Cycling in Glacier Country

Cycling up Going-to-the-Sun Road to Logan Pass is an unforgettable experience that VeloNews called one of the MUST DO RIDES on their 2011 North American “Bucket List” and it was the Montana pick in Bicycling Magazine’s article, “The Best Ride in Every State.”   Please note that from June 15th through Labor Day, bicycles are not allowed on select stretches of the road between 11am and 4pm, so plan to start early.  It can take up to four hours to reach Logan Pass from the the Lake McDonald Lodge parking lot, but it is well worth the effort.

Mountain biking is not permitted in Glacier Park, with the exception of one trail that crosses McDonald Creek on the historic Quarter Circle Bridge and ends on a high bluff overlooking the convergence of the Middle and North Forks of the Flathead River.  In addition, there are many trails at Green Valley Ranch that make for great mountain biking.

Whitefish Mountain Resort is also a summer mountain biking destination, with ski lifts in operation to take you to the top of the runs.

Daily or extended equipment rentals can be arranged through Glacier Cyclery in Whitefish.  They also have an extensive list of trails and rides on their website.  We can assist you in lining up rentals ahead of your arrival, or if you prefer to ship your own equipment, we can make sure your bikes are tuned and ready to go when you arrive.
