Typical,l well-travelled road with lots of sightseers, but the sights are so worth it. I would rank it up there as one of the must-do's in Glacier, especially if you're not able to do any of the hikes.

I have just shared the review of this activity at Glacier National Park. I could not recommend this activity any higher because we are limited to just 5 stars! If I could, I would rate this as a ten star activity. We used the Red Bus Tour provider. The cost of the trip was very reasonable when one considers that... More

We have been on this road four times and it never fails to impress!! With every twist and turn the changing vistas are beautiful to awe-inspiring! Starting with the pretty, sapphire blue Lake McDonald and ending with the plains at St Mary's Lake, this road and its majesty is simply an amazing work of nature. A little trivia for those... More

Returning from Vancouver Island BC to Calgary Alberta and read that #20 from Bellingham to Glacier was great. It was amazing and consistently beautiful. Overnight in Libby and on to Glacier National Park and Going to the Sun Road. 51 miles of unparalleled, breathtaking beauty. Took 41/2 hours because stopped at every viewpoint and a few places there wasn't a... More

This is an amazing stretch of road. The engineering is incredible and the view breathtaking. You simply cannot visit Glacier without going on this.

This is my second time to the park. Leave early. We got to the park around 8am and didn't see many critters. I wish we would have left earlier--I hear that's when the animals are out. There is not a boring stretch on this road but toward the top the views are spectacular. We started on the West side and... More

This is a must see - and everyone wants to see it. So if you want to take pictures or drive up it leisurely, then go early before the crowd! And by early I mean between 7:00-8:30 a.m. By 9:00 it's a line of cars going up and down. There are a few pull-outs but parking at the top is... More

I Agree. I recently drove this road and was in a trance the whole time. I have traveled all over the country including British Columbia, Alaska, Europe while they all hold beauty the Going-to-the-Sun Road in Glacier Park had displayed sights that was over the top. Spectacular and Majestic are the words I would use to discribe this amazing place.... More
