I worked out of Lewistown for several years back in the mid 70s. Yes, there is some interesting back road potential. I've put together some routes which include virtually everything you mention (ferries, breaks, Judiths, Snowys, Castles, Little Belts, and even Utica. But, right now I'm sidelining that region due to the distances involved AND also due to the weather at the end of July. It can be miserable hot and there ain't much shade.
1700 miles is only a little over 200 miles a day. That isn't too bad, especially if there is some pavement involved.
