Hey everyone it's been a while since I last posted. Anyway, I'm planning my next years trip from from Lethbridge to Portland OR. I'm looking for a route that is easy to navigate. In no rush to get there, just no steep grades. Where I live now eastern Canada there's not mountains to contend with, lol.

Can you suggest an easy route to my destination? Also, campground (stopovers) suggestions will greatly appreciated.

Thanks nice to be back!

One option is to take AB/BC 3 across Crowsnest Pass (one of the lowest in the Rockies), and then BC/US 95 into Idaho. Then I90 to US395 to I84. That stays in major river valleys, with low crossings.

That's the shortest/fastest route on Google Maps

I-15 to Pocatello then west on I-84 is a relatively easy run. However I-84 was hard on the kidneys although it may be improved now. Man it was rough in an empty 5 ton.

West on CA 3 to 97 south to I-84.


I (2-10-05) bought a 2002 F350 CC SWD PSD and a new 2003 Citation 10'8. I have been a tent camper all my life. I wanted more comfort while camping and CraterLake Ski Patrol.
It's time for more space. I purchased a 2016 Grand Design 380TH as of 10-29-2015.

That on ID / MT 93. (# is a bit of a narrow road in places. It's great on a motorcycle. KEN

You are right, US93 is the Lost Trail. 97 is further west. But BC3 west of Creston can feel like a roller coaster. US97 also has a couple of passes.

I like crossing southern BC, but it is longer, and hillier than crossing Washington on the I90/US395 diagonal.
