Glacier NP - Just Starting to Tinker

Jump to last reply

Just starting to tinker with the idea of going to Glacier NP (MT) the end of July (2012) of start of August.

I would plan on about a week.

From my first few minutes of researching it would appear the east side (St May, Many Glacier) might be the place to stay. Correct?

Kalispell appears to be the more comvenient airport rather than Great Falls. However, it's possible the Going to the Sun Road might freak me out. I notice that driving around on Rt 2 doesn't seem to take any longer (only a few minutes). Is that correct? Is it tamer?

If I drove around I would find other ways to spend time on the GTS road.

Lodging. I see lots of options. Ste Mary area appears to be most convenient as is provides easy access going west as well as to Many Glacier. Correct?

Any guidance from those who've been would be greatly appreciated.
