Montana: Going-to-the-Sun Road

Montana: Going-to-the-Sun Road The 50-mile Going-to-the-Sun Road bisects Glacier National Park’s glacial lakes, valleys, and cedar forests, while climbing to an altitude of more than 6,400 feet. Many find the two-lane road’s cliff-hugging panoramas exhilarating, but, for some, it’s definitely a white-knuckles-on-the-wheel experience. “It’s worth it for the spectacular mountain views that are accessible right from your car,” says Virtuoso travel advisor Kristen Nix. “You don’t have to get out into the backcountry to experience some epic scenery.” Don’t Miss: Nix recommends the 5.4-mile Hidden Lake trail near the Logan Pass Visitor Centre, which cuts through alpine meadows before leading hikers to a popular overlook. Next Stop: A four-hour drive south in Montana’s Bitterroot Mountains, the 23-cabin Triple Creek Ranch keeps guests busy on fly-fishing trips, cattle drives, and more.
