The Sawtooth Scenic Byway, a 115-mile stretch of State Highway 75 that runs from Shoshone in the south to Stanley in the north, is one of 27 scenic byways in the state featured on a newly launched Idaho Scenic Byways Web site.

In service since June 25, the site will give travelers information about attractions and activities to see along each byway.

The Sawtooth Byway is anchored by the Sawtooth National Recreation Area, which is loaded with rivers, streams and 300 alpine lakes. The area is home to elk, deer, bear, pronghorn antelope and wolves.

Scenic byways have grown in popularity with groups including RV travelers, motorcycle groups and family vacationers. Each byway on the site has a slideshow, and users can e-mail postcards, said an Idaho Commerce and Labor Department news release. That department developed the site under its Division of Tourism Development.
