Glacier Today is the only centralized source for all the latest news, inspiration, events, photos & more from Glacier National Park in Montana, with official social feeds from the National Park Service & more.
With jaw-dropping scenery around every turn, it's one of the main reasons people choose to visit! But with sharp corners, animal sightings, and traffic, driving the road demands our full attention.
Just this week, the park responded to minor accidents, vehicles that swerved off the road, a bicycle crash, and wildlife collisions. These incidents required technical rescues, emergency helicopter flights, and were responsible for backing up traffic for over 10 miles.
If you're driving through the park, be prepared for unexpected wildlife sightings that may stop traffic. Pull off the road to safely enjoy the scenery, and know your limits after a full day's adventure!
Love it!!! Can't go there without going up to Logans Pass
Unfortunately the day we drove it, there was a fatality. But not in a car. Be very very careful of where you step to get a picture. The rocks in the streams are very very slippery.
Yes, we drove it several years ago E to W. Traffic, yes but otherwise no problems. Just be patient and courteous.
Nope just a passenger twice both ways back n forth
one of America's great scenic treats
Up there earlier. I feel like we may need to consider limiting bicycles after the road is open to cars.
Drove back and forth many times over 6 days. Stayed in Many Glacier. Fantastic drive, but you need to pay attention.
The key is to try to have two drivers. One drives, the other one gapes in awe, and then you switch at the end and go back the other way, LOL!
When is your off season? That is when I would like to make the drive. TYIA
A fantastic road, sad thing is the driver does not get to enjoy it like the passenger.
Scariest road ever!
Yes I have!
My husband drove, I was a passenger. Beautiful
We did the Red Bus tour. Worth every penny.
Couple times, back in 2011.
Drove it last Sept. Beautiful!! We drove East to West then drove Hwy 2 around the bottom of the park....so pretty
