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.

On our last day of an 8 day visit to Glacier National Park we planned on heading out of the park on the Going to the Sun Road. It is a narrow road so if you are driving you will not be able to look much, with 2 people you can switch drivers on the way thru to allow both... More

We drive from West Glacier to Logan Pass one day then another day drove from St. Mary to Logan Pass. The West Glacier route was hairier in terms of tight curves and narrow roadways. The views are phenomenal from either side. Go either early in the morning (before 10am) or after 3-4pm when the crowds aren't as heavy and you... More

You will never, ever forget having traveled this 52-mile National Historic Engineering Landmark running through Glacier National Park. Winding up and over Logan Pass and the Continental Divide at 6600+ feet, you will view jaw-dropping scenery that is staggering in both beauty and scale. You will see frozen waterfalls and, of course, glaciers. You will drive into and above some... More

This road is simply amazing! Do NOT miss this drive! The mountains are stunning and there are so many lookouts to view them! We drove along this road the second time we visited this park, since when we were there before, snow had closed the road, and we were not disappointed! Everywhere you look there is something spectacular to see.... More

We absolutely had a wonderful vacation! Going to the sun road was so beautiful. We started at the st marys entrance and took a hike to st marys falls, recommend this hike very short and if you keep going on this trail you will also see Virginia falls, both just beautiful! Drive to logans pass, avalanche creek, Johns lake loop... More

I've driven mountain roads all over North America, New Zealand and the Swiss Alps. Going to the Sun Highway is the best there is,. Incredible scenery, impressive and historic road architecture. Be prepared to take your time, stop often to soak up the views. And if you are sensitive about heights or exposure, think twice about this trip. Fortunately, most... More

See this road and all its glory! Whether you drive or take a Red Bus Tour, don't miss this drive! The views of the glaciers, waterfalls, and mountain vistas is worth the hairpin curves and elevation increase!

Plan on making this a full day trip as there are many locations to see. Be sure to stop over at Avalanche Lake, Hidden Lake and Logan's Pass, too.
