The Roads of Glacier

The main developed part of Glacier is traversed by the Going-to-the-Sun Road, widely considered one of the best scenic drives in North America. The road starts out relatively wide and straight from the western entrance and along Lake McDonald, then becomes steep, winding, and very narrow as it climbs to Logan Pass. From the pass down to Saint Mary, the road gradually returns to its original ease, this time along Saint Mary Lake. Other shorter, but very scenic roads, lead into the Many Glacier and Two Medicine sections, and should not be missed.
