Bicycles are allowed on roadways, bike routes, and parking areas. They are not al-lowed on trails. Observe all traffic regulations. Keep to the right side of the road and ride in single file. Pull over if four or more vehicles stack up behind you. During periods of low visibility a white light or reflector, visible from a distance of at least 500 feet to the front, and a red light or reflector, visible from at least 200 feet to the rear, are required. Be visible! Attach a bright flag on a pole and wear light-colored clothing. Watch for falling rocks, drainage grates, and ice on road.

Driving in the park
The roads of Glacier National Park offer access to some of the most spectacular mountain scenery in the world.

Take time to enjoy the views. If more than four vehicles stack up behind you, please use a pullout to let them pass safely. Be aware of wildlife along the roads, especially at dusk or at night. Animals often dart out in front of vehicles. Please watch for and give the right of way to children and pedestrians. Obey the posted speed limit at all times.

Road Construction
Due to the long snowy winters and late spring thaw, road construction/repair can only be accomplished in the summer months. All construction activities in the park are undertaken with care to insure that visitors are inconvenienced as little as possible.
