The route above may have more little towns along the way, but I bet it will have heavier traffic. Meriwether, Blackfoot, Browning, Durham and then West Glacier.
Glacier National Park is on the US-Canadian border and covers 1 million acres. There are over 130 lakes. The Native American groups when the European's arrived were the Blackfeet in the east and the Flathead in the West. The park was established in 1910 and the Great Northern Railway built a hotel and a chalet to encourage tourists.
Most riders go from the west, but you can also ride from the St. Mary's entry in the east. From the west it will be 35 miles to Logan Pass and coming from the east it is an 18 mile ride. Remember you need to ride back to where you start :) or you may ride from St. Mary's to West Glacier would be 35 miles. The maps above will show you the options. Enjoy your choice.
I love my riding days and look to find interesting and informative items to share.
