Northwest Passage Scenic Byway

Follow 202 miles of the Lewis and Clark and Nez Perce National Historic Trails through the ancestral homeland of the Nez Perce people on this National Scenic Byway and All American Road—and Northern Rockies Top 10 Scenic Drive (see www.drivethetop10.com).

The drive takes travelers from Lewiston, Idaho, to Lolo Pass on U.S. Highway 12. At Kooskia the byway splits with one segment heading south on Idaho Highway 13 toward the Camas Prairie and the town of Grangeville. The other segment of this national treasure continues east on US 12 following the Middle Fork of the Clearwater River, and the Lochsa Wild and Scenic River, through a magnificent wilderness to the Lolo Pass Visitor Center where Idaho and Montana meet.

Allow four hours for this drive, but make sure to add time to take in the heritage sites, wildlife viewing, and river recreation along the way.
