YOU CANNOT RIDE YOUR E-BIKES FROM EDDIE’S TO AVALANCHE LAKE TRAILHEAD.

Please remember if you plan to ride the Going-to-the-Sun Road on e-bikes before the road is open to cars you will need to transport your ebike from Eddie’s Cafe to Avalanche Lake Trailhead. We have bike racks that hook to your trunk of the car and one’s for the hitch. You can transport 2 ebikes at a time on them.

 

Or you can rent our foldable ebikes and put them in your trunk and or backseat. We can typically fit around 2 foldable ebikes in the back of an SUV.

 

The Avalanche Lake trailhead is 15 miles away if you need to shuttle your bikes in your vehicle. Please keep in mind the road can get very busy so getting here on time to pick up your bikes is important.

 

It is 15 miles one way, round trip would be 30 miles and you wouldn’t have any battery left. Not only that but the road gets very busy with traffic and during certain times it’s actually closed to Bikes. So don’t even consider biking from here during June through Aug.

 

ALTERNATIVE BIKE RIDES TO THE GOING TO THE SUN ROAD

 

When the Going to the Sun Road is Open and you are looking for another Great Ride through the Forests of Glacier National Park off the beaten path away from the crowds then you’ll want to ride the iconic Gravel/Dirt Inside Northfork Road.

This is a completely Gravel/Dirt road and away from all services so you need to be prepared with Food, Water, Bear Spray, and be ready to ride a bumpy exciting road! Your chances of seeing a lot of wildlife on this ride are extremely high because y oua re so much further away from people.

 

Here’s the Starting Location to the Inside Northfork Road you ride to from Eddie’s Cafe: https://maps.app.goo.gl/kAeHArEBZPD6iVNv9

 

It’s just around the corner from us and is a total of around 26 miles long. 6.5 miles up the road there is a gate that is closed to Vehicles which you can ride past on your ebike.

It is a much more off the beaten path ebike ride but it is personally our favorite because you are away from the hustle and bustle of the tourists and get to ride on a more gradual road with incredible scenery and wildlife around!

There are some amazing hikes and lakes to explore off the Inside Northfork Road. Check them out below for more info and videos about them to see if they are something you would like to do.

Camas Creek  A nice combination of forested trail with large meadows backdropped by epic mountains.”

 

Starting from the Camas Creek Trailhead off the Inside North Fork Road, the Camas Creek Trail starts out in a lodgepole forest and quickly breaks out into big open meadows. The meadows are a bit marshy, especially in the spring, so plan accordingly.

 

About 1.5 miles in, you come to Christensen Meadow which is an expansive meadow. The views are good, but not great, however this is a great place to look for animals. The trail goes into a mixed burned and unburned forest for a little over a mile, then opens back up to the picturesque Rogers Meadow. Camas Creek has slowed down and snakes in large loops through the meadow that is ringed with a lodgepole forest. Heavens Peak, Mt. Vaught, and Stanton Mountain provide an impressive backdrop. This meadow is amazing habitat for a variety of wildlife, so take your time and look for anything from river otters to moose.

 

From there, the trail enters a pleasant lodgepole forest. Unfortunately, the trail never comes very close to the quaint Rogers Lake, but you do get a couple of slight glimpses. The trail intersects the West Lakes Trail that heads over to Trout Lake, but there is a creek ford of Camas Creek. In the spring, this ford can be very dangerous with high, fast and incredibly cold water. This trail makes for a nice out and back, particularly to Rogers Meadow.

Dutch Creek “This infrequently maintained trail takes you through a wild, burned forest to a lovely alpine lake.”

 

Finding the trailhead is difficult as it’s not labeled from the road. Take the Inside North Fork Road to north of Dutch Creek. At the sharp bend in the road to the left, a faint trail can be found. Once on the trail for about 20 feet, you’ll encounter a sign about entering bear country letting you know you’re on the right trail. This trail is infrequently maintained, so much downfall and washed away trail are found and some route finding may be necessary.

 

The trail starts through burned forest where it cruises on a fairly level trail gradually gaining about 1,000 feet in 7 miles. After a bit of downfall and burned trees, the trail begins to alternate back and forth between burned and unburned forest. It crosses some smaller feeder creeks, then you reach a section where Dutch Creek has commandeered the trail making for a rutted out mess to find the trail and a way around it.

