For more than two decades, the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route has fulfilled the dreams of cyclists looking for the ultimate off-road adventure!

You’ll tackle over 300 beautiful miles along the entire 3,000-mile route, which traces the spine of the Rocky Mountains from Jasper, Alberta, to Antelope Wells, New Mexico. Beautiful Whitefish is your starting point, but your ride through the deep woods of northwest Montana with stunning views will take you to Helena, Montana’s capital city, before a return shuttle to Whitefish. Along the way, we’ll stop through small Montana towns like Seeley Lake and Ovando, known for their hospitality towards cyclists.
