Statement of Significance (as of designation - October 9, 1960):
On August 12, 1805, when he reached the summit of this pass, Meriwether Lewis stood on the boundary of newly-acquired Louisana, looking west to the snow-capped peaks of the Bitterroot and Salmon River Ranges, into what was then Spanish territory. Situated on a remote section of the Beaverhead Range, at an elevation of 7373' above sea level, Lehmi Pass was the point where the Lewis and Clark Expedition crossed the Continental Divide.

Condition:
It does not seem as though the ARPA vilolation has been completly resolved. Energy deveolopment and transport corridors have been mentioned in the area.
