I've been to many, many national parks and this road was one of the scariest drives yet but you have to do it! The views are among some of the most spectacular sights in America! Seen three black bear while driving!

The Going-to-the-Sun Road is both a rather impressive ride and a nice feat of engineering, notably up near the top (more on that in a moment). When you are at the bottom - on either the east or west side - the ride is nice, scenic, even somewhat leisurely at times. The east side especially is disarming as you have... More

When you drive it, you will know why. Avalanches take it out every year. It is cut into the face of a cliff. The views are spectacular. Highly recommend a Red Bus tour so you can enjoy the scenery and learn about the park from a well trained guide.

unfortunately, the trend of shrinking glaciers makes this attraction an endangered one. i would say get it while you can. the beauty of the location and the opportunity to see mountain goats up close, makes this a true wonder of the USA.

The first three trips we took to Glacier was before the snow had sufficiently melted enough for the road to be open. This year it was in September, so the road was opened so that we could take the full drive. It is absolutely breath taking! Highly recommend!

The views were truly awesome and the entire experience was just unforgettable. Lots of pictures taken and lots of quality time spent gazing at the valley and the receding glaciers

We don't usually like to do the touristy thing at each place we visit, but we were told this was a must not miss. We were told right. After visiting more than 40 countries around the world, we were shocked to find one of the most beautiful places on earth is right here in the U.S. We did the drive... More

We would have had better views without the snow, but the drive was beautiful anyway. It was closed at Logan Pass due to snow. This is a very narrow road and it is steep, but you need to drive it - maybe just not in the snow.

The start of our visit to Glacier NP was shrouded in low cloud and greyness - we couldn't see a thing, and thought about giving up. We pulled over somewhere and slept for about an hour (we'd been on the road for about 10 hours the day before). When we woke up, the weather was starting to clear - it... More

Don't miss driving Road to the Sun, even during busy month of Sept. There were many stops that were too crowded to pull over, including Logan Pass, but don't let that stop you. Traffic moves smoothly, curves aren't that dangerous to navigate, and views are to die for. We loved the drive so much driving west to east that we... More
