Drive east-bound in afternoon, west-bound in morning to avoid sun glare and get better lighting. East-bound is on outside for most of the higher/closer turns, but if you were comfortable on the PCH in California, you'll be fine here. Use shuttles - efficient and can savor the views more. Use 2nd gear, not brakes where you can. Aug 23-29 for... More

First of all if your vehicle is over 21 feet, you will not be allowed to complete the drive over Logan's Pass! That is for a very good reason, the highway is extremely narrow with some very sharp switch backs and curves! The drive which is around 50 miles will likely take you 3 hrs because on most of the...

Must be a slow drive to be appreciated and there are lots of places to pull off and stand in awe. It is a good road for motorcycles but be aware of narrow areas where vehicles 'belly' out. One of the most beautiful mountain drives I know.

Yes, there are scary spots with long drop offs, so I had to really keep my eyes on the road, but we stopped often so the I could take in the views. There were frequent pull out areas so that was nice. The only drawback was the road construction on the East end of the part which caused delays and... More

We were there the day the road opened this year, July 3. It was packed with visitors but amazing. The views are incredible. Travel the road west to east for the most amazing views. East of Logan Pass is still pretty but I wish we would have gone back down the west side. I'd always heard about Glacier but it... More

You will see things that are awesome. Take you time and enjoy each pull off and stop opportunity. Construction on the east side, but not a big deal.

The single most amazing thing we've ever seen. Terrifying to drive at parts, but oh so worth it. This road takes 2.5 hours ONE WAY and is the only direct way from east to west glacier. The alternative is to leave the park and drive around (2hr). So, if you are staying on one side and want to hike on... More

Despite the constant construction and the occasional traffic jams at turnouts and vistas this is truly an awesome drive. Even after just traveling through stunning Banff and Jasper in Canada this drive rates up there with them in terms of world class scenery.

Visited in August and the weather was perfect. Went swimming (freezing water), hiking, picture taking, and relaxing all on this road. The only way to see the park for its beauty. Entering from St. Mary you will hit construction so your car will be filthy.
