Rapid Ciy SD to Glacier NP to Banff

GPS says I90 to Missoula then 93 to Glacier. Would it be better to go I15 and US 2 to Glacier and PH 4 in Canada??

US 2 is good road. If you want to really see "big sky country", that's the way to go.

Unless 93 has changed, it is a dangerous road to drive. I would go I90 to I15 to US2 and then PH4, much safer and better roads. Better being a relative term considering the state of roads and highways these days.

chastho - We were in Glacier in July and we took in on I15 to Shelby and US2 to Glacier. The road was pretty good. When we left Glacier headed towards Crater Lake, OR we took US2 to 93 down to I90 and that was also very good road and easy driving.

I can not speak to the way to Banff as we did not go there. Good luck and enjoy the beautiful scenery!!

Just about two weeks ago we drove from south of Missoula up US93 to Glacier, except we split at Polson and took Rt35 around the east side of Flathead Lake. No problems at all in our 40ft DS. If there's a part of US93 that's dangerous, we didn't see it.

Leaving Glacier we took US2 across the southern portion of the park to US89 to US287 through Helena to I-90 at MM274 near Three Forks. You could easily reverse that route. All good scenic road with a few grades, but nothing to write home about. And you'll never have to quote Sam Neill!
