There's something mighty fine about a dirt road . . . too much pavement can't be good for the soul. Of course, if you're in a hurry these aren't the kind of roads you want to be on; in fact some of them are downright scary. But if you can endure the bumps, Idaho's back country roads will provide the adventure.
–from Outdoor Idaho's Backroad Adventures
It's estimated there are over forty-thousand miles of back roads that wind through the forests and deserts of Idaho. These rugged and seldom-used corridors beckon to adventurous travelers. From the Owyhee Backcountry Byway in the desert of southwestern Idaho . . . to the Magruder Road Corridor between the state's two largest wilderness areas . . . to the Lolo Motorway that follows a route traveled by Lewis and Clark, these remote roads can transport you to little-known scenes of beauty and wonder.
