This is one auto tour you will never forget. You’ll follow US Highway 12 along the Clearwater River Canyon, on to the Middle Fork of the Clearwater River and the Lochsa Wild and Scenic River, to the spectacular Bitterroot Mountains, and through the Nez Perce Clearwater National Forest.
This is the legendary route of Lewis and Clark on their way westward to the Pacific and their return trip back home, as well as the scenic and historic Nez Perce (Nee-Me-Poo) National Historic Trail. Starting at the Nez Perce National Historical Park near Spalding, Idaho and continuing east you’ll see the picturesque towns of Orofino, Kamiah, Kooskia, the Clearwater River and Nez Perce Clearwater National Forest, culminating at historic Lolo Pass and the Lolo Pass Visitor Center, a strategic mountain pass that helped shape the America we know today.
