This is one of the most spectacular drives you can do in the state of Montana. You need to take you time and make sure you use the pull-outs to stop for pictures. The visitor centre was closed in early October so make sure you confirm it is open if you want any assistance with hikes in the area.

West to east this drive is just amazing. Second time around I had a bit more anxiety in the passenger seat This is simply the most stunning drive you will ever take, Montana in all its glory.

We went over the entire length of the road twice on the same trip. Once on the Red Bus Tour, and the second time by ourselves stopping to do a couple of short hikes. You must do this at least once in your life time.

Your have to drive this road at least once! Make sure it is open when you visit, though. We got out mid-way and had a fun snow-ball fight! In July! Great memories along with the spectacular views!

The title says it all. It is completely worth traveling the entire road and stopping at the many look out points. Pack a lunch, and start your day early if you plan on hitting the trails as you make your way up. Parking spots fill up fast at the popular trail heads. The drive allows for the most spectacular views... More

First, be aware you cannot drive a big RV or a trailer on this road. The restrictions make sense, since space is limited, the road never very wide, and turn outs are rare. It was built in the 30s. That said, this is a very memorable drive, and don't rush it. This is driving on top of the world for... More

We love Going to the Sun Road in all seasons and take it several times a year. It is a slow drive because of speed limits and people enjoying the views. It is not nearly as scary as some people expect. There are road-edge walls and safety barriers all the way and many places to turn off. The Alpine, drop-off... More

This is a beautiful drive and well worth it. However it is a slow drive with a lot of switchbacks. The driver misses a lot of the scenery. The red buses are a good option.

I had to be in Many Glacier early one September morning, so I took the Going-To-The-Sun Road from West Glacier to St. Mary in the wee hours. I stopped at one of the turnouts somewhere around the Garden Wall, and turned off my vehicle. A full moon lit up the Garden Wall behind me and everything as far as I... More
