4X4 ROUTES OF
WILLIE AND JEANNE WORTHY
WE EMPHASIZE THE MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU SHOULD DO BEFORE YOU RUN ANY OF THESE ROUTES, IS TO CHECK A FOREST SERVICE MAP AND THE NEW MOTOR VEHICLE USER MAPS FOR EACH FOREST TO BE SURE THE ROUTE IS STILL OPEN AND LEGAL!!!!
POZEGA LAKE ROUTE WAS OPEN BUT IS NOW
Pozega Lakes trail
Thanks to ALL of you who contacted the Anaconda-Deer Lodge County Commissioners and let them know your opinion on keeping this trail open. IT WORKED!!!
A Butte, MT judge ruled that the Modesty Creek access road shall remain open to the public. "County roads need to remain county roads and open to the public."
The road that goes through two ranches and then enters into 12,000 ACRES of National Forest land and on to the Pozega Lakes area for years was closed to public entry. This road closure locked Public Land to motorized vehicle usage as well as foot or horse access. This unaccessible to the public area of National Forest land happens to be one of the better elk hunting areas in the county as well as being rich in early mining history. The Anaconda - Deer Lodge County Commission filed suit against the property owners and gained the reopening of the road in March of 2012.
This route is quite scenic as well as being a challenging 4x4 route for safe and minimal impact travel. In fact it is right up there with some of the more challenging routes in Montana.
Back Roads Publications presents the first 4x4 guide book to Western Montana.
This 8 1/2 x 11 inch, 226 page book is a mile by mile guide to over forty of Montana's most historic, scenic or challenging four wheel drive roads. We have had the book spiral bound, so you can fold it back on itself without breaking the binding. The covers are vinyl coated to make them waterproof. The pages are heavy paper with waterproof ink and we've left room in the margins for your own notes.
Call or email us today to order your copy of our book for our special introductory internet price $25.00 (which includes USPS priority shipping). At the present time we do not accept credit cards nor Pay Pal (in an effort to keep prices low.) You may send a personal check or money order (US funds only) payable to Back Roads Publications to PO Box 101, Clinton, MT 59825

"I got the book an hour ago and haven’t been able to put it down, thank you very much!! Maybe this summer you can give me a personal guided tour of some of the trails. As a newbie to Montana I feel like I'm getting the best trail information that I can get. I have several trips planned for this summer and can't wait to go exploring the Montana back roads! Thanks Willie for your hard work and dedication."
