    Welcome to RTA!

    Do you have a paper map or a road atlas? If so, get it out. If not, go to your nearest Walmart and buy one, or order one from the RTA store (link below). A paper map will tell you that the trip from Coeur D'Alene to Butte, MT, is a scenic drive.

    There is Rattlesnake National Recreation Area, near Missoula.

    Garnet Ghost Town in Montana.

    Grant-Kohrs Ranch National Historic Site

    Canyon Creek Battlefield, part of Nez Perce National Historical Park, is located just 10 miles north of Laurel (which is just west of Billings.)

    Bear in mind that it's 510 miles from Coeur D'Alene to Billings, which is a full day's drive at interstate speeds. You'd not be able to do every single one of these things if you're trying to do the run in one day. Pick one, see it, and drive the rest of the day....that would be my advice.

    Default Beautiful Montana

    Montana has some of the most scenic routes to get a real feel for their State.

    Check on your maps - I take it you have obtained good detailed maps to plan this trip - and see just how many of their routes are marked as scenic, and how many attractions there are along those routes. I know, I often saw signs to attractions of which I had never heard, and was really surprised. The self guided auto tour of Earthquake Lake being one of them. Stay flexible enough to follow an interesting sign which could take you to the unexpected.
