(Glacier National Park Facebook page) Spring plowing on the Going-to-the-Sun Road, past Lake McDonald Lodge, has begun. There is no ski, snowshoe, hiking, or bicycle access beyond the lodge while crews are working. Hiker/biker access is open to Rising Sun on the east side of the road at this time. In Many Glacier, hikers and bikers may travel as far as the junction with the Ranger Station and Campground. Additionally, there are currently no hiker/biker restrictions on Camas road, and in Two Medicine, the plowed section of the road is open for hiker/biker access.
Take some time to enjoy the first steps on solid ground this year, and get excited for all the adventures to come. Grab a friend, grab a bike, and don’t forget to grab that bear spray!
