Closed Captioning Settings
The White Pine Scenic Byway begins at Interstate 90 and Highway 3, near Cataldo, home of the Old Mission of the Sacred Heart. Built in the mid 1800s, this Mission is the oldest building still standing in Idaho.
In the Giant White Pine Campground of the St. Joe National Forest, walking paths lead you through white pine and red cedar centuries old, and there is one 600-year old pine on display. At one time, the giant tree stood nearly 200 feet tall. You'll have no trouble finding fun and adventure here . . . from camping, boating and swimming to gold panning.
And finally, the rolling hills of the Palouse will carry you into Potlatch, where Frederick Weyerhauser built the largest white pine mill in the world in 1905.
