This is a very scenic and interesting drive. You will see wildlife, lakes and some higher traffic areas. Deer Park can be very congested at certain times of the day. For the most part, the road is very well maintained in the winter. Enjoy your...More

Highway 395 is our go to choice when traveling from SoCal to Eastern Oregon and points between. Less truck traffic than the 5, mostly 4 lanes so you can make good time and vistas that are unavailable along the major north-south freeway. You can stop...More

This might have been rated higher but I had just finished trips from the PCH and the 101 and you can’ really beat that. It was okay, there were no major obstacles, but it is just a road and one we needed to take.

Spend the morning just driving north from Spokane, WA to see what on the route. Better than typical highway with snow mountain view and multiple lakes, large area of forest. However, it's still a Highway Route, not something worth planing to experience.

I drove this because it was necessary for my trip. It may be historic, but there is nothing that special to see. If you want historic roads, go to Rt 66 or the Lincoln Highway.

cant really rate it much higher than 3 stars, as its a road. i guess its a good road, its clean and it doesnt cause no problems, not sure how it would get more stars from me though.

Having traveled much of 395 in California, I couldn't resist taking this northernmost stretch from Spokane to British Columbia. It requires patience nearer to Spokane as you're passing right through the heart of these little towns with their attendant traffic and speed controls, but this...More
