Written Directions

Take Exit 22 from Idaho's Interstate 90 (I-90). This is about 7 miles east of Coeur d'Alene, ID.Head southbound, staying on Idaho Hwy 97 for 30 miles. This route ends in Harrison, ID.


Absolutely beautiful views across Lake Coeur d'Alene and the surrounding mountains/hills! Lots of trees provide shade and there are many opportunities to stop for excellent photos and quiet relaxation.

Drive Enjoyment

Plenty of curves ranging from tight to sweeping. The road is quite smooth as it has been repaved in recent years. Be cautious in late fall and early spring as shaded corners can hide slick spots and possible sand from winter ice or plowing.

Tourism Opportunities

Not many facilities along the route though Harrison provides a beautiful little town with gas, food, lodging, and a beautiful park with lakeside beach access.

Beautiful cool morning ride. Construction forced us onto different roads but all were paved and in good shape.
