Drives

On the many beautiful back road through this unique county side,

you can see where a glacier carved through the mountains. You can see how a momma moose shows her young the right way through the swamps, and the many tails of deer and mountain goats running through the mountain sides.

As we travel along this page we will take you on some of our favorite drives. You will know where the drive starts and ends, also how long the it will be. Now some are back roads from town to town, while others are loops.

Lets start our adventure!!

Loops:

  • Mckellop-  This drive takes you along some of our old logging roads and right past the old mill itself. First take 5th street extension. This takes you by the old logging mill, and there are a couple beautiful walking paths along flower creek just behind the mill. After you cross the bridge, take the next right on to the old haul road. This beautiful well kept 13 mile road runs along the Kootenai River on one side, with acres of amazing forest on the other. Once you come to the end of the road, take another right onto Fisher River road. This road is full of nice camping areas and fun dirt roads for ATVs. At mile marker 10 you’ll find a turn off, take a right at this sign. As you drive along this road you’ll see everything from rocky river beds to marshes and the slopping cliffs. When you reach the end of this mesmerizing drive you’ll find yourself at highway 2 between Kalispell and Libby.

 

 

City to City:

  • Libby to Rexford- This drive takes most of the day but is worth it. You’ll start on hwy. 35 heading to the Libby Dam. Before you cross the Kootenai River by mile marker 18, you’ll want to turn to the left. This road takes you up the left side of the Dam, right passed the visitors center and many more beautiful areas. With 65 miles of barely touched land, you feel like the first people on Earth.
