Sperry Chalet & Granite Park Chalet to Offer Trailhead Shuttle Service

The managers for the Sperry and Granite Park Chalets have recently announced that they will be offering trailhead shuttle service this upcoming season. The new service is being offered as a result of the Going-to-the-Sun Road's increasing congestion. Here's the announcement as published on the Sperry Chalet website:
Starting this summer we are planning a trailhead shuttle service for chalet guests. Traveling and parking along Going to the Sun Road is becoming more and more challenging for backcountry adventurers, let us help you with a ride from your hotel to the trailhead and back again.

Many of the details about the chalet shuttle are still being planned out, but we do know that the fares will be low and reasonable. Shuttle service will be by reservation. Dropoff and pickup can be arranged for all chalet trailheads along Going to the Sun Road. And we can provide overnight parking for your vehicle in the West Glacier area.

We will offer morning pick ups for chalet guests from hotels near West Glacier and Apgar, and drive you to the chalet trailhead. Dropoffs include the Sperry Trail at Lake McDonald Lodge, the Loop Trail at the Loop, and the Highline Trail at Logan Pass.

East side service to the Gunsight Pass trail at Jackson Glacier Overlook and the east entrance at St. Mary will also be available with an additional mileage fee.

In the afternoon on the day you depart, we can meet you at the trailhead and deliver you back to your hotel or vehicle.

If a ride to the trail is something that can help you with your chalet adventure this summer, call or Email the reservation office to make arrangements.

Happy Hiking
