6 Days and over 700 miles of mostly unpaved forest roads from just north of Boise to the Canadian border.
For a while now I have had the idea of driving most if not the entire length of the state of Idaho on unpaved forest service roads. In July of 2019 I achieved much of that goal by skipping southern Idaho and beginning from about 40 miles North of Boise near the town of Garden Valley and getting to only a few miles from the Canadian border in Kaniksu National Forest. The trip featured a wealth of beautiful scenery that I attempted to capture in photos and videos. I was lucky to avoid any breakdowns, major delays, unexpectedly close roads or sustained bad weather. Any of those could have ended the journey early. I have broken down the drive day by day in the links below. Each day was recorded using GaiaGPS.
