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.
