St. Joe River Scenic Byway


Traveling along the St. Joe River, you will find towering cottonwoods and mountain landscapes home to deer, elk, moose, and bear. This is a two-lane paved road with numerous pullouts and points of interest. Stop at Falls Creek Falls, the Idaho Panhandle National Forest and the St. Joe Wild and Scenic River. Recreational opportunities vary from fishing, camping, hiking, and biking to canoeing and backpacking. The byway travels from St. Maries, taking Forest Service roads to Highway 50. and then to the Idaho-Montana border. Note: The Avery to Montana section is closed in the winter and used as a snowmobile route.
