Long Description:

Lolo Trail Crossing

When Lewis and Clark came up this ridge, June 29, 1806, they ran into "a shower of rain, with hail, thunder and lightning, that lasted about an hour."  But they got out of deep Lolo Trail snow after they reached Rocky Point (directly across from here) and descended to Crooked Fork, below this turnout.  Thy reported that then they "ascended a very steep acclivity of a mountain about 2 Miles"  crossing this highway here to reach their old trail to Lolo Pass. ~ text of marker #334
