I can't say anything else that hasn't been said before. This is a stunning drive and impossible to describe. It is not scary at all - just go slow (which you'll have to anyways because of traffic!).

We drove the Going-to-the-sun road a few times. It was absolutely gorgeous. It was really foggy one day but still offered gorgeous views of the park.

I can't recommend Glacier highly enough. The road itself can be crazily packed, but be patient. It will take you to amazing places, and opportunities to GET OUT OF YOUR CAR and onto your feet.

When I returned and looked at my pictures, it almost seemed surreal. Unfortunately, when we were there in Sep Glacier Park had 9 forest fires going, so the animals exited North. Stunningly beautiful.

I did the ride when some forest fires were burning and this did impact visibility and to some extent air quality but still it was a great experience passing through by bicycle. I started from apgar and went on down to rising sun before turning...More

Had to travel there for a second time because the first time the road was partially closed so we went later in the summer! It is a beautiful drive, but leave early because the stops are crowded and there is often no where to park...More
