Lolo Peak guards the northern limits of the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness just 15 miles southwest of Missoula. This non-technical summit —the northernmost of the 9,000-foot Bitterroot peaks—provides a fine vantage for outdoor enthusiasts beginning in early July each summer. Yet one should not dismiss the mountain’s wild character because of its heavy use and proximity to a major population center, for beyond the peak lies the most extensive wilderness complex in the contiguous United States— 4 million acres of primeval wildlands known collectively as the Greater Salmon–Selway ecosystem. Highlights: Attractive high-elevation scenery and a northeast view of Missoula.
