If on interstate 90 turn north at exit 340 to Clyde Park. Just 5 miles past Ringling, home of the state coyote calling championship you turn north on to the Lennep Cutoff (AKA Route 294). This road connects US Highway 89 to US Highway 12.
Route follows the Jawbone Rail Road route of the Milwaukee RR. See the Charlie Bair Museum, Castle Town ghost town, Milwaukee RR power house and many views of the 3 mountain ranges all with in a few miles.
This road has it all. Twist, turns, hills, flats and straight sections. Watch for pot holes early in the year.
The Bair Family Museum, one of the west's greatest suprises. See Louie the 14th furniture in a Montana farm house. Gold faucets in the bathrooms and the stories of the early west. Castel Town, one of the largest siver strikes in central Montana and a very good quality ghost town. Artifacts of the Milwaukee RR along the famouse Jawbone rail route. Many types of wildlife including deer, elk, antelope and wolves.
The small town of Martinsdale has great fishing at Martinsdale lake. Also a great place to have a sandwich or a drink at the local bar. Very interesting area!
