Going to the Sun Road

September 08, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

The Going-to-the-Sun Road was completed in 1932 and is a scenic 50 mile, two-lane highway that spans the width of Glacier National Park, crossing the Continental Divide at 6,646-foot-high Logan Pass. It passes through almost every type of terrain in the park, from large glacial lakes and cedar forests in the lower valleys to windswept alpine tundra atop the pass. Scenic viewpoints and pullouts line the road. The view from one side of the road is much different than from the other so be sure to travel in both directions. The road is open only a short time, from June to early fall. If you do not have a timed ticket you can only enter before 6 am or after 5 pm.