 

From here, the trail begins to gain elevation in earnest switching back and forth up through some cliffs until you reach the basin where the trail levels out. From here, the hiking is pleasant through a wonderful alpine section.

 

The lake is reached at the head of the basin. Here, it is nestled at the base of Longfellow Peak at the head and flanked by Dutch and Camas ridges. This is one of those places that truly feels wild as you know that only a small subset of people explore this area.

 

In the burned sections, expect to see geraniums and fireweed in season while the forest will have beargrass and arnica. In the upper alpine section, expect more beargrass and large amounts of thimbleberry, alder and subalpine fir. A variety of fauna may be found here from deer to bear.

Logging Lake Trail “A wooded trail to quiet lakes nestled beneath wooded ridges.”

 

The trail to Logging Lake and further to Grace Lake starts from the Inside North Fork Road, usually accessed from the Polebridge entrance due to the road being closed from the Fish Creek side. The trailhead is found just north of Logging Creek before crossing the bridge.

 

The trail begins in an older stand of trees in a lush forest, but a little ways in, bounces out to an older burn where it opens up. It doesn’t spend time very close to Logging Creek, but as the trail climbs a hillside, you get views looking down onto the creek and out to a more recent burn with stands of silver trees.

 

From here, the trail traverses a hillside, gaining some of the scant elevation found on the trail. It continues along the sparse trees, then older stands of trees, bouncing back and forth a few times and coming close to Logging Creek, before diving into the older stand of trees for the rest of the trip.

 

The trail parallels the lake for a bit before you actually get to see it. A spur trail for the Logging Lake patrol cabin is your first opportunity to see the lake. It’s a long, beautiful lake tucked beneath a wooded ridge. There isn’t much of a shore to speak of as the trees and vegetation come right up to the waters edge. A second opportunity to see the lake is at the Logging Lake Foot Campground if you take that spur trail.

 

From there, the trail continues away from the lake, eventually following along its shores, then alternating from along the shoreline to up in the trees until it hits the Adair Campground. From there, it heads into the trees until just before the patrol cabin at the head of the lake, then wraps towards the head of the lake, before climbing up through the trees gaining some elevation as it heads towards Grace Lake.

 

The forest changes a bit as it hugs the mountainside and gains a couple hundred feet of elevation. Moss hangs from the trees of the wetter forest. The trail traverses the hillside and drops slightly as it comes to the shores of the lovely Grace Lake which is tucked below the steep slopes of Mt. Geduhn. Views to the head of the lake are obscured, but the small lake is beautiful and remote.

 

The trail is incredibly muddy in the spring and buggy into early summer. The trail makes for a great trail as summer fades into the fall.

 

Many forest flowers such as trillium, orchids, arnica, and arrowleaf balsamroot. Deer, elk, and bear are all possible, although the proliferation of treed hiking obscures views so seeing animals is pretty limited. Forest birding is great between older stands of trees and burn areas with meadows coupled with creeks and lakes.

Quartz Creek Trail “A remote trail along a creek that bounces between forests and meadows.”

 

The trailhead is found on the Inside North Fork Road between Polebridge and Logging Lake. It is less traveled and receives less maintenance than most of Glacier’s other trails, so be aware that it may have more downfall and be a bit more overgrown.

 

The trail starts out in the open meadows of the North Fork area with younger lodgepole pines sprouting up. It’s an old road and the travel is easy. You are near the creek, but aren’t right alongside it. You come to a large meadow with a slightly newer house which is one of the original homestead properties in the park. From here, the trail becomes singletrack and spends more time in forests.

 

You eventually come to a crossing of Quartz Creek. In the spring, during runoff, the creek can be dangerous to ford, so make sure you check the trail status report or with a ranger. From here, you follow up the creek on the east side where it goes through more open forests and smaller meadows until you reach the campground at Lower Quartz Lake and the Quartz Lake Loop trail.

 

Forest flowers and great flowers in the meadows in spring and early summer such as geraniums. Expect to see small forest birds, hawks, and small mammals. Deer, elk and, to a lesser extent, bear can be found in this area.
