About The Sula Ranger District administers the southeast portion of the Bitterroot National Forest which also includes the Anaconda-Pintler Wilderness. The many miles of trails on the Sula Ranger District provide opportunities ranging from short day-trips to extended back-country trips. The Lewis and Clark expedition entered what is now the Bitterroot National Forest on September 4, 1805, taking a very difficult route to the west of what is now Lost Trail Pass. The precise trail is unknown but we know the rugged mountains, bad weather, and hunger were challenges the Corps of Discovery faced. The trail through Lost Trail is one of the most disputed areas of their trip through the mountains. The area, north of the Sula Ranger Station, is now called Ross' Hole. This is where the famous Charles Russell painting Lewis and Clark Meeting the Indians at Ross' Hole was painted. Here they met a village of the Salish nation including 33 lodges, and about 440 people and 500 horses. Lewis and Clark purchased 13 more horses from the Salish. On Sept. 6, they continued the journey, traveling northwest out of Ross' Hole.
