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.
Currently 15.5 miles of the Going-to-the-Sun Road are open for travel. Visitors can drive 2.0 miles from the West Entrance to Foot of Lake McDonald, and 13.5 miles from the St. Mary Entrance to Jackson Glacier Overlook.
The section of the road between Foot of Lake McDonald and Jackson Glacier Overlook is closed due to construction. There is no hiker/biker access on the west side when the road crew is working. The east side does not have hiker/biker access past the Jackson Glacier Overlook vehicle closure.
