Bike Glacier's Going to the Sun Road

16 Miles Total - 2460 ft gain - Out-and-Back Trail

Originally added by Gavin Pirrie

A twist on the classic Going to the Sun Road - biking with the light of a full moon.

Bike up the road towards Logan Pass. Make sure to stay alert for traffic coming up and down the road. Helmets and flashing red, rear lights are required when biking at night in Glacier National Park. A forward facing light is also recommended to see gravel and other obstacles. Make sure to keep eyes out for wildlife on the road as they are more active during full moons.

There are multiple starting points depending on the challenge you are looking for - 

  • Starting from "The Loop" - 16 mi. round trip
  • Starting from Avalanche Lake - 30 mi. round trip  
  • Starting from Lake McDonald Lodge - 32 mi. round trip

Make sure to tune your bike up before you cycle the road!
