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.

Road was closed our whole visit due to late snowfall. Opened just in time for us to cross back to the west. We were SO glad because it was the climax of our trip. We headed home that day!

It had been a couple years since our last trip on the Going-to-the-sun highway. Nothing much has changed and it is still just as spectacular. If you enter from the east it won't be long and you will be driving over a few miles of gravel as they make improvement to the road. Parking at some of the popular hiking... More

We made the trip back and forth 6-7 times over 8 days and it was beautiful (and different) every time. But if you're in this part of the country, you're already going to drive it. A tip for first timers, though: traffic peaks between 10-4 so if you're in a hurry to get to the other side, it's best to... More

Amazing vista's, waterfalls, rocky mountain big horn sheep & mountain goats. Views are different going up to Logan Pass than going back down. Don't miss this drive!

This spectacular drive is best done from east to west. Be sure to allow time for all the scenic pull outs and a long stop at Logan Pass to possibly see big-horned sheep. If you can, plan to spend more time in Glacier NP than just the time to drive the road. There is so much to do and see... More

My wife and I visited Glacier National Park in early July and attempted to drive the famous Going-to-the-Sun Road from both the east and west sides. Unfortunately, the top section of the road remained closed due to snow slides during our visit and we were never able to complete the drive. We'll go back for a return trip in the... More

As an employee based at Lake McDonald Lodge many years ago, we lived for our days off to enjoy the park around us. Going-to-the-Sun Road, and the trails around it, are some of the most spectacular natural wonders you will have the privilege to experience. You have to start by visiting 100 year old Lk McDonald Lodge, a cozy, rustic... More

I have a tremendous fear of heights and going on this road was a serious problem but my husband is excellent at making me feel at ease while driving this road. Nice and slow. Besides if you go to fast you might miss something awesome. Lane is very narrow and drop offs are major but once you get over that... More
