This spirited ride refers to the start/end point of a popular watering hole called the Lumberjack Saloon. This loop includes some fun ridgetop riding, with views into large, heavily-timbered drainages. The hill climbs are moderate; plan on three hours of riding for a rider of average cycling ability. From Highway 12 out of Lolo turn at mile marker 16, Graves Creek or from Interstate 90 take Petty Creek Exit and go over the hill to the Lumberjack Saloon. Don't forget your swim suit, Lolo Hot Springs is just up the road.
