White Pine Scenic Byway

With its large tracts of timberland and wilderness areas, its not hard to believe that Idaho holds the largest stand of white pines in the nation. The pine forest lends its name to the White Pine Scenic Byway, found just to the south of Interstate 90. Following State Routes 3 and 6, the byway passes by the lower Coeur d'Alene, St. Joe and St. Maries rivers. In Cataloo, the Old Mission of the Sacred Heart, dating to the 1840s, is Idaho's oldest historic building. Route 6 cuts through St. Joes Forest, and the rolling hills on the Palouse.
