Travel to Glacier NP

How is Hwy 35 north from Polson, MT, to Glacier NP for a 45 ft. towing a jeep? Would you advise staying on 93?

US93 up the west side of the lake is fine but can't tell you about 35.

Just passed 35.....it said narrow and limited passing. Recommended 93 for trucks. We're staying on 93. Better safe than sorry.

Been a few years since we made that trip up 93pe, but it was fine with a 36 foot DP and toad. Aggravating with all the curves as it followed the shoreline of Flathead Lake. A straighter road would have been a big plus but we didn't know until we were headed up to Kalispell.

About 8 years ago we drove Southbound on MT 35.(if you wish, use one of the house address's and Google earth to see the highway) It has a wide-load restriction of 9 ft. now. When we drove the highway it was low-volume traffic and we were just loafing along. Great scenery, relaxing drive. Back then we had a dually and 40' 5er. It is a truck route for local delivery only, The main truck route is US 93.
If you are unsure, stop at Polson and ask a local about driving it in your rig.

We did the Glacier Scene staying in Columbia Falls in August of 2012. We spent the night at Jim & Mary's RV park, Missoula, MT and the the short 115 mile trip to Columbia Falls.

We traveled Highway 35. It was a beautiful ride, very scenic along the lake. Maybe a little slower than 93, I don't know, but it was worth taking that highway. We traveled in a 40 ft DP towing a 2007 Saturn. No problems at all. Go for it.
