The hour drive from Missoula to Seeley Lake is beautiful. As you leave Missoula, Hwy 200 follows a portion of Blackfoot River. After turning on to MT-83, the scenery just keeps getting better. The forest canopy reaches to the edges of the road, only to open up at multiple lakes dotted along the route.
From Missoula, take I-90 east to MT Hwy 200 east (exit 109). Continue on Hwy 200 for roughly 30 miles and then take a left onto MT-83 north. From here it is a straight shot north to Seeley Lake, which will be on your left.
