Going-to-the-Sun Road, Glacier National Park

If you want to cross Glacier National Park (not to mention the Continental Divide at Logan Pass), hop in your car for a ride along the 83 km (52 mi) Going-to-the-Sun Road. Along the way, you'll be rewarded with spectacular views of valleys, glacial lakes, waterfalls, tundra, and wildlife. The Jackson Glacier overlook features some of the best views of all. Campgrounds, picnic areas, and lodging are all available along the route--but gas isn't, so fill your tank before heading out.

  • This drive it’s so amazing you’ll want to drive it over and over to make sure you get it all in. So much beautiful scenery everywhere. Go earlier in the season to avoid the crowds.  more »
  • I drove Highway 1 in CA multiple times before. Compared to Hwy1, it actually makes you feel safer driving on this going-to-the-sun road. Expect animals and grand views to spot on next turn.  more »
