It looks like there are a couple routes from Eureka or Hwy 93 across the Whitefish Range to the North Fork Road. Even if it is paved, the Going to the Sun Road is still worth doing. From East Glacier dirt roads head south along the Rocky Mountain Front.
If I remember correctly, the route up Graves Creek through the Twochuck was a scenic route to the N Fork from Eureka way but that's a memory from 20 years ago now! Need to revisit the map to make sure. Bowman Lake is beautiful too but more traveled. If headed toward east glacier, good cut across from there on dirt over toward the paved browning/heart butte cut across. Bet you two are having fun with this! :)
