It traverses the Colville Confederated Tribal Reservation and abuts the Okanogan National Forest. The byway follows the Okanogan River with stunning valleys and rugged hillsides until it flows into the Columbia River. Historical markers tell the story of a rich history of natives and emigrants along the route. The byway route accesses the Audubon Society's Great Washington Birding Trail; Osoyoos Lake Memorial Park along with Alta Lake and Concoy State Parks as well as the Highland Historic Loop and the Many Lakes Historic Loop. Activities along the byway include farmers markets, bird watching, golfing, hiking, biking, climbing, horseback riding, camping, skiing, boating, local wineries & breweries, and rodeos such as the Omak Stampede & World Famous Suicide Race.
