Taking visitors through the heart of Glacier National Park and cresting the Continental Divide at Logan Pass is the Going-to-the-Sun Road. An engineering marvel and National Historic Landmark, the Going-to-the-Sun Road connects West Glacier and St. Mary and provides travelers with stunning view of mountain peaks, high valley, wildflowers and wildlife. Perhaps the most popular attraction in Glacier National Park, the Going-to-the-Sun Road is one of most scenic drives in the nation.
Currently 17.0 miles of the Going-to-the-Sun Road are open for travel. Visitors can drive 11.5 miles from the West Entrance to Lake McDonald Lodge, and 5.5 miles from the St. Mary Entrance to Rising Sun.
The section of the road between Lake McDonald Lodge and Rising Sun is closed due to plowing. Due to the start of plowing operations, a hiker/biker closure sign is located on the west side at Packers Roost, 11 miles past the vehicle closure. On the east side the hiker biker closure is at Dead Horse Point, 2 miles past the vehicle closure. There is no access past these points while the road crew is working.
