About The Top 10 Scenic Drives in the Northern Rockies
The Top 10 Scenic Drives in the Northern Rockies’ initiative began in 2005 after the International Selkirk Loop and Northwest Passage Scenic Byway joined the Beartooth Highway and Hells Canyon Scenic Byway in achieving All-American Road (AAR) designation – the highest designation in the U.S. National Scenic Byway system. The destination is built upon its four AARs, four connecting Historic Trails and 19 National Parks, Monuments and Recreation Areas, and includes more than 100 key partners, including State, Provincial, Regional, Local and Tribal organizations, as well as State and Federal Agencies and private businesses, organizations and individuals.
