Going-to-the-Sun Road: Montana
Distance – 50 miles, 1 hour

Remote and accessible solely in summer, this epic 50-mile stretch is a holy grail for serious riders. The up-and-down thriller has more twists and turns than a soap opera drama.

It transcends Glacier National Park, climbing 3,000 feet from Lake McDonald to the 6,646-foot summit at Logan Pass. Stop en route at Jackson Glacier Overlook to take in the jaw-dropping views.

Planning: Take binoculars and stop to spot bighorn sheep and mountain goats. Check the weather before setting out.
