Glacier NP : 3 days enough?

Jump to last reply

In planning for our August trip to YNP and GTNP, we thought we might as well add GNP.
We'd be flying into Kalispell from Newark,NJ and plan to spend 2 weeks touring the parks.

Would 3 days(really 2.5) be enough to get a feel for Glacier, or should we add another day?
Which lodge would give the most central location?

From Glacier, we'd drive to Red Lodge for a night, then head over the Beartooth H'way into YNP for 4 nights,maybe 5. Remainder of our time would be spent at GTNP and Jackson.

Any thoughts??

P.S. Just how high is the fright factor for Beartooth and Going to the Sun roads? I was a passenger on a drive from Ouray to Silverton,Colorado and I think I'm still recovering!?
