Lake Coeur d’Alene Scenic Byway

Lake Coeur d’Alene Scenic Byway traverses an area where the lakes, mountains, and beautiful summer weather have made it one of the most famous summer playgrounds and resort destinations in the Pacific Northwest. It’s also home to a variety of wildlife, including moose, deer, elk, bear and several bird species.

The byway begins at the junction of Interstate 90 and Idaho 97 and follows Idaho 97 south and east along Lake Coeur d’Alene to Idaho 3. Take your time to explore along this two-lane, paved winding road.

Great for year-round visits, even in December and January when the eagles congregate between Wolf Lodge Bay and Beauty Bay. Wildlife is diverse throughout the year, and Lake Coeur d’Alene is home to the largest population of nesting osprey in the Western states. Summer attractions include camping, boating, water sports, cycling, bird watching, and fishing. During the fall you can enjoy the leaves changing colors along the lake.

Allow 1 1/2 hours for this 36-mile drive. You’ll want more time to explore the outdoors and a mid-way stop at the town of Harrison for huckleberry ice cream and a dose of Idaho history. Take a break and stretch your legs on the Mineral Ridge Trail, which offers panoramic views of the lake, as well as several learning stations describing the area’s botany and animal life.

At Idaho 3, the byway meets up with the White Pine Scenic Byway.

Palouse Scenic Byway

Ramble all day on this 208-mile scenic drive that criss-crosses southeastern Washington. Of all byways in the Two Degrees NW region, this is the longest because its network of roads cross each other.

Rolling hills abundant with wheat, pea, lentil, mustard seed and canola crops paint this land in shifting colors each season (early to mid summer is best for bright yellows and deep greens). The Palouse’s hilly farmlands (drive backroads linking Rosalia, Oaksdale, Palouse, Colfax or Tekoa) and channeled scablands (east on 26) were all carved some 13,000 years ago when Lake Missoula glaciers dissolved into floods raging up to 20 miles wide and 600 feet deep! Whitman county activists won Washington scenic byway designation for these roads following Indian and wagon trails in 2003 and now aim for federal status.

St. Joe River Scenic Byway

St. Joe River Scenic Byway follows the course of the beautiful St. Joe River, the world’s highest navigable river. Enjoy picturesque mountain landscapes and watch for bald eagles and osprey overhead, and deer, moose, elk and bear along the river’s edge.

Between May and November (depending on snow) the byway extends another 42 miles of gravel road to the Idaho-Montana border. East along the St. Joe River, watch for bald eagles and osprey. At first deep and still, at St. Joe City, the river becomes shallower with more rapids. You’ll see (lr catch) Dolly Vardins, rainbow, cutthroat and other species of trout.

Allow 2 1/2 to 3 hours, one way, for this drive along a two-lane road with numerous pullouts and points of interest. Full services available in St. Maries and Avery; partial services in Calder.

White Pine Scenic Byway

From Cataldo Mission, Idaho’s oldest standing building, to the picturesque town of St. Maries and Potlatch, the 83 miles of the White Pine Scenic Byway passes lush forests, farm land, mountains, lakes and marshlands to the St. Maries and St. Joe rivers. The largest stand of white pine in the country lies along Idaho 6 in the St. Joe National Forest. And Potlatch was once site of the largest white pine lumber mill in the world.

Allow two hours for this 83 mile drive, plus time to wet a fishing line, take a hike, strap on cross-country skis, or explore the towns along the way. Begin at the junction of Interstate 90 and Idaho 3, south on Idaho 3 to Idaho 6, then southwest to U.S. 95 at Potlatch.

The White Pine Byway (Idaho 3) runs through the St. Joe National Forest and the entrance to the St. Joe Scenic Byway, intersecting with the Lake Coeur d’Alene Scenic Byway (Idaho 97). Then follows along the Coeur d’Alene River until it intersects with Interstate 90.

Full services in St. Maries.

Perkins House

James Allen Perkins came to the area in 1870, when he was 29 years old. He and Thomas Smith traveled from Waitsburg to set up a sawmill at the suggestion of Anderson Cox, who speculated that the valley along the South Fork of the Palouse might make a fine location for a new settlement. They proceeded to build a log cabin with timber hauled from Walla Walla. Both Smith and Perkins staked out property. The two men split the valley, Perkins taking the northern part. He purchased a pre-emption on 160 acres at $2.50/acre. The line separating the two parcels ran east to west and later became Last Street.

Open Saturdays + Sundays 10am – 2pm, may be rented for special events

It is a fully paved, 10-foot wide trail intended for use by pedestrians, bicyclists, in-line skaters, wheel-chair operators, cross-country skiers and others with non-motorized transportation. In August 2009, Latah County acquired ownership of the old rail bed continuing 4 miles southeast of Troy. This next section of trail is currently an unimproved gravel/rock pathway that follows Bear Creek. When this is paved, it will provide an unbroken, 30 mile path from Pullman to Juliaetta.

First Indian Presbyterian Church

Located on the first Kamiah town site in East Kamiah, the Rev. and Mrs. Henry T. Cowley organized the First Church on December 25, 1871, with Hol-Lol-Sote-Tote (Lawyer) as the first Elder. In the summer of 1873, the government built the present church. The Rev. Henry Spalding spent 1872 and 1873 doing church work here during the construction. Sue McBeth had charge of the Presbyterian Mission at the time that the First Church was built. Her sister Kate McBeth joined her in 1879. The church and cemetery is still in use today and stand in quiet dignity at the original location on Highway 12.

Bovill Opera House

Believed to have been built in the first decade of the 20th century, the Bovill Opera House served for five decades as the entertainment and social center for the town of Bovill and its surrounding communities. Although used primarily as a “moving picture hall,” the Bovill Opera House hosted dances, performances, as well as public hearings and gatherings. In the 1930s the upstairs was transformed into a miniature golf course and later used as a roller skating-rink. While there is a metal sign readings “Bovill Historical Museum” it was apparently never used as a museum on a consistent basis. The building is no longer open to the public.
