There are two routes to reach Twin Bridges, both take a little over an hour from the Silver Bow Club. The best route is to travel to Dillon and take exit 63, then take Montana route 41 north. You will be following the Beaverhead River. Look for Beaverhead Rock, a landmark used by Sacagawea who was part of the Lewis and Clark expedition, about 12 miles south of town.
If you’d like to be a bit more adventurous, the Melrose Road will provide a rural experience. The route is gravel for 18 miles. Take the frontage road to the nearby town of Melrose. Just past town, turn left onto the Melrose-Twin Bridges County Road. This road becomes gravel and continues for 18 miles. This route is much shorter but takes nearly as long due to the road surface.
