Fee Free Saturday At Glacier National Park

Parks Celebrates National Public Lands Day and the First Annual Bike Your Park Day

WEST GLACIER, MONT –The entrance fee for Glacier National Park will be waived on Saturday, September 24, in recognition of National Public Lands Day. National Public Lands Day is an annual event intended to encourage people to visit and support places like Glacier National Park.

September 24 is the first annual Bike Your Park Day. This is a do-it-yourself free event in celebration of the National Park Service's Centennial, and the 40thanniversary of the Adventure Cycling Association.

Bicycling encourages people in a healthy, affordable, interactive way to explore parks and public lands. It can also assist in reducing congestion, noise and air pollution, demand for parking, and impacts on wildlife.

Bicycling in Glacier means sharing the roads with both recreational and passenger vehicles of all sizes. Special precautions need to be taken by all visitors to ensure that everyone has a safe and enjoyable time. Vehicles need to allow a 3 ft (1 m) distance between their vehicle and bicyclists.

Bicycles are permitted on all of the roads in the park but are not permitted on trails with three exceptions:

-The paved path from Park Headquarters to Apgar Village,

-The Fish Creek Bike Path from Apgar Village to Fish Creek Campground

-The old Flathead Ranger Station Trail

A great alternative to biking the busy Going-to-the-Sun Road is the scenic Camas Road.
