... prepare you for this. No pictures can do it justice. Simply breathtaking, I would recommend taking the free shuttle (a fantastic service!) from Apgar or Avalanche Creek to Logan Pass first before driving it yourself. If you're driving, it's the only way you'll really see it. Plus it gives you an idea what you're in for when you do... More

The Going-to-the-Sun Road runs for about 50 miles from West Glacier to the eastern side. Driving 50 miles is not a big deal, but you will be spending endless hours exploring the beauty around the road, and so there is no point of talking about how long it would take for someone to drive from one end to another end...

There is no way to describe this road and the scenery around it- you have to experience it first hand. It is amazingly beautiful!

Wow! We had heard a lot about this road before taking our vacation. So we knew it would be a spectacular road. Pictures and descriptions fall short of truly conveying the beauty found at every curve on this spectacular road. Be sure to pack a lunch so you can poke along and enjoy all of the turnouts and hiking opportunities.... More

After a boat ride in Lake McDonald we continued on through the Going to the Sun Road. So many views and photo stops it provided a good return on the time spent. Currently as you get to the east side of the park there is construction going on for about 10 or 12 miles. We had to stop 3 times... More

We drove the entire route in one day including numerous stops for hiking and photography. The west glacier is far more lush and scenic than the east side is. Some of the route is fairly narrow and not well protected. Not a great option if you are afraid of heights. If you are going to go into Two Medicine Lake,... More

This is one of the most incredible rides I have ever experienced. Excuse me, it IS the most incridble ride I have ever taken. The scenery was unbelievably beautiful. Go from the west side of the park to the east. Go early in the morning before they crowds start. Make sure that you have a GOOD camera, not some little... More

We have just returned from a trip to East Glacier National Park and to Waterton National Park in Alberta, Canada. Going to the Sun Road is AMAZING. Ever turn you make reveals something more beautiful. We spent 8 hours driving the Going to the Sun Road. We were able, in that time to see the entire park, but we did... More

This road is amazing, and winds it's way from the valley below around 3300 feet in elevation up to Logan Pass at the continental divide at around 6600 ft. The craftsmanship and effort involved I the 10 year construction of this amazing stretch is clearly seen. Although a destination of it's own, this is the road that takes you to... More

Scenery was beyond beautiful but the construction on the east side was a mess. Long waits for the pilot cars. From Logan Pass west was awesome and we went over and over.
