Going-to-the-Sun Road in Glacier National Park is a cyclist's paradise. Here's why: The smoothly paved one-way route to heaven (its a gradual 3,000-foot ascent over 32 miles) is flanked by glacier-carved valleys, snow-capped peaks, and dramatic waterfalls under impossibly blue skies. New to Trek Travel this year, this special trip guides you through narrow, 180-degree switchbacks with peace of mind (just steer clear of mountain goats and street-crossing bear cubs). While out there, discover other magical parts of the park, which turns 100 along with America's National Park service this year, as well as Montana itself, including Flathead Valley, just west of the Continental Divide and home to charming mountain resort towns, like Whitefish.
