    Fantastic views! But there may not be a parking spot (and some visitors are a problem)
    If you land a parking spot, Logan Pass offers some of the best views in Glacier. But the park service warns that the parking lot fills by 8 am. Well, we got there at 7:15 one morning, and it was already full. Also, the crush of people there takes away a lot of the enjoyment. And frankly, some of the visitors are clueless, and others are downright rude. A few break laws. So...if you are lucky enough to land a reservation to drive Going to the Sun Highway...AND smart enough to get up there very early in the morning or after five in the evening, you can spend some time at Logan Pass. But be prepared for some potential "people issues." To avoid contributing to the "people issues," read the brochure that you get when you enter the park. Obey the rules. Relax, slow down and give other people some space. Focus on nature. Don't make a nuisance by taking selfies in obnoxious ways.

    Once you find parking a great wildlife viewing spot!
    The con’s - parking is truly a nightmare as many of mentioned or this would have gotten a five star review. Not sure what the answer is. I know it would look terrible but parking garage?? It is just a shame that more people can’t enjoy this amazing location. We got lucky finding a spot around 3 pm one day. Another time we got there at 11 AM and no parking and the last time when we wanted to do the Hidden Lake Overlook Trail we left our cabin in Coram at 5:30 AM and arrived at Logan’s Pass at 7:25 AM to get one of the last spots available. The drive was slow due to the 18 miles of torn up roads near Lake McDonald. We got lucky to see Big-Horn Sheep twice. They are positively majestic! We were there the week of July 2nd and a bit surprised that most of the wildflowers were done. There were a few still hanging on but not like some photos I had seen in previous years.

    Lots of trails and animals!
    Get here early, parking was a little tight! We started to hike to Hidden Lake trail, but it was so hot and there was no shade, so we turned back. I am told that is where see most animals. Then another day, we checked out the Highline Trail. Too hot, to walk far. But I’m glad I didn’t as a family of mountain goats walked 25 feet by me!

    Gorgeous Scenery, Lots of Wildlife
    We got here at 7 am the first week of August and there were still several spots left. My kids didn’t want to wake up early again so we took the shuttle the next day, which was easy. The scenery at Logan Pass is stunning, the best at the park. It is almost guaranteed wild life viewing, too. Mountain goats and big horned sheep seem to be there all the time.

    Get here early to get parking!! This lot is small and fills up fast! Then hike to the Hidden valley lake!
    Traveler pro tip - GET HERE EARLY or you will have extreme difficulty finding a place to park! Trust me. Get into the park and beeline it to this parking lot. If you come late you will have to park up to 1/2 mile away to get back to the visitor station. Then do the Hidden Lake hike (really a great one). Then check out the gift shop. VictorB

    Its the top of the continental divide - super cool
    If you have your car, you can drive up to the top of Logan's pass, and there you can have your picture at the continental divide. Note: you are not allowed to "do what you are thinking", just pour some water from a bottle and see which way it flows. :) The views are spectacular, and the drive up takes a lot of curves and winds. It's great fun. As well there are 2-3 hiking trails at the top, the most popular being the Highline

    Parking
    Most travelers know that there is virtually no parking at Logan Pass, unless you go very early, before 8AM anytime during the week, and before 7AM on a weekend. However, there is a free shuttle service that you can take to avoid the stress of parking at Logan Pass. The trails around Logan Pass are easy, just remember to take the necessary hiking essentials while here. I try to make a visit every other year while camping in Waterton.

    Logan Pass
    We drove up on one of the last days of September that you could get through before the first snow closed the Road to the Sun! Unfortunately it was very busy and we had to drive around the parking lot with about 20 other cars to wait for a parking spot! The visitor’s center was closed as well as the bathrooms! We walked around the paths wanting to see the Big Horn Sheep or the Mountain Goats but they were not there. There are gorgeous views in several directions so we enjoy them on a beautiful sunny day.

Short hike was nice and got stamped the the center. All as good from the flat spot on the top. We enjoyed a ten minute stop to see the last of the snow.

My favorite location on the Going to the Sun Road. Exceptional views from every angle. Access to Highline Trail, which was a bit if a nail biter if you don't like heights.
