Written Directions

This ride starts about 30 mins west of Helena in a town called Avon. From Avon, MT head north on MT Route 141 all the way till it T's into and ends at MT Route 200.

Scenery

This route features wonderful Montana cattle-farmland across the Garnet Mountain range from US 12 to MT Route 200 (I took it South to North). You'll see beautiful unspoiled pasture lands with picturesque mountain backdrops. I took this route in the late spring and was in awe of how green and lush the grasslands were. About way through the route I came upon this breathtaking reservoir (wasn't marked with a name/sign). Later the route spills over and through a massive valley and finally ends as route 141 runs straight into the side of a mountain where the road T's into MT Route 200.

Drive Enjoyment

This route is truly a dream to drive. It's road conditions are very good and it has a nice collection of small sweeping turns as well as hills. But the best thing about this route is that it's out of the way enough that you'll nearly have it all to yourself ... in the hour or so I was on it while stopping multiple times to snap some photos, I car never passed me going the same direction I was going. And, only a few cars passed me heading the other way.

Tourism Opportunities

This route shines with great scenery & road conditions & solitude ... that same solitude that makes for a great escape from it all also means that there is really nothing to do along the way. If you want gas you'll need to get it before or after and if you want food, you should try Lincoln, MT.

The reservoir appears to be Nevada Lake. The Blackfoot fills it, and the Nevada flows from it.

I've been taking the Wonder 141 for years. I am lucky to see more than 3 other vehicles during the stretch. Head to Helena and cross McDonald Pass or go to Missoula and curve through the mountains of Western Montana.
