And to be clear I don't mean it would be difficult, I mean it would be a dangerous, wet, cold snow shoe hike for miles and miles. The danger part is from an unstable snow pack (snow that is moving and sliding as it melts) , isothermic snow pack that is bottomless (even with snow shoes you would sink to your waist). As the snow continues to melt the creeks and rivers are running deep and they too are dangerous. That also means that many of the hot springs are underwater and inaccessible.
Northern Route (going westbound)
Exit I-90 at Regis, MT. Go east on Hwy. 135 to Hwy. 200. Go north to Thompson Falls. Turn west onto MT Secondary Hwy. 471 to Thompson Pass. Continue over the pass into Idaho passing through Murray, Prichard, Enaville and Kingston. Rejoin I-90 at Exit 43. The road is paved all the way, very scenic and frequently used by cyclists.
Southern Route (going westbound)
Note: There is no viable southern option for road cyclists.
However, if bicycles are set up for gravel, i.e., a mountain bike or a bike with at least 700x32c tires; there is a much shorter detour—only 11.5 miles. It is the NorPac Trail. Details can be found at http://friendsofcdatrails.org/maps/for_all/09_NorPac_Trail.pdf
Going westbound the trail starts at the Lookout Pass Ski Area on I-90.
