Although a short drive, this route is a visual wonder. Starting in Kiowa off of US-98 and traveling to East Glacier Park, the road winds over and around miles of rolling green hills. At the peak of each hill you are awarded with long panoramic views in every direction, the absence of any man-made structures fascinating. There is no one must-see feature that plays a starring role in this drive. It is the sheer simple breathtaking beauty of nature. Each twist and turn reveals an incredible view and you quickly learn why they call it Big Sky Country. Seemingly endless views to the horizon, groves of quirky aspen trees, the occasional rocky outcrop and roaming cows all framed by glaciers in the distance.

Near the end of the road, follow the signs towards Two Medicine Lake (H1) within Glacier National Park, where hiking trails, waterfalls, and outstanding views are not to be missed. Hikes include Twin Falls, an easy 3.8 miles with 75 foot elevation gain and the 5 mile Upper Two Medicine Lake Trail culminating at the foot of the Continental Divide. Boat tours and rentals are offered on the serene, picturesque lake and these hikes can be combined with a cruise cutting some of the hiking distance and adding to the adventure.

From here, explore the Going to the Sun Road or head south on US-89 to Yellowstone National Park.
