Billings, mt to great falls, mt back roads?

Would like some advise on traveling from Billings, MT to Great Falls, MT on the back roads, not on the interstate.

That would be taking MT-3, to US-12 to US-191 to US-87 into Great Falls.

Would be traveling this Summer. How is that route for a 38 foot gas motor home towing a SUV?

Taking the back roads should save 100 miles compared with staying on I-90 and I-15.

Any advise would be appreciated.

Pretty flat and open country. Not very scenic but then again neither is the Interstate.

Thanks for the reply Bob,

The reason I ask is that I am trying to make it from Rapid City, SD to Prince George BC Canada in 4 days. The biggest run is the 1st day from Rapid City, SD to Great Falls, MT. Am not concerned with the scenery on that leg. After returning from Alaska we will be returning to Montana and Glacier National Park and will get to enjoy the Montana scenery then at our lesure.

Fairly flat open country going the back roads from Billings to Great Falls sounds good. But I am just a bit leary about traffic on those 2 lane roads during the Summer.

Thanks and best wishes to you and Barb.
