WEST GLACIER, MT. – Apgar Bike Path, a popular paved hiking and biking trail that connects Apgar Village with West Glacier, is under construction to prune roots and repave the path.

Roots growing beneath the bike path have caused the paved trail to buckle and break open. A contractor will prune the roots, then remove and replace the pavement in those sections. Initial pruning and removal of pavement has been completed between the park headquarters area and the Going-to-the-Sun Road.

Work continues on the trail between Glacier Institute Field Camp and Apgar Village. Trail users are encouraged to use caution as they will encounter some off-trail detours, temporary closures and equipment along the trail. Before biking or hiking the trail, please check trail conditions by contacting a visitor center, ranger station or calling 406 888-7800.

Work is anticipated to be completed by early August. For more information on the trail paving project, please contact Park Engineer and Project Coordinator Wes Reynolds at 406 888-7974.
