on their way to the Pacific. Today, many hikers walk it to experience the beauty of the Bitterroot Mountains.

Hiking, snowshoeing, skiing, and even scenic drives can create a strong appetite. Not far from Lolo Pass is the Lumberjack Saloon, a place that has been serving great food, drinks, and music for more than 30 years. The saloon is built from enormous logs, and is located on a beautiful piece of ground. It’s a great spot to refresh oneself after a day on the trails around Lolo.

It’s also a fun place to listen to music. This month, see the Country Boogie Boys on April 14, Blue Collar on April 21, and Sho Down on April 28. The line-up for next month isn’t yet posted, but there will surely be live music every Saturday night at 9 p.m. There is also sure to be a bonfire.

Of course, you could just return to our Missoula Bed and Breakfast and curl up with a cup of cocoa or a glass of wine. If you’re in the mood for live music, turn on the old player piano or see if Elaine will pull out her guitar.
