I realize it's summer and families are enjoying their vacation at Glacier (we are tying to too) but it is frustrating when people park where they shouldn't on the Go to the Sun Road, and then walk alongside the narrow roads to get where they want when cars are trying to get through. Many of the pull offs were full... More

This drive has the most spectacular scenery I have ever seen. Every turn brought more breathtaking views than I could have hoped for. Do not pass up an opportunity to take this trip. Take your time, get out at every opportunity and soak it all in. Pictures cannot do it justice!

Driving going to the sun road is not for the faint of heart. It is the most beautiful drive I have been on in the entire country. The views are breathtaking and you find yourself stopping around most every bend on one of the available pull offs to take pictures of every angle. Waterfalls, wildlife, spectacular sunsets, snowcapped mountains, etc.... More

A beautiful drive with amazing waterfalls and great scenery. And if you are lucky you may get to see some mountain goats. Don't go before July as the road up may not be open yet. A truly stunning drive.

I can’t say enough about the majestic scenery of Glacier National Park. The Going-to-the Sun Road was built in late 1920’s to open the park up the general public. It is truly an engineering marvel and I can’t imagine how they did it with the technology of the time. The views are breath-taking, but be prepared, as the road is... More

This road added gray hairs, not so much the road itself but the tourist drivers not focusing their attention to the road. There are parts of this road where if you want to sight see, have someone else do the driving. I have traveled to the Himalayas, this road is comparable to some of the roads there. The scenery is...

100 degrees in Kalispell yesterday, 50 degrees this morning. What a place, and it's JULY! GNP...The views, the topography, the sheer awesomeness of nature, marginally tamed by man. What we drive on in the summer, is buried by as much as 80' of snow in the winter. We're going to return in the fall when the traffic is lighter.

There are no words to describe the views you will see along the entire road. Depending on the time of the year, you will have a nice mix of snow and greenery. We drove the road the middle of June and felt blessed. Our previous visits the road was blocked with snow until the end of June, July 4th weekend.... More
