The Lee Creek Road connects the Lee Creek road connects Lee Creek to Lolo Pass. It starts as a paved road but soon turns to gravel. The first few miles are open to vehicles in the summer. An upper gate is closed year round and prevents vehicles from going to the pass. A lower get is closed in the winter and the road is popular for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.

At the pass continue straight on a lightly traveled road. After a right-hand switchback turn watch for a wide path on the left side. There are a couple of large rocks and cement pylons to prevent vehicles from passing though. Follow this path downhill to a road junction and the Packer Meadows area.
