Lemhi Pass is a high mountain pass in the Beaverhead Mountains, part of the Bitterroot Range in the Rocky Mountains and within Salmon-Challis National Forest. The pass lies on the Montana-Idaho border on the continental divide, at an elevation of 7,373 feet (2,247 m) above sea level. It is accessed via Lemhi Pass Road in Montana, and the Lewis and Clark Highway in Idaho, both dirt roads. Warm Springs Road, which roughly follows the divide in Montana, passes just west of the pass's high point.A visit to Lemhi Pass represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Dillon road trip planning site to plot your vacation.
Lemhi Pass reviews
This is a beautiful drive in a part of Montana that most people do not get to. It is remote and don't expect any services, but the road is good and the scenery spectacular. more »
Super view of the area and a nice road to travel, but if you are travelling throughout Montana like we did you will experience many super views. more »
It’s a steady introduction to much bigger things. Pleasant enough but your not going to be blown away.... if it’s a diversion in your plans, don’t do it. Unless your a Lewis and Clark fan.
Always a great experience. However I think that a sign should be placed at the bottom of the mountain on 028 telling people not to use it to go up or down, when driving a camper. It does tell you at the top. A sign is NEEDED.
