Since the views are spectacular from both directions, we're going to base our answer on what awaits you after your trip!

We recommend starting your trip on the western side of Glacier National Park. Grab breakfast and spend some time exploring the beautiful town of Whitefish, MT before heading into the park.

During your drive through the park, check out Lake McDonald Lodge and the stops along the western side of the Going to the Sun Road. When you reach Logan Pass, look for mountain goats at pulloffs and make sure to hike out on the Hidden Lake Nature Trail behind the visitor center. Totally worth the climb, even if it seems crowded!

Finish your day on the eastern side of the park on the back porch of Many Glacier Hotel, where you can enjoy the sunset and dine overlooking the lake, with the mountains beyond.

Hi Peg,

Our best advice is to check the Shuttle Bus Routes page on Rocky Mountain National Park's website. If you need additional information, call the park's visitor Information line at 970-586-1206 (daily 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Mountain Time, recorded information after hours).

According to the National Park Service:

From early November through late April, all roads south through the park are closed to wheeled vehicles, including the road to Old Faithful Geyser. During the winter season only two roads are plowed: between the North Entrance and Cooke City, MT and from Mammoth Hot Springs to the parking area at the Upper Terraces.The Northeast Entrance near Cooke City, which leads eastward into Montana, is not plowed during the winter.

For more information about road status in Yellowstone visit http://www.nps.gov/yell/planyourvisit/roadclosures.htm.

The Generals Highway runs nearly 50 miles from Sequoia National Park's Ash Mountain Entrance to Grant Grove in Kings Canyon National Park, passing through the Giant Forest, home of the world's largest sequoia trees.For a short, scenic drive in Sequoia National Park, I would recommend the paved Moro Rock/Crescent Meadow Road, a 3-mile dead-end road (open in summer only) that runs from the Giant Forest Museum, along the Generals Highway, south and east through a grove of sequoias.
