The Going-to-the-Sun Road in Glacier National Park is one of the most scenic and accessible in the world. Each spring in early May the National Park Service opens the road to hiker and biciclists exclusively. Some people think this quiet period is the most magical time to see the park before the road opens to cars in June.

This year's hiker/cyclist opening is May 5th.

To help you make the most of this bucket list opportunity I've gathered my favorite online resources to assist your planning efforts. Take a look, and if I've missed something you think would be a valuable add, contact me here.

First up, one of the best videos of Going-to-the-Sun Road I've ever seen. Brendan Leonard has done an exceptional job of documenting the experience. My favorite thing about this effort is it allows everyone to take the ride, regardless of location or ability.
