Getting to Glacier National Park

Driving to Glacier

US-2 is the primary access to the park. From the east US-2 runs through the town of Cut Bank. Continue on US-2 to the town of West Glacier to access the western end of the Going-to-the-Sun Road, or go north on MT-49 at the town of East Glacier Park to the Two Medicine Entrance. Continue north to US-89 and Saint Mary for the eastern side of Going-to-the-Sun Road. Go even further north on US-89 to reach the Many Glacier Entrance.

Below you will find an interactive map showing the location of the Apgar Visitor Center near the western entrance of Glacier. Following this are the official park maps provided by the National Park Service. You can view either the original PDF file or a simple JPEG image file (some of these files can be quite large). The map links will open in a new tab. Note that while these maps are useful for general navigation around the park, if you plan to do any hiking, you should really have a proper Glacier Trail Map.
