Traveling Going-to-the-Sun Road
Going-to-the-Sun Road is a highlight not to be missed during your Glacier visit. The Road spans 50 miles and crosses the Continental Divide at Logan Pass. During your traverse you will see impressive glaciers, beautiful valleys, cascading waterfalls, towering mountains and colorful wildflowers. Most visitors will also witness wildlife sightings on their trip across the Sun Road!
There are alternatives to driving your own vehicle across Going-to-the-Sun Road including the famous Red Bus Tours
and the complimentary National Park Service Shuttles.
Due to the mountainous terrain of the highway, it is only open seasonally. Opening and closing dates depend on weather. Don't forget to check the current road status
before you travel. If portions of the road are closed, don't worry, there are still plenty of other scenic drives
in and around Glacier National Park.
