Do you actually get off 212 when going to Cooke? There are a lot of scenic diversions off that road, including the Morrison Jeep trail, Hellroaring Plateau road (turns off 212 at the campground at the bottom of the switchbacks), and the Daisy/Lulu Pass-Goose Lake roads out of Cooke City. All doable with a stock Jeep but some lift and good skids advised for the latter.

Another scenic route for just a drive is FS 274/487 from Martinsdale to Utica through the Little Belts. Lots of diversions off that too.

Another drive is over Duck Creek Pass between Canyon Ferry Lake and White Sulphur Springs-several options on that route also, but that's getting quite aways away from Billings.
heading to Goose Lake tomorrow and hit that and Morrison Trail. Heard Morrison trail can be a nail biter lol. did Noble lake a month ago and was still snow in places and fisher lake (granite county) last sunday and it was nice.

Hit Noble Fork 2 weeks ago in the midst of all that rain/snow. Brand new MT's and both axles locked wasn't enough to get through the mud pit-had to string line. Horizontal snow (about 30 mph wind) at the lake. We were going to hike Mustard Pass but bagged it.

Goose Lake should be good. Are you going to hike to Grasshopper Glacier? Definitely worth the time. There is also a lot of ancient mining artifacts between Goose and Little Goose Lakes.

Nope, closer to the lake than that one. It's sort of open around it and it's on a pretty good grade-guessing 20-25%. I have gone through it a number of times in the past but with snot on both ends from all the rain, just couldn't push through it.
