We took a 2 week trip to Colorado, Wyoming, Montana and Idaho via motorcycles. This was the most amazing road we were on. Such beautiful scenery! Nice sweeping curves and the pavement was smooth. Definitely want to ride it again and again!

Without a doubt this is one of the most beautiful drives I've taken. We started at Lolo, MT and finished up in Kamiah, ID. My husband loves to fish so we stopped many times for him to do so while I sat in the sun...More

Beautiful drive, trees and rivers, streams. October and after, through May, be cautious of road conditions. They can change in a matter of hours.... The drive is very picturesque.....

Very senic highway from Lolo, MT to Kooskia, ID. Travels alongside the Lochsa River. The landscape is spectacular. You will be traveling in the mountains There are numerous hiking trails starting from Highway 12 leading off into the mountains.

This is a scenic highway, really beautiful. Make sure you have a full tank of gas and full stomach before starting because there are very few options on the way. We stopped at the Lochsa Lodge for lunch and there was a small gas station.

Beautiful ride along Hwy 12 through Lolo Pass. Long ways between any kind of services. More of a forest road through lush country, but a beautiful ride. Lots of pullovers, history boards to read about Lewis and Clark's expedition, and hiking trails. We met one...More
