Route Suggestions - Pullman to Whitefish

My buddy and I are planning a last minute trip up to the Oktoberfest in Whitefish, MT this weekend, but I have to work in Pullman on Friday. We are planning on taking off from there and heading over to St. Maries, Avery, St. Regis and on up to Whitefish. Certainly not set in stone, so if you know of a good route, please let me know. Dirt/Gravel is good, as would be a route that goes up through Murray. Thanks! (On a 950 Adventure and 1150GSA)

Thanks M-T !! That looks like a good one. I'm thinking of running FS 36 back to Libby along the Fisher River. Even though it's paved, its a blast. Basically 1 lane, just you and the occasional log truck.




I nicknamed it the Gobi Grinder after running it earlier this summer.

Gratuitous Post.... My favorite pic from our Glacier Trip this summer. Heading to St. Mary Lake. After coming out of the hills, I thought this looked kind of Africa like.

Dead forest!

Hey Scoutman, is that all dead forest on the far side of the lake? If so, there is going to be a heck of a fire someday soon.

The really grey section, about the middle third of the shot, is all dead timber from the fire a few years back. The lower portion looked like bug kill to me (from a distance at 80MPH). It is certainly ripe for another fire for sure. My formal education is in Forestry and Range Mgmt, so I understand the ecological neccesity of fire, but it sure chaps my butt to see all of the dead and dying timber wasted. Especially when I have to go further and further each year to get my winter's wood.

That is a fun route. I would agree with Moto. I'm a recent WAZZU grad and took a lot of trips up into montana, including a trip to glacier taking this route. Good roads and you make decent time.

HAVE FUN!



P.S. While you're in Pullman, you NEED to stop by The ZZU and get yourself a basket of wings. Wings on Wednesday nights were only 3 bucks (Wing Night!!).

If they don't, they're a lot easier to pick up

I expect I'll be testing that theory pretty regularly.
