Old Spiral Highway

(7 miles)

Just north of Idaho's Clearwater River is a short but wild motorcycle road called Old Spiral Highway, which lives up to its name. This route "spirals" through 64 curves in 7 miles at about 2,000ft of elevation from Lewiston, Idaho, to Highway 95 near the Wyonming border. Enjoy the great vistas as you carefully navigate these tight hairpin turns.

St Joe River Road

(88 miles)

Explore one of Idaho's best motorcycle roads along the St Joe River's edge​. Tight turns, big sweeping curves will make this a glorious backwoods adventure. Although there is about 12 miles of gravel road in Montana, the pavement is good in Idaho, and the scenery is fantastic. There are lots of blind corners, but fortunately you'll find very little traffic on this truly great motorcycle road.
