The title says it all. It is completely worth traveling the entire road and stopping at the many look out points. Pack a lunch, and start your day early if you plan on hitting the trails as you make your way up. Parking spots fill up fast at the popular trail heads. The drive allows for the most spectacular views... More

First, be aware you cannot drive a big RV or a trailer on this road. The restrictions make sense, since space is limited, the road never very wide, and turn outs are rare. It was built in the 30s. That said, this is a very memorable drive, and don't rush it. This is driving on top of the world for... More

We love Going to the Sun Road in all seasons and take it several times a year. It is a slow drive because of speed limits and people enjoying the views. It is not nearly as scary as some people expect. There are road-edge walls and safety barriers all the way and many places to turn off. The Alpine, drop-off... More

This is a beautiful drive and well worth it. However it is a slow drive with a lot of switchbacks. The driver misses a lot of the scenery. The red buses are a good option.

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!
