The "Old" Spiral Highway - Old Lewiston Grade Revisited

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

The "Old" Spiral Highway, also known as the Lewiston Grade is a beautiful road that rises from Lewiston, Idaho to the top of the plateau north of town.  It runs 8 miles, changes 2,000 ft in elevation and is loaded with corners.

The road was built in 1917 to accommodate the "modern" cars and trucks of the day.  It's since been replaced by US 95, a 4 lane highway.

Words are one thing, however the visual of this road captures why it's a great road to ride on a motorcycle.
