We are so glad we came back to Glacier National Park during the summer months. Our winter visits did not suffice. All though you can use a free shuttle, I would advise you to not unless you are just hopping off a bus to take...More

This is the one thing everyone does at Glacier and for good reason. This is a must-do drive. Take your time, use the many pull-offs to take in the amazing views, and enjoy one of the most amazing vistas in North America. It will be...More

Superb scenery and spectacular vistas. Nice visitor center and hiking trails at Logan pass. Make you pull out at some of the view points or driver won’t get to see much as round is narrow with sharp drop offs in many areas. Worth the trip.

I drove in from the west side, and every turn was jaw dropping. The drive is easy as there is only 1 switch back, and although very tight everyone drives 10mph. No one tailgates, there are even signs on your way into the park reminding...More

Even with the forest fires that were taking place, I was still able to see a large portion of the park. Coming in from the east and making it as far as Logan Pass, I still had the experience of the park. After leaving the...More

One of the highlights of our trip was driving the Going to the Sun Road. We drove it from East to West, which is less scary as we were driving the inside lane, farther from the cliff. The views were amazing. We loved stopping at...More

I think it really just depends on the weather conditions. We drove it 2 days in a row at the end of July, the first day was clear as a bell. We stayed overnight in St Mary and woke the next day to thick low cloud but this... More

It has switchbacks can get steep and winds around areas but if you don't want to drive it go with a red bus tour so you can both be more comfortable and less stress
