Going-to-the-Sun Road - West Glacier to Saint Mary Scenic Drive is a 49 mile moderately trafficked point-to-point trail located near West Glacier, MT that features a lake and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for scenic driving and is accessible from May until November.
Going-to-the-Sun Road in Montana's Glacier National Park spans 50 miles through the park's wild interior, winding around mountainsides and treating visitors to some of the best sights in northwest Montana and the whole US.
This is our 2nd time on this road, 1st time was in '09. I didn't get any video footage the 1st time, so I had to come back, it was just as busy as it was the 1st time. But we still enjoyed the experience. Being a Stephen King fan, and driving the road to the opening scene on "The Shining", I felt like a King.
It's the best park by far with spectacular trails and breathtaking views! Depending on the time of year you can see all types of wildlife such as grizzly and black bears. deer, elk, moose to name a few. Highly recommend!
Amazing ride from begging till finnish
Best view in the park from a vehicle! Love this park.
Amazing views but a bit cold. It was 46 degrees when we got to Logan Pass and it was July!
This drive has phenomenal views! The road is narrow, but you will be in awe of nature's beauty.
Great hiking, beautiful drive.
One of the best drives in the country! Nearly as amazing as the PCH. Make sure not to drive off the road by getting distracted!
GORGEOUS!!!!!!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE
10/10. This is a must go. If you enjoy the outdoors you must come. Amazing views. Great hike at top. I keep coming back
While you can drive this in 2-3 hours, we made a day out of the Going to the Sun Road, pulling over and taking several hikes along the way. Stops included McDonald Falls, Avalanche Lake (4 mi. RT), Birdwoman Falls Overlook, Weeping Wall, Hidden Lake Overlook Trail (3 mi. RT and had lots of snow along the trail in July!), Logan Pass VC, the start of the Highline Trail, Jackson Glacier Overlook, St. Mary's Falls, Sunrift Gorge Overlook, Baring Falls, Sunpoint Nature Trail, and the Wild Goose Island turnout. While the clouds were in an out, we stayed dry, saw Rocky Mountain Goats and Big Horn Sheep, as well as some really spectacular views. One of the most spectacular drives in the US. Not to miss!
