I have visited Glacier and drove up the Going to the Sun Road many times over the past several years. The SCENERY! The WILDLIFE! Amazing views!

“Would go here again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

This drive is one of the most awesome drives I've ever taken, waterfalls along side the road, mountain sheep and goats everywhere, canyons and rivers to scan, we even were able to go on a guided tour with a biologist who explained the different types of wild flowers that don't grow hardly anyplace else, or you can hike up to the Continental divide where the water runs both east & west, and you have to climb over snow banks that are in some places still 30 or more feet deep even in July. Makes you feel like your on top of the world.

“What a time!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

Such an amazing route even if was a drop off right next to the road! They were doing a little construction at the time but it was well organized and there wasn't a long wait time to get through the whole road.

“Scenic But With Some "White-Knuckle" Sections”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

This is one of the most scenic drives in America. During our visit a severe thunderstorm caused landslides blocking two sections of the road. Some people were trapped and had to be rescued until the road reopened. Fortunately the road was only closed two days so we got were able to travel from East Glacier to West Glacier during our stay. Most of the road is a fine and scenic drive but a few spots are tight and steep so the driver really has to pay attention in those spots! Go early to keep the sun at your back. The faint of heart can take one of the many Red Bus tours offered by the park. It's a relaxing way to enjoy the outstanding scenery.

“One of the great wonders on the US.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2012

Remember you are not at the top of the food chain here. Best to carry Counter Assault bear spray (it is the best in the 10 oz can). Great scenery and hiking trails. Very old rustic log hotels which are really neat for the family to stay in. Bring your passport and take in Waterton National Park just across the Canadian Border north of Glacier.
