Secret Season colors light up Glacier National Park, a short 25-minute drive from the Inn

SPRING AND FALL -
THE SECRET SEASONS

Why not try a Montana “secret season” adventure?
In Autumn, mountainsides of bright yellows and greens and reds compliment crisp, clear days. The trails and roads and rivers in Glacier National Park and around Whitefish are yours to explore and enjoy under a bluebird sky, after the summer visitors have departed.
In Spring, take in the scent of cedars and the subtle variations in the many shades of green as you ride bicycles, or walk on the Going to the Sun Road in Glacier National Park, when cars are not yet permitted.
DISTINCTION

Your own Going–To–The–Sun Road

In springtime, the Going–To–The–Sun Road is open exclusively to bikers and walkers. Savor the scenery at a slower pace on this and many other cycling opportunities in the area.

Glacier Wildflowers

Be the first to spot early–season Glacier Lilies and Trillium wildflowers as you picnic in old–growth forests near waterfalls and splashing cascades.
