Yup, it would be much better to tear up 100 year old piece of history and poor new concrete than to put up a sign.

It would be much better to not put up a sign at all and let people use their common sense.

No. It would be much better to pull up the stones, level the ground and then re-lay them.

Though the historical value of a sidewalk is debatable.

Ran that last month. Found it by accident. The fastest two hours of my life. Ran it on knobs. Love the Lochsa! No Hamsters allowed!

from what I've read, theres a pretty good elevation change right there and the loop was the easiest way to deal with it

Its OK.

But yous guys in the U.S. have much better than LoLo. Not as pretty but the road going from Eureka Montana to Yahk is far more fun. Also LoLo Motorway the dirt version is way cool.

Google Maps "Street View" will show you the elevation gain in a small area.
