Re: “Lolo Pass and Crystal Amphitheatre

well, funny you should ask... haha. i'm new in town myself and just found this through a friend. to get to Lolo National Forest, leave Missoula on Brooks St, turn R onto the Lewis & Clark Hwy 12, travel about 35 minutes and start looking for pull-outs on the right. there should be some with easy-to-spot skin tracks (mostly within 1-2 miles of the Idaho border).

there is also a facebook page called "UM Backcountry Club" that also has regular trips and folks to meet up with -- that's worth a look as well.
