Sacajawea Historic Byway

To kick off the Sacajawea Historic Byway drive we recommend starting out at the famous Sacajawea Interpretive, Cultural and Education Center in Salmon Idaho dedicated to honoring and providing education about Sacajawea, an “Agai Dika” Lemhi Shoshone woman and her role in Lewis and Clark travels and Corps of Discover. Sacajawea Historic Byway Location – Beginning in Salmon Idaho drive out Idaho 28 traveling southwest for 120 miles exit 143 then follow Idaho 33 for about 12 miles ending at the intersection of Interstate 15 and Idaho 33. Sacajawea Historic Byway Length – About 132 miles with 2 1/2 hours traveling time Sacajawea Historic Byway Road Conditions – Two lane paved roads that are well maintained. Best Times to enjoy the Sacajawea Historic Byway – The mostly straight traveling offers year round traveling enjoyment.  Summer months offer the most scenic traveling where you can stop and enjoy the vistas along the way.  You may want to make a day of it and veer off at Tendoy where you can travel the 3 1/2 hour Lewis & Clark Byway.  Fall colors off spectacular vistas while you will need to watch for blowing snow and icy roads during the winter months.
