Every spring and fall, bicycling, including e-bikes, may be permitted on park roads while they’re closed to motorized, public travel. Electric or pedal-assist bikes are considered to be bikes (as opposed to motor vehicles). They can ride anywhere bikes are allowed. Roads will not be free of cars during these times: bicyclists will encounter employees, contractors, plows, and other administrative vehicles on the roads.
If you plan to bike on any roads open to public, motorized travel, check out our bicycling page.

Fall bicycling season begins when park roads close in early November and ends when plowing operations stop so that enough snow can accumulate on the roads to support oversnow travel. Fall biking typically ends by the third week of November. The following roads may be opened to bicycling each fall:
