Title: US 89 Montana
Post by: driftlessregion on November 25, 2017, 05:41:14 pm
Has anyone ridden US 89 from Great Falls to Browning? Is it a good road to ride? Montana's bike map seems to think so.

I have ridden it 3 or 4 times.
It is far superior to Hwy 83 on the west side.
Stunning mountain views instead of mostly trees.
Half the traffic. Better shoulders.

Camping in the town park in Choteau and at Dupuyer Park.
I consistently recommend this route over the west side.
