Biking in Glacier National Park

Jun 21st 2009 — Biking,Glacier,Montana and Idaho Loop — 4:25 pm

The third day we rode from Bigfork to West Glacier. The Adventure Cycling Map had a nice backroad to take for much of the way. We camped at Sprague Creek after discovering that Avalanche wasn’t going to open for another 4 days.

The road was closed at Avalanche for cars due to the clearing of the winter’s snow off the Going to the Sun Road. However, bikes were allowed to go 10 miles or so further up to The Loop, the single switchback in the Sun road. It was an unexpected surprise to be able to have the whole road to ourselves for a decent distance.

After the ride we did the short hike up to Avalanche lake.

The next morning we departed, backtracked to Columbia Falls, and headed north towards Eureka, Montana.
