This section is rich with historical locations, an option, an alternate and a spur. You can easily pedal more than the cover value of 470.1 miles if you choose Section 5 of the Lewis & Clark Bicycle Trail. At Three Forks, the Missouri River splits into the Gallatin, Madison and Jefferson rivers, and you will leave the Missouri for the final time. Just south of Dillon, there's a choice to remain on the main westbound route or take the Big Hole Option. The main route over Lehmi Pass includes 24.5 miles of gravel while the 87.2-mile Big Hole Option is slightly shorter and is entirely paved. An additional Continental Divide crossing may be made via the 15.5-mile gravel Gibbon's Pass Alternate. From North Fork, Idaho, on the main route, you have the opportunity to ride along "The River of No Return" on the 18.2-mile Shoup Spur. From North Fork, it is nearly a straight shot north to Lolo, Montana, the site of Travelers' Rest State Park. This is the site where Lewis and Clark stopped in each direction to rest and regroup for the next stages in their journey.

I really appreciate the time in which I received the map. I'll be checking out the details of the map this coming May and will add anything that might have been missed.

We were pleased with both the map and quickness in which it was received. The map is well organized and easy to read. We are looking forward to using it on our trip to Montana this summer.

It would be helpful if the match lines shown on the route maps were associated with a geographical feature, roadway intersection, milepost marker or some other object that is easy to identify while riding. This would ensure an accurate ?reset? of one?s bike odometer when transitioning from one section to another.
