Description A narrow, primitive road winding through the forest reaching ridgetops, the corridor affords visitors panaoramic views of the Bitterroot Range to the east, the Crags in the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness to the south, a sea of timbered slopes beyond which lies the Camas Prairie and the Seven Devils Mountains to the west and the St. Joe Divide to the north. The Lolo Trail is an ancient Indian route that follows the ridgetops parallel and to the north of Highway 12. This trail provided access to buffalo on the eastern plains for those on the Columbia Plateau, and led people living east of the mountains to salmon-rich waters in the west. The Trail Treads and National Historic Trails within the Lolo Trail Corridor are managed and maintained in a variety of ways for a variety of purposes related to recreation, historical preservation, and cultural significance. The Clearwater National Forest is responsible for the day-to-day management of the Lolo Trail National Historic Landmark, and the Department of the Interior (through the National Park Service) has oversight responsibility. The Clearwater consults with and works closely with the Nez Perce National Historical Park. The Clearwater and the National Park Service jointly participate in the monitoring program. The evolution of the trails on the Clearwater National Forest -and their management- are marked by eras of contrasting uses and different users.
