Long Description:
This stop details all of the points of interest between this location and the byways official starting point at the Cataldo Mission approximately 82 miles to the east. The location looks across the fields toward the historic town of Potlatch. A large lumber mill that was at one time the largest in the world once dominated this view.

Panoramic views of farm land, extensive forests, rivers, and mountains, and the largest stand of White Pine trees in North America can be seen along the White Pine Scenic Byway.

The route begins on Idaho 3 at Interstate 90 near Cataldo, where you can visit the famous 1840s' Old Mission of the Sacred Heart, and passes through the deeply contrasting forests of Idaho's timber country to St. Maries. It crosses the picturesque St. Maries and St. Joe Rivers to Idaho 6 and then meanders south through the St. Joe National Forest and the rolling hills of the Palouse region on Idaho 6 to its junction with US 95.
