We took the red bus tour from st. Mary's to Logan pass. That was a half day tour. The weather was picture perfect so the driver pulled back the top and we were able to view spectacular mountains all the way to the top, which if you were in a covered vehicle, you could not see. The driver gave us... More

Scenic but a bit scarey. We made the trip the first time on the red bus and then drove it ourselves the next day. We got on the road by 7 am so that there would be fewer cars meeting us. That worked well - not as challenging and we were at Logan Pass by 8:30 am.

Stop on occasion at the lookouts so that you can fully appreciate the picturesque beauty. A friend went in late June and the road was still closed. Late August and early September was so perfect since the crowds were not there. Even on Labor Day weekend, it was quite manageable. The variety along the roadway of elevation change, mountains, waterfalls,... More

This 50 mile road is slow and very scenic. The portion in the hairpin turn area is narrow with rock walls that occasionally bulge out into the road. Logan's pass is lovely ..... IF you can get a parking spot. I wish day-hikers would take the shuttle rather than consume a parking spot all day long. Lake McDonald and Lake... More

The half-day Red Bus is the best way to see this road. We preferred the bus that leaves from West Glacier and goes to Logan Pass. The views are better from the open top. The East Glacier side has less impressive views.

The construction work slow you down The road is beautiful, but the hikes from it are even more incredible. It is a shame to come just for the road.

I'm a bit skittish when it comes to mountain drives, but we're in Glacier and we had to drive this. Unfortunately there was a snow storm the night before our visit so the road was closed at Logan Pass. We were not able to drive the entire road. The road has many turns and high cliffs, but the sections where... More

First - RED BUS themselves - Cute and Historic yes, canvas tops fold back to allow views of tall peaks. Drivers decide if the top is open. Some people wanted the top up some didn’t, depending on where they sat and who had the good seats etc. The ones who did not want the top down had the best seats... More

This is a drive that everyone should experience! If this drive doesn't make you feel proud of this beautiful country we live in, I don't know what will!

We took the Going to the Sun Road to get to Apgar Camp ground. The scenery was stunning and definitely a must-see if you're in the area. It is however and extremely narrow road with lots of twists and turns. It's a slow drive because you are dodging people taking photos, cars pulled to the side, motorcyclists going slow on... More
