Get out and go. Southwest Idaho’s scenic byways (both official and unofficial) make for unforgettable road trips. Most Southwest Idaho road trips can be comfortably completed in a day or easily extended to a multi-day tour.
WHEN TO GO
Spring, summer, and fall are the classic road trip seasons, though sunny winter days — assuming road conditions are safe — can provide unparalleled snowy views.
