Payette River Byway

Following the narrow Payette River Valley, Idaho’s Route 55 connects towns of McCall and Eagle. Just north of Boise, this two lane road marks the beginning of the 112 mile Payette River Scenic Byway. The byway connects a series of small resort towns, separated with long stretches of pure and wild Idaho landscape. Winding through forestland, passed towering mountains, recreation lakes, and deep river valleys, the byway offers access to a mild or wild Payette River, a string of national forest campsites, and promising fishing holes. This section of the North Fork of the Payette is particularly noted for 15 miles of Class V rapids.
