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.
Glacier National Park is reopening in phases, so expect things to be a little out of the ordinary this year. PLEASE TRAVEL RESPONSIBLY. Plan well, monitor and adjust, stay safe, be respectful, be kind, be patient, and be prepared.
Visitors can drive 12 miles from the West Entrance to Lake McDonald Lodge, and 6 miles from the St. Mary Entrance to Rising Sun.
Visitors are prohibited from going past the hiker/biker closures. Violators are putting their safety and the safety of our park rangers at risk and could face up to a $5,000 fine and up to 6 months in jail.
