History of Lolo Hot Springs

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Lewis and Clark expedition is known to have stopped at these pools along their journey in 1805 and again in 1806, but they were in use long before that.

These waters were an ancient meeting site and bathing spot for Indian tribes for hundreds of years. And even before that, it was a natural mineral lick for the wildlife that still hangs around the area. The Lewis and Clark expedition simply gave Lolo Hot Springs more prestige, and by the late 1800s, the pools were a rendezvous spot for all kinds of explorers, prospectors and trappers. 

As time went on, traveler's from all walks of life came to check out Lolo Hot Springs. And then Missoula's Norman Maclean wrote the semi-autobiographical book "A River Runs Through It", which turned into an all-time classic and movie featuring Brad Pitt.

Lolo Hot Springs is weathered by the passage of time, giving each visitor a raw adventure.
