I lived next to The Park for 12 years and have been over Going to the Sun about 60 times. It's the most gorgeous place in the lower 48 states, without doubt. Go after school starts and the traffic will be cut by 80%

If you are in the área, be sure to take this road. I drove it but there tour busses that make the trip routinely. The road and views are spectacular!

Going to the Sun Road was the most beautiful drive I have ever taken. The falls and the lakes were a constant wonder. I am a very amateur photographer but loved the wildflowers there. My son loved the falls and the short trails to get up to some and down to the lakes. e are not hikers but there were... More

In case you were wondering, I thought it was a wonderful drive. The views were stunning and although we happened to pick a cloudy day with drizzle it was till quite amazing. Sometimes the views were obscured, but at other times the sun would burst through and the rays would light up the peaks and valleys below while cloud caressed... More

The views are amazing, make sure you stop alot and have plenty of room on your camera. Also stop along the water on the west end of the road, I got an empty spot and spent an hour just relaxing watching the water

One of the most amazing drives one will ever make. Very steep drop offs, plus the high altitude make it quite exhilarating! Nice area to walk and take a break at the peak of the drive. If you exit the park to the east the drive is not real interesting.

This is a spectacular drive. You rise up above the valley floor on a steep, curvy mountain road. All the way, you are treated to vistas of breathtaking mountain beauty. Also be prepared to see lots of wildlife. We had close encounters with mountain goats, bighorn sheep, mule deer as well; as a grizzly bear and her three cubs. The... More

If you're anywhere near Glacier between July 1 and Sept. 15, you MUST drive this road. It is spectaular, scenic and simply breathtaking. The closest I've ever seen anything like it is the Swiss Alps. I try to do it at least once a year, now that I live in Montana. But it's worth a drive across country, witnessed by... More

Literally? It's name sake says it all. It's like going to the Sun. First of all, let me say that I'm glad I was not driving, since I am afraid of heights. A few things to remember when you take this road: (1) It is narrow (2) It is a National Park (3) Lots of other vehicles on the road... More
