Biking Cycling Glacier Country

Cycling Glacier Country

Note: As of July 1, 2023, Conservation Licenses are required for everyone age 12 and older to access most state lands, including wildlife management areas, fishing access sites and wildlife habitat protection areas. This requirement does not include state parks. Please recreate responsibly. Learn more here.

Western Montana by bike is the perfect way to cover plenty of terrain while breathing in the fresh mountain air. Clip in for a multiday cycling adventure, pedal up the awe-inspiring Going-to-the-Sun Road, shred a single-track mountain biking trail or find a family-friendly path like the Route of the Hiawatha or the Bitterroot Trail.

Biking options are diverse and many, so there’s something for every skill level. Miles of trail systems crisscross the region, and helpful trail maps can be found at local visitor centers, ranger stations and forest service offices.

Didn't bring your bike? Check out available bike rentals.

The local bike shops and adventure services listed below the trail information on this page can help get you outfitted for a bike ride and/or point you in the right direction for a two-wheeled adventure.

Please note: E-bikes are allowed in national parks and on state land anywhere a normal bike is permitted—but it’s best to check usage restrictions before heading out.
