Where can I go Snowshoeing?
Just up the hill from Lolo Hot Springs, there are many options for snowshoeing along Lolo Pass. Park at the summit and follow one of the snow covered roads. You can literally choose your own adventure up here. Or, visit Snowshoe Falls by parking near the turnout at mile marker 5 and follow the creek to the falls.
