No matter where in the world you're coming from, we can help you figure out the easiest way to get to the Whitefish Bike Retreat. If you are coming from overseas, across the border, another state or from downtown Whitefish, our WBR staff will help you get here with all your gear!
The Amtrak stops in Whitefish as part of the Empire Builder Route traveling West and East. It is an easy and affordable way to reach the Whitefish area with your bike and gear. There are train cars on this route where you can easily roll your bike onto the train and put it in a special bike rack compartment, so there's no need to box up your bike. Call Amtrak for pricing and details at 406-862-2268. The video above shows how easy it is to use the train to get to WBR.
Fly into Kalispell (FCA). Give us a call to let us know your flight details at least a week before your arrival so we can schedule a shuttle pickup. Our shuttle service picks you up when you need us, and will get you out to WBR to settle into your room or campsite.
Head out from Whitefish on Hwy 93 towards Roosville. At milepost 135 (about 6.5 miles from downtown Whitefish) turn RIGHT onto Beaver Lake Road. Go 1.4 miles up the gravel road and turn RIGHT just past our mailbox. Proceed up the road and follow the signs to our office to check-in.

From downtown Whitefish, you can ride a bike path out of town towards Roosville along Hwy 93. Follow the signs to the Lion Mountain trailhead for the Whitefish Trail (dirt road that parallels Hwy 93). Ride onto the Whitefish Trail and stay on the main trail until the trail junction for the Beaver Lake Trailhead on the Southern Loop. Take the LEFT split at this intersection and ride about .5 miles to the intersection with WBR Connector trail (log bench and sign on you left). Take a LEFT off the main Whitefish Trail into WBR and follow our signs to the Office to checkin. You can find a map of the Whitefish Trail here.

Guests will need to arrange package drop-off or pick-up with the shipping company and then contact WBR staff for delivery or pick-up dates.
We offer free town shuttles that run 3 times a day between WBR and Glacier Cyclery for our guests.
The shuttles only run when there are scheduled pick-ups or drop-offs so please call our office for run times and to reserve a spot in advance.
