This is the alternate and more scenic way to travel between East and West Glacier National Park. It has a ton of traffic, lots of people and is slow going (20 mph most of the time) but has the most spectacular views. It is completely...More

Everyone says spend the entire day making this drive. I say spend two days. Drive it both directions, you get entirely different views both ways and you don't want to miss anything.

Only downside was the road's being closed at Logan Pass due to the fire. Drive was as beautiful as anticipated. If you go, take advantage of the many chances to stop and enjoy...but DON'T stop in the middle of the road!

Unfortunately, the visit was marred by the wildfires. Our views were obscured by the hazy smoke and it really impaired our ability to enjoy the views. Visibility was limited to a few miles. Even with such heavy level of smoke, we could definitely see the...More

We drove this road once (each way) on our 9-day trip to Glacier and that was enough for us. This was early September and there were massive fires across the park and in Canada so visibility was terrible, this may be why we did not...More

We drove the length of the road and back again and the views are amazing! Interesting to see how the road hugs the mountainside, and makes you realise how difficult it was to build. There are quite a few pull outs and small parking areas...More

We reserved this trip months before our visit with great anticipation, however, due to the Sprague fire burning, the road was closed from Logan's Pass. We got the red bus at St Mary Lodge, where we were staying. For the full fare, it took us...More

Depends on conditions. From the west side the road will close just past Avalanche Lake, probably in September. The park web site will have updated info. The park stays open year round, but most of the year, you have to take... More
