Glacier National Park – Going to the Sun Road

TheRVgeeks Miscellaneous, Trip Tips 3 Comments

One of our favorite RVing destinations in the U.S. is Glacier National Park, where you’ll find one of the most spectacular scenic drives in the world: Going to the Sun Road.

The road itself is an engineering marvel, but the views are absolutely incredible. If you’re afraid of heights, best to sit on the side of the car away from the edge. And don’t even think about driving your RV up here. Leave it in one of the campgrounds!

We include a look at one of our favorite campgrounds in the park: Apgar, at the west entrance of Going to the Sun Road. We also take one of the greatest easy day hikes in the park, starting at Logan Pass and ending at iconic Hidden Lake and Bearhat Mountain. Even though we took the hike in early July, almost the entire trail was completely snow-covered!

As with every other time we’ve hiked to Hidden Lake, we saw mountain goats along the trail. We actually spotted a total of 7 of them that day!

If you haven’t yet visited Glacier National Park, hopefully this quick overview of one of the most beautiful parts of the park will encourage you to add it to your bucket list.

  1. Thank you for sharing. This gives me an idea that we’ll need a motorhome large enough to have a toad. I’m assuming no class B+ 24-26′ were driving up there? I just need to rule it out for my partner that thinks we don’t need a toad if we get something 24-26′ but I’m thinking the smalles I want is a 30-34′ and we’ll need a toad. I appreciate any help.
