Drove to the top late one afternoon. It was well worth it. Stunning views and the best cellular service on the park.

We traveled this road to find wildlife. We saw NOTHING. While that was very disappointing the view at the top of the road (keep going to the top where the cell phone tower is!) was breahtaking and made the drive worth it.

This is such an amazing MUST see when in GTNP! The drive is pretty narrow and has scary turns in it, but is SO worth it. Feel like you can see forever up there!

I don't know if the road is closed at night. The NPS website doesn't tell. I guess the best is to ask directly to the rangers through their website.

These are called "slash piles" and are used for controlled fires as a form of fuel reduction. In areas where infrastructure is built, the trees are thinned out and wood piled. Once there is snow on the ground the piles will... More
