Every spring in Northern Montana locals begin placing bets on when the park service will open the road. I recommend against making any firm plans for travel over going to the sun until mid-late June. The road is many things to many people. It is an engineering marvel, a link to some of the most amazing hiking trails in the... More

What beauty! We visited in August which was very crowded at the top-Logan Pass and we couldn't get parking, even down along the road cars were lined up. Go VERY early to park, explore and hike at Logan pass. Absolutely breathtaking!

Yes the road is/was an engineering marvel getting over that mountain and is very pretty, saw a mountain goat and baby right along road near summit. The only issue( in my opinion) is that it gets so crowded and it's near impossible to find a parking spot at the summit visitors center. We drove around for 10 minutes unsuccessfully. I... More

The road is very beautiful but mostly on the middle part just before and after Logan Pass. Try to go when it's sunny, becuase it is not that interesting in cloudy weather. You can't drive the road in a RV so remember to hire a car. Yo see several beautiful waterfalls, but they are not well announced so remember a... More

We got up very early and drove the entirety of the road (on our way to hike to Iceberg Lake), then again on the way back in the late afternoon. They were two completely different experiences. The morning drive was extremely foggy, and at higher altitudes there were times we could barely see 50ft in front of the car. The... More

This was a great experience to see the beautify of the Glacier National Park in Montana. I highly recommend the experience. We took a truck and did great on the winding roads.

The scenery is beautiful, however, if you hope to take pictures, forget about it. One cannot drive and photograph at the same time, no pull over spot to speak of, Maybe if you take the Red Bus you might have a little luck. The park shuttle stops only for hikers. Beautiful beautiful scenery, most of the time. I would not... More

We did this in August 2016. We originally planned on driving the road but after reading about all the twists and turns in the road decided to take the shuttle. We were happy with this decision. There were 4 of us and we could all enjoy the scenery. We went early to catch the first shuttle and took it to... More

I would do this again in a heart beat! If you are afraid of heights I would recommend sitting on the opposite side of the car closer to the wall. The landscape is incredible. This is one of the coolest things I have ever done.
