International Selkirk Loop
Where It Goes: The only byway on the registry that traverses two countries, the Selkirk spends significant time in British Columbia, looping around the Selkirk Mountains. It begins in Newport, Washington, on US Route 2, rounds through British Columbia, and finishes in Priest River, Idaho.
Length: 280 miles
Driving Time: About 5 hours
Where to Stop: Geologically older than the Rockies, the Selkirks are a hiker’s paradise. The Durrand Glacier Chalet area, in Revelstoke, British Columbia, guarantees solitude amidst over 100 varieties of wildflowers. It’s also a cyclist’s paradise, offering many amazing bike trips ranging in distance from 50-112 miles, including the Flowery Trail in Washington and the South Lakes in Idaho.
