Travel from east to west and you will avoid many slowdowns, as most travelers move from west to east. Or if you have time, drive it both ways because the views are great on each side.

We arrived on June 28th and the road had just opened fully that day. We stayed in East Glacier and decided to drive the full road the next day. Definitely recommend starting out early in the day to allow for less congestion and that also...More

Our 5th time did not disappoint even with some smokiness from forest fires in canada. Our advice is to get to the park early before the crowds hit the pass then do a walk and then drive back late afternoon after the crowds have gone....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.
