Glacier Park Collection

Experience Epic on Going-to-the-Sun Road

Amazing biking trails abound around Glacier National Park, but there’s nothing quite as incredible as a cruise along Going-to-the-Sun Road. Every spring, this iconic road is closed to vehicle traffic but open to bikers, allowing cyclists a once-in-a-lifetime chance to have this 50-mile road practically all to themselves. Hop on your road bike for some exercise or rent an e-bike for a leisurely adventure. As you breeze down the nearly empty road, you can take in awe inspiring views of glaciers, beautiful valleys, cascading waterfalls and towering mountains that surround you. And, if you’re lucky, you might spot some wildlife on your travels, too.
