Should be on the list of most beautiful, scenic, fun drives in the US. Perfect 2 lane highway in excellent condition. This is the perfect drive between Missoula and Lewiston.

The write-ups were true. It's a pleasant way to spend a few hours in the scenic countryside with pullover stops for stream visits and picnics.

First, always gas up when you can. Minimal traffic the day I rode. Roadway in good condition, scenery is great with adequate pull offs for pictures.

One of those days where there was no traffic - rode the speed limit the entire route and saw scenery and nothing else. At lunch at Lochsa Inn - OMG so good - a must see.
