Montana — A few days after opening the Going-to-the-Sun Road to hikers and bikers, Glacier National Park announced that it has opened the Road to drivers.

On Saturday morning, Glacier National Park announced that Going-to-the-Sun Road is now open to drivers. Road clearing crews had their work cut out for them this year, needing to clear the biggest snowdrifts on the road since 2011. The road typically opens in full in June or July, so the crews did a great job this year getting it open. Bikers were a little bummed that they only had two days of the road, but they can still go up there and hog up half the road like they typically do.

If you plan on driving this beautiful road this summer, there are a few key things to note. You’ll need a vehicle reservation if you plan on starting your journey through the West Glacier entrance. However, if you plan on entering through the East Side entrance (St. Mary), you don’t need one. If you plan on entering through the East Side, then plan on heading back onto Going to Sun Road from the West Side from 6 am to 3 pm, you’ll need a reservation. Alternatively, guests can ride the shuttle to access Going to the Sun Road.
