From the Forest Service website:
FAIRFIELD RANGER DISTRICT REPORTS ROAD CLOSURE DUE TO WASHOUT
Due to a strong rainstorm that went through the area last night, Forest Road #227, commonly known as the ‘Featherville - Ketchum Road’ on the Fairfield Ranger District has washed out and is impassable. It is closed from Big Hole to Skeleton Creek.

This closure will prohibit travel from Big Smoky to Featherville. Signs have been posted at the Forest boundary on the west side of the Fairfield Ranger District and at the Big Smoky Junction on the east side.

Due to the severity of the washout it may take some time to repair. Employees from the Fairfield Ranger District are on site today and a team of experts will be evaluating the road and assessing the damage. As soon as additional information about the damage and repair to the road is known, an update will be provided.

CONTACT: Carol Brown, Public Affairs Officer
PHONE:  208-622-5371

At this point we haven't seen an update. We suggest you call Carol to see if bicyclists can walk around the washout and/or provide a detour around it.

Todd:
Do you have any written cues/mileages from leaving the GD route at Butts Cabin to entering Waterton NP? I've heard of one or two others doing this and I'd like to get more specific information on road conditions, etc.

On August 4 a wildfire started near Roosevelt, WA. Currently the Corps of Engineers campground is closed until further notice because the firefighters are camped there.

Get on the road early in the morning - there will be less vehicles than in mid-day. Having vests and the flags is a great idea to make yourselves more visible. During the summer months there's no way to avoid the tourist throngs since those will be some of the same places you'll want to see. Check the Yellowstone National Park website for possible road construction & closures. And here's a link to biking in the park:

There is construction near Condon. Bridge replacement between Cold Creek campground and Holland Lake.
N 47°39.766' , W 113°49.722'

They are letting people ford the river, it's not too difficult.

As John said, there are several campgrounds along US 12 and are listed on the map. Here's the USFS link where you can click on the campground name and see if it has water.

Routes / Re: Missoula, Mt. to Bear Tooth Hwy.

ACA's Lewis & Clark #8 map shows routing between Three Forks (west of Bozeman) and Columbus (where you would head SE to reach Red Lodge). It keeps cyclists off I-90 as much as possible but there still are places where you have to ride on it. And there are roads between Missoula and Three Forks to stay off it but again you'll do some riding on it. We don't have that portion mapped on any of our routes. If you can get a Montana state map and stop in our office I can point out routing.

We are open weekdays from 8 - 5. Please let me know ahead of time if you need help.

I would wait. Other folks comment on these posts and it's very possible you'll get information you want so you won't have to buy a map.

Adventure Cycling's Western Express #1 map shows routing from Vallejo to Davis. From the link, click on the blue text "Detail" on 1. San Francisco, CA to Fallon, NV (310.5 mi.).

On SR 9 north of Silverthorne, road construction is occurring through July between mile markers 126 to 137. Expect delays Mondays-Thursdays. Info: 970-724-4724.

If going northbound, a detour is to take Ute Pass Rd./CR 15, then unpaved CR 3 to Hot Sulphur Springs. This is a few miles shorter, but requires 1,200 feet of extra cumulative climbing. Quite a few miles of it are also unpaved (albeit a good quality).

John:
I like the idea to use the Inside Fork Rd. I haven't been between Polebridge and Columbia Falls using the North Fork Rd. in years but it used to be as summer progressed, the gravel North Fork Rd. turned into horrendous washboards from traffic. At Polebridge Charlie can ask the locals to see what they say.
