On the Going-to-the-Sun Road, you may find yourself looking for something to grab onto while your vehicle navigates the narrow route along the Garden Wall as it climbs to the top of the Continental Divide at Logan Pass. Glacier-carved peaks, hanging valleys and thundering waterfalls are the backdrops for the motorist moving through the heart of the park.

• boat tours
• horseback riding
• campgrounds and picnic areas
• lodging and restaurants

In particular, hikers will find maps illustrating over 20 trails along the route. Sidebar details include distances, elevation gain, and difficulty level for each footpath.
Tom has lived next to and explored Glacier National Park for over 30 years. He understands the time and money constraints visitors bring with them. Anyone who plans to visit Glacier National Park will find something valuable in this book.
