    A trip to Glacier. Riding in Whitefish?

    Wife and I are road tripping from Portland to Glacier next week. Wife came across a place called Whitefish Bike Retreat. Is there enough XC/trail/am riding in the area to keep us busy for a few days?

    Bike retreat is a nice set up and those false can help steer you toward riding in the area

    Also the 4 days in Whitefish thread has some addl links and advice

    Yep, my wife and I spend two nights at the retreat in June. The first day that we arrived we did a quick 12 mile loop on Whitefish Trail south of the retreat then goofed off on the skills/flow trails around camp for a little while. The next day we did a 20 mile stacked-loop on the Whitefish Trail north of the retreat followed by more laps on the flow trail.

    On the drive home we stopped and rode (and walked) an "intermediate" trail at nearby Spencer Mtn. You could ride to that area from the retreat using the Whitefish trail too.

    They have a free shuttle to-from town and you could ride the Whitefish trail into town and catch a lift back. Or set up a custom shuttle (about $30 IIRC) to just about anywhere.
