Hells Canyon Loop.

This is a fairly long day ride but a favorite of many of our guests.


Bypass Clarkston and Lewistion

This route goes through Clarkston, WA and Lewiston, ID. Optionally, take the Spiral Highway alternative if you would like an old, twisty highway option. The views of the Snake River valley from the top of the Lewiston Grade are beautiful.

Joseph or Hells canyon Overlook and Back

For a shorter route, consider going out and back to Joseph, OR. Conversely, if you wish to lengthen the trip, going out and back to Hells Canyon Overlook is a scenic option.

USW95 from Grangeville

This is a few miles shorter along a much straighter road. Take US95 from Grangeville to Moscow as opposed to the return route through Kooskia and Orofino as shown..
