Routes / Re: Northern Tier Parking

Marias is a "plan B" in case Glacier doesn't open. Yes, I have all the ACA maps but there is nothing on GTS unless the park is open. On Marias there are a few rustic hotels and campgrounds. I just wanted to do a tour, nothing is really critical. And I live in Spokane so Whitefish is a good starting point on the ACA Northern Tier. I want to do an out-and-back doing 30+miles a day. I was thinking two days of riding, rest, two days back. Any ideas? How about going to Eureka, what is there? It would be a nice relaxed 2-day trip and it is on the Northern Tier

Thanks, I booked a hotel stay and they told me they have an "extended" parking area that they charge $30 for. The lady said that there isn't a whole lot of parking in Whitefish. So that's settled.

Now, Does anyone about camping in the Northern Tier route after Whitefish? We are planning to the Marias pass route, as Glacier is closed right now and in addition, that route seems less steep.

Appreciate the help!

This will be my first time doing an unsupported tour. My GF and I are training and we have the equipment (inherited from Backpacking) I live in Spokane, WA and I would like to do some riding in the Northern Tier. I was thinking of going to Whitefish, MT. and then ride east, maybe to Glacier. Or wherever or however we feel. I thought about taking Amtrak to Whitefish, but the trains only take like 6 bikes per train unless you box them. The I realize I am only 4 hours away by car. The question is: are there safe spots to park longterm in Whitefish? For those who have done the route, opinions?
