Driving the scenic Logan Pass on the Going-to-the-Sun Road
Logan Pass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.026m (6,646ft) above the sea level, located in Glacier National Park, in the U.S. state of Montana. The pass is traversed by the scenic Going-to-the-Sun Road.
The road to the summit is paved. The road's winding design, providing stunning panoramic views, is very curvy and fun for a leisurely ride, so it pays to take it slow. The pass is closed during the winter due to avalanche hazards and the virtual impossibility of keeping the Going-to-the-Sun Road open. A record wind gust was recorded at this pass on April 9, 2014, of 139 miles per hour. Up to 80 feet (24 m) of snow can lie on top of Logan Pass. At the summit there’s a big parking.
