Drive: Access by road to these mountains is good – perhaps too good. Primary approach is from US-2 in the south and US-95 and ID-1 along the range’s western edge. In addition, US-95 cuts across the range’s northwest corner, and the Moyie River Road and the Deer Creek Road (both major secondary roads) cut through central sections of the range from north to south.
US-95 From US-1 to Eastport. US-95 leaves its junction with US-1 14.7 miles north of Bonners Ferry and runs northeast to the Canadian border at Eastport in 16 miles.

About admin

I would like to think of myself as a full time traveler. I have been retired since 2006 and in that time have traveled every winter for four to seven months. The months that I am “home”, are often also spent on the road, hiking or kayaking.
I hope to present a website that describes my travel along with my hiking and sea kayaking experiences.
