Statewide Byway Partners
This scenic drive follows the Kootenai River from the intersection of Highway 37 and Forest Development Road (FDR) 228, ending at the Montana/Idaho border. Libby Dam regulates the water supply from the 90-mile-long Lake Koocanusa into this river making it a great habitat for wildlife viewing- eagles, osprey, deer, mountain sheep, and migratory ducks and geese. The Kootenai River offers opportunities for trout fishermen. Kootenai Falls has a picnic area, viewpoint, and access to a swinging bridge that crosses the river. Osprey Landing and Libby Riverside Park each have a boat ramp.
