Glacier National Park is located in northwestern Montana adjacent to the Canadian border. US 93 provides acess to the west side of the park, and US 2 and 89 to the east side. Great Falls is about 130 miles away from the east entrances, while Kalispell is 33 miles from the west entrance and Missoula is 160 miles from it.
The only paved road within the park is the famous Going-to-the-Sun Road, which gains several thousand feet in elevation as it crests the Continental Divide. The 53-mile road is closed from mid-fall to late spring.
