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

I wasn't really gung-ho about going on a scary, high, mountain road, but I knew if I was going to enjoy Glacier it couldn't be avoided. We considered taking the red bus, but was encouraged to drive ourselves.*** That was great advice. I'm never the driver on these mountain roads, so it was just getting over passenger nerves. Can't truthfully... More

It doesn't seem possible that you could come all this way to Glacier National Park and not tour Going-to-the Sun Road. This road, constructed 1921-1932, is one of our nation's most impressive engineering feats. The pioneering use of landscape architecture skills helped reduce switchbacks and enhance views. It crosses the Continental Divide at Logan's Pass. The road is two lanes... More

This road is a MUST do. You will not be sorry as the views are amazing! You will have to drive slow and you will want to stop and take pictures more than once. Lot's of built in stop zones just for this purpose which is great. Your finger will hurt from clicking pictures over and over!

Everything about Glacier National Park is beyond stunning. We very much enjoyed the Going to the Sun Road and even got to see one of the first snows of the season. All the stops along the way are interesting for different reasons- if you get to come to Glacier, you are lucky indeed!

I grew up near Glacier National Park so have always enjoyed the Going-to-the-Sun Road. It is spectacular. Every summer it gets more crowded. You can't take a large vehicle such as a motor home on the road. You must take the tour bus. That may be easier because the visitors' center at Logan Pass doesn't have enough parking. It would...

This road is amazing both in views and engineering. We had heard that parking at Logan Pass was often a mess and so decided to make use of the free shuttle service. Taking the shuttle is recommended anyway because it reduces congestion on the road and in parking lots and allows you to enjoy the views, which are spectacular. The... More

We crossed GTTS road over and back 3 times and I would do it again and again. We did it the first day in the rain....I'm not recommending that, but with the weather predictions, it looked like it might be our best day. We hung out in Whitefish and waited for a break, which came two days later. We rode... More

Every spring in Northern Montana locals begin placing bets on when the park service will open the road. I recommend against making any firm plans for travel over going to the sun until mid-late June. The road is many things to many people. It is an engineering marvel, a link to some of the most amazing hiking trails in the... More
