Cheer on Missoula’s Local Charities: A Tribute to Travelers’ Rest State Park!

You won’t want to miss the festivities at Travelers’ Rest State Park in Lolo!  There is always something of interest for everyone young and old.  Enjoy a quiet stroll along Lolo Creek, a picnic lunch or attend one of the many special events that take place year round.  Come stay the night at Blue Mountain Bed and Breakfast so we can continue to support Travelers’ Rest.  Let us  know if you are attending a special fundraiser like the one below so we can give you a discount as well as donating a portion of your stay to help preserve Montana’s legacy. 

*Welcome in the month of August by helping out a worthy cause while you treat yourself to a delicious BBQ meal.  The forest birds will most certainly serenade you during dinner and then afterward you are in for another musical treat!  At 8:00 pm, The New Big Sky Singers featuring Rob Quist, Don Collins, Don MacDonald and Blue Mountain B&B’s personal family friend, Gary Funk will entertain you!

What a great way to spend the evening and help the park raise enough money to acquire 24 additional acres of beautiful land.  For details regarding the Park’s expansion, you can visit Travelers’ Rest expansion web page.

If you can’t make this date, then plan a future date to enjoy Travelers’ Rest.  During the summer there are weekly hands-on programs for kids and during the winter months the whole family can enjoy the story telling series.  You can also take a self-guided tour along the creek and trail while learning about Lewis and Clark, Native American and Natural history through the many interpretive signs.  Personally guided tours by park staff are also given.  Don’t miss the indoor museum and gift shop as well!

Details:  Travelers’ Rest was used by Native People, fur trappers and other travelers for hundreds of years.  Archeological evidence confirms that this park was indeed a stop-over point for Lewis and Clark during their 4,000 mile journey.  They rested here in 1805 on their way to The Pacific Ocean and then again in 1806 on their return trip.  Travelers’ Rest State Park is now one of the few officially recognized sites that can actually be pinpointed with accuracy along the Lewis and Clark Trail.

Summer Hours: 8:00 am to 8:00 pm daily       Winter Hours: 8:00 am to 5:00 pm Monday through Saturday

Enjoy the past in the present!
