Biking the Going-to-the-Sun Road in the Spring

A Magical Experience in one of our Secret Seasons

One of the best kept secrets is the spring season when the Going-to-the-Sun Road is closed to cars, but open to bikers and walkers, providing a quieter glimpse into the heart of Glacier National Park.

Visit the Road Status page on Glacier National Park's Website for updates on biking and hiking access.

Gear up to ride as far as the plows allow, or bring the entire family for a leisurely ride and picnic along McDonald Creek as it cascades down toward Lake McDonald.


Plowing begins in April and the road typically opens to vehicle traffic in late-June or early-July.
