This road starts at the bottom end of Lake McDonald near Apgar, MT and winds North up to the top at 6,650 feet (I think) which you reach after 30 or so miles and then goes over the top, which is the Continental Divide for another 20 miles or so to Swiftcurrent, MT. It is one of the pretties drives... More

Unspoiled and wonderful. Some parts of this road are not for the timid! You have to do this at least once.

Wow what a trip, we did it in early Nov and had glorious weather and visibility. the road was open to Logan Pass, so missed the last 15 miles (oh well an excuse to come back) Every bend was a whole new view, never disappointing. I found the drive ok, but it was also not busy so that meant we... More

A beautiful drive like no other in the US. It is an engineering marvel and a glorious experience! Take your time, stop along the way to really take in the scenery and bring a good camera!

The greatest disappointment for Going to the Sun road in Montana is the short time period it is open for through traffic. I've missed out on a couple of return trips now due to the the amount of snow they receive and the time it takes to get the road open. Otherwise, the area is simply beautiful. It is an... More

Glacier National Park is the hidden gem of the National Park Service. Since the park is largely closed for much of the year due to snow, it isn't visited as much as some parks, but the scenery here is absolutely transcendent. Going-to-the-Sun Road is one of the most beautiful - if sometimes harrowing - drives in America. Mountains, waterfalls, and... More

We drove the "Going to the sun road" travelling from Waterton Lakes in Canada down to Whitefish Montana. The scenery is spectacular and there are some fantastic hiking trails. I can't remember the name of the trail but it led up a lot of wooden stairs to a beautiful "hidden" lake and I believe the trail head was at the... More
