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

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

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
