Although it’s a “bike path,” there aren’t many bikers on the Fish Creek Path in February.

You’re more likely to run into someone on snowshoes or skis.

Starting near Apgar in Glacier National Park, the Fish Creek Bike Path is a great place to get in a short winter adventure.

At the intersection of the Camus and Grist roads, just west of the Apgar Village, the bike path is about a mile long and winds through the thick forest along Lake McDonald.

Along the way you’ll pass private cabins and an historic storage building. About a mile from the parking lot, the trail joins the Fish Creek Campground Road, which is closed during the winter.

From there it’s about one-third of a mile to the campground and the road provides some stunning views of the lake and surrounding mountains.

Although it’s not groomed, the path is well traveled and you’re sure to run into people along the way.

There is a $15 park entrance fee for a seven-day vehicle pass.
