The Underrated River That Just Might Be The Most Beautiful Place In Idaho

The mighty St. Joe River in northern Idaho doesn’t get nearly as much attention as it should, but this not-so-little gem is truly magnificent! Winding and twisting along its own scenic byway, and home to some seriously fruitful trout fishing, “The Joe” is an idyllic slice of paradise in the panhandle that also has a few surprises and world records up its sleeve. Not to mention some of the most incredible, yet underrated, waterfront scenery in the state. It’s a lush, rejuvenating paradise… but without the crowds.Take a look.
