Written Directions

The road leaves Freedom Wyoming on Hwy 34 and take this over the Idaho border and down to Soda Springs, ID. From there take US Hwy 30 east to Montpelier and then switch to US Hwy 89 back heading east and later turning north and taking you back up to Freedom, Wy ... or you could continue on to Jackson Hole if you wanted to see that.

Scenery

This route makes a near perfect loop through and around the southern half of the Caribou National Forest. It starts and stops in far southwestern Wyoming but spends the vast majority of its miles looping through beautiful southeastern Idaho. It offers a great diversity of scenery that will have you driving through beautiful rugged mountain ranges, some wide-open spaced cattle country, untouched open fields, and even sections of desert expanse.

Drive Enjoyment

If you're looking for a road less traveled, you've found one here! It has a few nice straight-aways twists and turns, ups and downs ... a little bit of everything.

Tourism Opportunities

There really aren't many amenities on this motorcycle trip except for the gas stations in the small towns you will pass through with a few restaurants so you really will need to watch your gas. The small towns do have great charm though. Overall this isn't a motorcycle ride you'll be taking in order to increase your antique or craft collections ... you take this ride to see beautiful rugged southeastern Idaho scenery while traveling on open roads.

We ride this route when we go to Jackson Hole Wyoming for the weekend. Nice ride and this area has several other good routes.lunch in soda springs usully then back to Jackson. the road to Freedom Wy. is fun with lots of hills and curves but it is open range so watch for cows on the road.

A nice day ride -- I've ridden this route many times and think its one of the best in terms of scenery. Bear Lake is not far from Montpelier - another beautiful location.
