Map: USGS Eastport
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.
FST-211, Moyie River road. FS-211 is accessed from US-2, 10 miles fro Bonners Ferry. Turn north off US-2 o the first road west of the Moyie River bridge. This good gravel road runs north along the river for 20 miles to a junction with US-95 just south of the Canadian Border.
