Calgary to Idaho

When we leave the Stampede this July we are planning to visit friends in Idaho. What is HWY 2 like towing an AS. What is a good place to stop along the way?

actually 2 turns into 3 and then crosses the border. I missed that change in HWY number before.

Where in Idaho are you going? As you know, it is a big state.

Fastest route probably would be to take 2 South from Calgary, then hit 3 and go across Crow's Nest pass and into BC. Take 95 south to come into Idaho, go straight south and you hit Post Falls.

Lots of variations of course. Glacier park in Montana, Banff park in Canada. All the roads are good in that part of both Canada and the US, although some of the roads around Glacier park on the east side can be nasty. Don't even think about 49 west of Browning MT and I am not fond of 89 south of St. Mary.

We've taken HY 2 several times from Glacier National Park to Bonner's Ferry, ID; and also to Priest Lake, ID. It's fine-- a very scenic route, and it avoids Lookout Pass on I-90.

Given our location in the midst of your route, we haven't done the entire trip in one outing, but we've done HY 3, to Alberta, which is fine. From the Creston Valley, we frequently drive BC highway 21 (off HY 3) to the border crossing at Porthill (small and usually fast and pleasant,) which becomes ID HY 1, which turns into HY 95 and 2 (again,) This gets you to Coeur d'Alene, and from there you can go westbound a short distance on I-90.to Post Falls.

From Calgary, it might be just as easy to cross the border at Kingsgate, south of Cranbrook, BC on HY 95.

It should be a pleasant trip in the summer, with lots to do along the way if you have time for it. There are some beautiful lakes at Sandpoint, ID and Coeur d'Alene.
