In our research about Glacier Park, we kept reading comments indicating that this road must be the most beautiful road in North America. I totally agree. It is an architectural marvel-how could it have been built in these mountains back in the 20's or whenever it was built? Parts of it are so narrow as to be gleefully scary. No... More

Fantastic views along this route - be warned that it is closed during the winter and the exact date of opening is variable so check before you go. One of the best things to do is drive up to the top in the middle of the night for a good view of the stars.

This road has plenty of pull outs so that you can stop and take pictures. You also see so many mountains, flowers, trees, and waterfalls.

Beautiful drive. Make sure to stop at points of interest to hike! We traveled with three teenages and a great time was had by all.

What a great ride on the bike! Been looking forward to it for awhile and it did NOT disappoint. Weather was great, the roads were excellent (lots of new pavement on there now) and, heck, going down the west side, I just turned the bike off and coasted down! Lots of very scenic views and they've done a good job... More

Due to a forest fire the road was closed at the weeping wall so we could not make the whole trip. We rode it on a motorcycle and it was a beautiful ride but a little nerve racking. Plenty of room so just take your time and enjoy. The driver misses out on a lot of the views so stopping... More

Part of Glacier park is driving the road up and over. No trailers over 21' allowed. Bikes not allowed between 11-4. Currently closed as of mid July 2015 at milepost 39 due to forest fire. Can drive to turn around and it is still worth the trip.

Spectacular views on a breath-taking road that is narrow with steep drops beside the road. We drove to Logan Pass on a cloudy day and then came back on a clear morning, the day the road was closed in the afternoon due to the fire.

Touring Glacier National Park and especially traveling on the Going to the Sun Road was one incredible trip. The Going to the Sun Road is not for anyone afraid of heights, for the road hugs the side of the mountain with steep cliffs on one side and no guard rails except for some large rocks here and there. The scenery... More
