The free shuttle bus is great. We parked at Apgar every day (west side), and never had a problem with parking. The other stops along the way have parking but you need to go EARLY to get a parking space. My only comment is that the free shuttle DOES NOT STOP at all the "photo" locations along the road. You...

If you are not a hiker this is the best way to see the park. Plan on 1.5-2 hours just for the drive plus your stop time. The shuttle may be a better choice for those that are not sure of their vehicle size or are leery of heights. Sports car drivers don't expect much room to enjoy the curves.... More

We began on the West side of the Going-to-the-Sun Road and it took us almost all day to get to the East side - and we were totally delighted with the wonderful sights along the way. Great scenery, places to stop and get a meal or a cold drink, places to stop and have a quick picnic, places to stop... More

This road is indeed an engineering marvel. Before going try to read up on how it was built so you can really appreciate it. Originally, we were going to use the shuttle but after finding out that it didn't stop at lake Macdonald lodge until 930, we decided to drive it ourself. (Special thanks to Melanie at the camp store... More

This awesome feat of engineering is a MUST for anyone visiting Glacier Nat'l Park. It's breath-taking. Be sure to take the free shuttle from the St Mary Visitor Center, so you'll be free to snap pictures. Recent wildfires were evident, but the overall scope of the scenery will make your head spin. This is an essential part of any visit... More

It really is the Crown of the Continent. Visit here is August of 2015, took a 21 ft RV...let me tell you, 21 feet is the limit! Not that it's too scary, but because every Park Ranger will ask you about the length...we even had one take out a tape measure. :) The views are amazing...we even saw a Grizzly... More

A must do and see, BUT, do not drive it yourself, take a tour--we did the Red Bus tour--open top -convertible- red car/bus that holds about 16 people, AWESOME! Plan on 4 hours minimum to take it beginning to end. Very Steep. Beautiful scenery. If you are afraid of heights, sit on the inside..LOL. We visited during the fores in... More
