Highway 21 is found on the east end of Boise. Take I-84 east to the Gowen exit and head north. Gowen turns into Hwy 21. Hwy 21 goes all the way to Lowman. No other roads once you get off the freeway. Enjoy it is a great ride!
Gorgeous drive. After passing Lucky Peak Reservoir past the rolling hills and into the mountains. Cool stops along the way overlooking canyons, reservoirs and valleys. A big part of the fun of this ride was all the wildlife that we saw, deer, elk, turkey, fox, and coyote. However there is an inherent danger in that as well. Keep your eyes peeled and enjoy.
Lots of turns and hills. The highway itself is kept in great shape by the highway department however, be careful of rocks that slide down on the highway and wildlife.
Great camping and lodging along the way. We found a cool little coffee shack, Muley's Mountain Coffee around mile marker 24, that was a nice place to hang out and there were quite a few other bikes there when we stopped as well. Idaho City is about 40 miles into the ride and there are several places to eat and drink there as well as places to stay. We stayed at the old South Fork Lodge in Lowman. It is now called the Foxes Den. Very cool spot!
