Must do! The park shuttle is great except it can sometimes be more than the promised 20-30 minute wait. Not far from Logan Pass going east is Lunch Creek – great place to have lunch and look at the beautiful wildflowers. Logan Pass is a...More

GTTS road is the thing everyone does at Glacier, The 50 mile road is much cooler on the eastern side, which includes Logan Pass and the Loop, along with lots of mountains and waterfalls. We had no issues with traffic during a busy time, and...More

We took one of the red busses on going to the sun road for our first experience. Glad we did. The road is quite narrow in spots and the drop offs are huge. If you don't like heights, this might give you a few moments...More

We drove and it wasn't the narrow roads and sheer drop offs that were discouraging - it was the huge number of people. Even getting a very early start we found no parking at bathroom stops and no parking to get out and walk or...More

Built by the railroad execs to attract visitors to stay at the National Park Lodges, this road is narrow and winding, but cuts through some of the most beautiful scenery in the United States (and Canada). Take one of the restored Jammers for the full...More

We drove the road all the way across and back, and it's spectacular! So many places to stop and see the amazing landscape, plus waterfalls, wildlife, glaciers, and more! Since it's the only road thru the park, it's busy and can get crowded, but if...More

Would recommend using the free shuttles because the parking spots at the top of the pass fill up early and the shuttles we used were very convenient.

Excellent roads and incredible views are matched only by the mindless drivers stopping traffic so they can look around. The best time to go is late afternoon when most of the touristas have retreated to McDonald's for their consumption of mass meat.

The Going to the Sun Road runs for 50 miles across Glacier National Park. You access it at either the east or western entrance to the park. This is the best way to see all the scenic beauty the park has to offer. Many people...More

Depending on how many stops for photos and the traffic I would give yourself at least 2.5-3 hours (one way). That's just my guess though 😊

First, go early. If you're after 8:30 or so the parking at Logan pass will be full and they won't let you in. At Logan Pass, you very well may see Big Horn Sheep either in the lot or across the road on the hillside... More
