I-15 to MT-43 to US-93 to ID-75. If you're in a hurry take I-15 to US-20 to ID-75 or shortcut from Dubois via 28, 22, and 33 to US-20 and finally ID-75.

is Us 93 2 or 4 lane at all over the mountains through Salmon down to 75? How long is the drive over this stretch...as opposed to going through Dubois and over to Arco and up?

Thanks

US-93 is two lane. More scenic and worth the extra 45 mins give or take. However, if you are interested in Craters of the Moon and not heading past there later you could swing around through Arco.

You'd be looking about 6 hours on average. Also, check for construction and other potential delays.
