Trip advice needed for North Idaho, Far east Wash.

Jump to last reply

I know that the area mentioned is not well-travelled (which is why we are going there). Husband and I will be spending a week at a dude ranch on Flathead Lake, Montana in mid July. After the week we will have 4 nights and parts of 2 additional days before ending up in Missoula, Montana to fly home.

Looking on the web and in the AAA book we are trying to find things of interest as well as great scenery to occupy those 5 days. I have found the International Selkirk Loop, which is 280 miles and includes a trip into Canada. Great scenery, but would also like to do a 3-4 mile walk, not hike, in an interesting area. We would be leaving Flathead Lake and staying (maybe) in Sandpoint, or Bonners Ferry, Idaho.

Then, if we did this drive , there is a scenic drive that includes Coeur d'Alene (one night) then maybe to Lewiston (one night) with a side trip of 17 miles into Hell's Canyon National Recreation Area. Then return to Missoula to stay before flying home.

Now we know that this is too many miles to drive, so I am asking:which area to visit and what to see there, such as scenic hikes, historic parks, etc. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Margo
