This is probably the MOST scenic road I have ever driven. Words simply cannot convey the beauty and majesty of this place. The hiking is wonderful and we saw a lot of wildlife along the way. I cannot wait to return to Glacier - THE best National Park I have seen so far.

The most amazing road ever! If this area and drive is not on a list of yours, then you need to put it on there and go soon. There was so much to see and do on GTSR. The rangers and workers in the area were all very friendly and knowledgeable. We camped for a couple nights in the park... More

Native Americans worshiped this land for a reason. Great example of true beauty for when people return to their lives of over consumption and pollution. This drive will take your breath away multiple times. Vertigo people beware. Along the ride you will see opportunities for animal sightings and hiking trails. Do not miss a chance to experience how pure the... More

There are no ifs or ands about this place. Purely majestic. I can say that there are a lot of visitors/tourists, but if you want to "travel your way past them" as i say, you just hike the hardest part so you can get some alone time. Walking out to see these snow capped mountains in the middle of september... More

Just amazing when you think about how this road was even built. The driver definitely can't look away and must focus on driving because this road is crazy! The views are unbelievable. I just can't believe anyone would give this road a 1 star or anything below a 5 really. Of course you never know how the weather will be!... More

The snow was still piled high at the the pass in late June and what a view. There is nothing that I have seen that rivals the view down into the valley from Logan' Pass.

The drive was, in simple terms, amazing. I had my camera out the entire time, you are surrounded by 360 degrees of outstanding views. We even managed to see some mountain goats! I would recommend this drive, and I can't wait to take it on again in the near future.

This is one of the most beautiful drives in the US and makes the trip to Glacier National Park worth it even if you don't hike. We were very fortunate that we were able to see mountain sheep at the pass. The drive much easier than many other mountain drives so don't let the name frighten you. It is well... More

No words can describe the beauty of this drive. You are held hostage by the sheer wonder of this mountain side road. If you ever have the oppurtunity to drive this, do so! You will be so glad you did!
