Large car park half way along GTSSR, and the starting point for many fabulous trails.
You may have to drive around the car park a few times before a space opens up, but there is sufficient movement of people for this to happen throughout the...More
Parking at the Visitor’s Center during the peak months is at a premium so you need to get there by at least 7 am or earlier. I got there around 7 and the lot was already 3/4 full. You can also take the shuttles as...More
Be sure to take the pass from the west entrance, it is simply breathtaking. Highly recommend taking the shuttle if they are available, you will enjoy it more. The road is very narrow! If you are going to the top in the middle of September,...More
This is a favorite destination and stopping point on the Going to the Sun Road. There is visitors center that is compact with restrooms. Several trails originate here. The parking lot reportedly fills early, but in late September, this was not a problem. The lot...More
When I was coming back down the hiking trail at the end of the hike I saw rangers carrying oxygen, I wondered if they were looking for me as this was one tough hike! At the top most part of the hike is a crystal...More
We came into Glacier National Park from the east because the west entrance of Going To the Sun Road was closed due to fires. So I can only say the drive from the East entrance was beautiful and the views are spectacular! We arrived at...More
I would suggest that you arrive here early in the morning with regards to parking. We visited in the off season and by the time we actually got back to our car there were wars in the parking lot of spots. This was the most...More
Around an hour of driving on a winding “Road to the Sun” from either Apgar or St Mary to Logan Pass brings you to the area of the continental divide and a spectacular view of the surrounding peaks and valleys. There are days that Logan...More
We traveled to Logan Pass to be able to drive a portion of the Going to the Sun Road and to take a hike off the top. Well, from the top, the views are wonderful. In all directions. What so amazes me about Glacier National...More

2017 we visited Glacier the last week of June. GTS road was “closed” in the middle- we could drive on it up west passed Lake McDonald and then you had to turn around. From the east it was closed right before Logan’s pass. We could not access Logan’s pass or hidden lake. It was not possible. This middle section of GTS road is the most magnificent drive- we went back a few weeks ago here in August 2018 just to see what we missed the year before. That being said- 2017 with the closures- we took the time to explore the outer parts of the park and it was still magnificent. Many Glacier/Two Medicine/St Mary’s on the east side are more beautiful than most of what we’ve seen at other National Parks in the U.S. We stayed on the west side, however with GTS road closed we had to drive the southern road around the park.......so it took 2 hours just to get to the east side. So- if you go in early June- try to stay on the east side as that is where the prettiest parts are and the most things to do.
We will be visiting GNP Sept 7-12. From what I have heard the park shuttles stop running for the season a few days before that. Does anyone have any suggestions on local taxi/uber or shuttle services for Sept 8? We will have a rental car, but we will need a ride from Many Glacier to Logan Pass so that we can hike the Highline to Swiftcurrent and back to Many Glacier. Any feedback is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!

Back up plans? (2 Replies)
I'm sort of at a loss for how to rearrange or make back up plans due to the fire. We are due to arrive late on August 23rd and stay 3 nights, 2 at St. Mary Campground and one at Fish Creek. We will be coming down from Banff and leaving to drive back towards Seattle. It's still 3 weeks away, and I'm hoping that the fire is contained and GTTSR is open by then, but I want to have a backup plan just in case. Our plan was: Day 0 (23rd) - Arrive late and set up camp Day 1 (24th) - Grinnell...More

I personally like your option #2. It will be more relaxed and the next day, you can combine the Highline as an in-and-out hike from the Logan Summit to Haystack and back...its the middle and upper parts of the Highline that are so spectacular and the trail looks different from each direction. You don't need to do the entire trail and then worry about shuttles etc. The lower part from the Loop is not as nice and a harder slog especially going uphill. It would be a great hike and you could...More
trail maps (7 Replies)
what are your recommendations for trail maps? I was wondering if I should try and gets some online, or just pick them up in town somewhere... We are staying near east Glacier, and are planning day hikes of two medicine and Logan pass.

Check out that guy's YouTube channel, too. It helped me plan which hikes to do next week.
