From the forests to the treeless altitude at Logan Pass. Absolutely awesome vistas. Grand views at every turn. Early morning was not so crowded (Early September). Logan Pass parking fills quickly. Get there and enjoy a hike and relax.

The going-to-the-Sun road is an amazing, once of a kind experience. The road is an amazing marvel of engineering with beautiful views abound. An absolute must see.

Put this on your bucket list NOW! Saw this in 1966 and again this year. Just as gorgeous. We hit it in September. Crowds were as expected but manageable.

This road takes you from the floor of the basin up into the mountains where you're up with the clouds. The road has some great pullouts and exposes you to some spectacular views.

This is an absolute must if you are at Glacier. Parking very limited. Take shuttle in summer. Or better pay to take the Big Red Bus. Well worth the money

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.

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
