About The Event

We'll meet at Powell Campground by the Lochsa Lodge on US 12. You can make it an adventure just getting there. Then we'll travel to the start of the Lolo Motorway. The Lolo Motorway was built by the CCC in the 1930's and was a regular route for the Nez Perce Indians traveling to buffalo hunting in Montana. Lewis and Clark took this route too. It's 130 miles of remote ridge top driving in Clearwater National Forest. Optional side trips to USFS lookouts. It's also part of the ID BDR. We'll camp somewhere along the Motorway.  Elk River and Clarkia have a rich pioneer history in mining and logging and the route travels old wagon roads (now USFS roads). Visit the Marble Creek Historical Site. We'll disperse camp somewhere along Marble Creek. Moon Pass was part of logging railroad that serviced the area. It is now a road complete with trestles and tunnels. If you're into bicycling you can do a side trip and ride the Hiawatha including a 12 mile tunnel to Montana and catch a shuttle back. Finally we'll travel through the Big Burn of 1910 to Wallace, ID. The trip ends in Wallace where you can easily travel I-90 back or continue your adventure. 

Note! I have not traveled the full route before only some portions so it'll be an adventure for all of us. I've researched the route heavily and have maps for the whole route.
