Lolo Pass Visitor Center
Runners will pass Packer Meadows, a historical site along the Nez Perce and Lewis and Clark trails.
The Mountain to Meadow race follows an out-and-back loop course that starts and finishes at the Lolo Pass Visitor Center, which lies just off Highway 12 and where a historical plaque marks the spot where Lewis & Clark and their expedition party crossed on their journey in 1805.
From there, runners follow a counter-clockwise loop that starts out along Road 5670 and heads gently downhill, and then turns onto Road 5671 between the first and second mile markers, after which point the course begins a gradual ascent all the way to the mile 5 marker.
Once runners pass the fifth mile marker, just after passing through the southernmost point in the race, they then get to enjoy a gradual descent over the next couple of miles.
Between the seventh and eighth mile markers, the course then meets up with Elk Meadows Road and begins heading uphill again, followed by two tight turns along the road through the mountains, and then a nice, gradual downhill over the last few miles in to the finish line back at the visitor center.
