Glacier National Park Biking On Your Own
Tired of the vehicle traffic? Try biking Glacier National Park, instead. You can rent an e-bike or a bike from our office and ride the easy, downhill 1.5 miles to the West Glacier entrance! Glacier Guides and Montana Raft is located on the Gateway to Glacier Bike Path, which connects to the park’s bike trails. If you’re looking for a bucket list bike ride, don’t miss the Going To The Sun Road in the spring.
Need a bike shuttle? We offer those, too, with advanced reservations, from early May until the Going to the Sun Road opens. $25/person. 4 person minimum.
Want to Ride the Going to the Sun Road in the Summer?
Pro Tip: if the Road is fully open to vehicle traffic, we highly recommend getting on the Logan Pass Express at the Apgar Visitor Center at 7am, loading your bike onto their rack, and heading straight down once you get to the top. You do need to be back to Apgar by 11am to be in compliance with Glacier National Park regulations.
A self guided biking tour of Glacier National Park begins at Glacier Guides and Montana Raft’s office, located on the Gateway to Glacier Bike Path. From our office, you can ride directly into West Glacier and Glacier National Park, or head west along the Bike Path and explore the towns of Coram and Hungry Horse. Great places to eat, drink, and recreate are located along the Bike Path.
We rent men’s, women’s, and children’s Raleigh Cadent 3 bikes, which are a hybrid between a mountain bike and a road bike. New in 2020, we now offer Raleigh e-bikes, too. Both bike styles are comfortable, safe, and perfect for biking around many miles of Northwest Montana! Helmets are included with each rental.

Other Biking Options

However, we typically only guide in the spring, before the Sun Road opens fully to vehicle traffic.
