Best Route from Missoula to Great Falls


Three of us are riding east via Missoula and Great Falls. Due
in the area late June. While we are going to generally follow
the L&C route we plan to do a shorter route between
Missoula and G.F. The question: which is best considering
terrain and weather/heat: the longer route via Helena or the
shorter ca 175 miler which goes more directly to Great Falls
along route 200? Or is there another better way to go?

I would have to say that the shorter route on Hwy. 200 would
be the best way to go. Not only is it more direct, but the
scenary is pretty great as well. There aren't that many paved
roads in Montana, so those two options are pretty much it.
