We were lucky this trip that the Going to the Sun road had just opened! 😁
The drive up the mountain is fantastic. Waterfalls and wildlife are abundant. It was truly beautiful!!
We were there mid June and it was cold! We loved the weather!...More
Ge here early or plan to park down or uproad and walk. Parking lot fills up by 7:30am, so plan accordingly. We missed on day 1, got up earlier on day 2 and got a spot. Take the hikes, see critters. We saw grizzlies, mountain...More
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

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.
