We brought 2 teenage granddaughters and it was a memorable trip for all of us. We stopped so many times for pictures when there was a pull out. We would do it again, given the opportunity.

This drive is perfect for all. Stay in your car and be amazed by the gorgeous views. Stop at one of the many pull outs and take in the aromas and vistas. Look for the mountain goats, grizzly and black bears. Enjoy the waterfalls, streams and glaciers. If you have more time take one of the many hikes to a... More

We weren't planning on going through the park at all, We were just passing through from Washington on to Minnesota. I am beyond happy we did!! There wasn't a moment driving through the Going to the Sun Road that wasn't unbelievably beautiful. Once you exit the park on the east side the mountains are done. We went through way faster...

The Going-to-the-Sun Road was our last venture during a 2 week vacation preceded be Banff, Jasper, Waterton Lakes, and many other parks in Canada. We are so happy that we made the effort to cross the US border for this scenic drive! There was so much scenery to enjoy every minute of the drive. I got many fantastic photos with... More

We drove this after we had taken the Red Bus tour. It was a good choice as we had heard about the places we passed. Also, the driver could concentrate on driving as we had seen the sites the day before on our tour. Upon leaving (east side), there are not very many restaurants/gas options. There is a grocery store... More

My family and I had a great time on going to the sun road. We did stop and hike to the hidden lake and would recommend it. Going to the sun road was a amazing,fantastic, and different. My family loved the view. We loved it so much that we had to go on it twice.

Going to the Sun Road is breathtaking. It changes with the time of day, and day by day. We made three trips in total, one of them across the entire length of GTTSR. The mountains are beautiful, and the road itself is an engineering gem. Each turn brings new joys. In late June, we had wet snowfall at Logan Pass... More

Do this drive in the summer when the whole road is open! Which isn't long due to high altitudes and snow much of the year. The views you get are incredible, and you will see wildlife if you keep your eyes open!

We traveled this a total of 4 times (well, 2 each way) over 2 different days. Get an early start and go right to the top, then work your way down if you want to avoid crowds. Very much enjoyed Jackson Glacier overlook (easiest view of a Glacier without a big hike or longer drive) on the E side. At... More

This is one of those must do things that everyone does who goes to the park. Go early or late or you won't find a parking space at the top. There aren't enough parking spaces to accommodate the traffic and there aren't parking spaces on the road nearby. So, you may not be able to visit the ranger station or... More
