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

4.8
#1 of 6 in Scenic Drive in Montana
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. Be aware that some parts of the road may not be accessible, depending on the weather conditions. To find out how to plan a trip to Glacier National Park, use our trip itinerary maker.

  • This the greatest scenic drive I have ever experienced., Of course, its WAY WAY more than just a scenic drive, but I travel with my mother who doesn't hike much anymore. and I cant leave her and go.....  more »
  • narrow, windy road with a million dollar view. Quite an experience if you are the driver!! I kept hoping for no on-coming traffic. Suggest taking the tour bus if you really want to enjoy the trip.  more »
