Willie and Jeanne Worthy have written a wonderful guide to 4x4 routes in Western Montana. This 8 ½ x 11 inch spiral bound book has over forty routes with turn-by-turn directions, along with mileage and GPS coordinates that will guide you along the most interesting primitive motorized routes of western Montana while providing histories of early settlement and insights into the geology of the areas traveled.
From Willie and Jeanne:
If you like to explore old mining areas, poke around old buildings, enjoy magnificent views, and visit high elevation mountain lakes, then this is the book for you. Join us as we travel on a variety of roads from easy enjoyable outings to roads that will challenge both your driving skills and your vehicle’s capabilities.
If you’re only interested in hard core roads, then we are sorry but you will not find any class 5 routes in this book and only a few class 4s. Why? Because after seriously exploring Western Montana over the last 20+ years we have not been able to find any that are now legal roads and if we should come across any we will be sure to include them in the future . However, we have been able to compile 225 pages of travel information that can be found no where else in one publication.
All the routes shown at the time of printing are legal roads that we have driven multiple times. We have tried to be as accurate as possible in our mileage figures, GPS readings and area history as you drive the Routes we has described. From the Missoula area all but one of the routes can be completed in a day’s drive, some times in a very long day. And even that one has been done in one REALLY long day.
