Big update to the Going-to-the-Sun Road Driving Guide!

This past winter, we updated our popular Going-to-the-Sun Road Driving Guide to include spring biking information! Whether you’re going by car, bus, or bike, this map will make you explore like an expert. Get it by itself or pair it with the Day Hikes of Glacier National Park Map Guide for a discount as the Day Tripper’s Package. Come along with us as we pedal up Going-to-the-Sun Road to launch the map in this blog, then check out our Biking in Glacier page to get ready!

The trail awaits…

Planning your trip to some of the most iconic National Parks can feel overwhelming. Hundreds of miles of trails, millions of acres of jaw-dropping wild spaces, hours between trailheads… and only days to explore.

Every time we go to explore a new place, we feel your pain. After literally hiking all 734 miles of trail in Glacier, then identifying and hiking just about every conceivable day hike in Grand Teton, Olympic, Rocky Mountain, Yellowstone, Yosemite and Zion National Parks, we’ve put together the ultimate planning resource.

We don’t just tell you about each trail in an honest way, we make recommendations. We also help you sort out all of the Fees, Permits, Passes, and Reservations which can be confusing/tricky/overwhelming!

Find your next destination below and click on it for a list of the day hikes, ordered by our recommendations. Pick up one of our map-guides that puts all of this information in the palm of your hand.
