Very scenic drive north of Spokane all the way to Canada. Many small towns and scenic spots, easy travel, little traffic, easy access to services.

this was a wonderful car ride. Winding roads up and down beautiful vistas. The road was usually two lane. Passed through many small towns (watch out for the speed zones!!)Had a picnic at one of the many sites that has picnic table, garbage cans and bathrooms!

The drive on 395 between Spokane and Sandpoint is well worth the extra time. It goes into the foothills and follows the Pend Oreille river. The views are spectacular and it is a must to stop and take advantage of trails and short driving detours. We made a morning of the drive and it was well worth it.

Once you are out of the city (Spokane) this highway gives you access to some great riding into small towns. Almost all the roads off the highway either loop back to the highway or across to route 2. Nice ride from Spokane through Newport and into Sandpoint ID.

Took 395 from Spokane to the Canadian Border. Lots to see along the way especially the beautiful scenery. There are some interesting towns North of Spokane and of course there are the Columbia, Colville and Kettle Rivers to drive beside. Kettle Falls and Chewelah are two towns worth visiting if only for and hour for a break. Lots of history... More

We are about 95 miles northwest of Spokane and have recently been making the trip fairly often. There are some historical small towns off the highway that can be fun to explore.

Great views of the PNW. Average speed is 60 MPH except when traveling through towns. Deer are quite often on the road so pay extra attention when traveling at night.

Highway 395 is 556 miles long. We have enjoyed many drives along Highway 395. As one gets into Spokane, it one of the most northern most cities on the route. We drove the section from approximately the Tri-City area of Washington to Spokane this trip. It has scenic views in some sections such as forests, etc. In terms of my... More
