If you visit Glacier National Park, you must do the Going-to-the-Sun Road. Either on a Red Bus tour or drive it yourself. Take time to stop at pull offs and enjoy the beautiful scenery.

What a road... terrifying beauty and my hands got sweatier as we went up higher and higher... I am glad those rocks were put along the side.. it was a drop off. The men that made that road must have had goats blood in them! What a view..

The park is beautiful. Fun places to park and camp in RVs and Tents. We met many nice people mainly while we were stuck in traffic on that terrifying 2 lane rd! It's fun but not those with anxiety about heights. Beautiful views of the mountains and lakes, waterfalls.

I think this may be the most beautiful place I have ever been. The road in itself is an engineering marvel - it literally is built into the side of the mountains. The mountains looks like something you would imagine seeing in Switzerland. There are waterfalls around almost every turn, the road is designed to have the waterfalls built into... More

parts of this road are currently under construction...... The views are amazing,but beware,if you are afraid of heights! The road is well- maintained and it has two lanes,but you will be very close to the "abyss". We were there in October,so it wasn't too crowded.I can only imagine what a bumper- to -bumper experience this might be in high season.

This is such a beautiful drive. Breathtaking views of the Rockies, crystal clear glacial rivers, streams, lakes and waterfalls. Make sure you stop and have a swim.

Going-to-the-Sun-Road to me is the second most beautiful road that I've ever been on after the California Coastal Highway (Route 1). It is absolutely amazing. Lots of breathtaking views and frequent scenic stops. Grab the park News Paper and the Park Map. It contains all the checkpoints and gives a lot of information about each stop. You may then decide...
