FAQ

Which border crossing will I drive through if visiting both Waterton/Glacier National Parks?

From the eastern end of the Going to the Sun Road in Glacier National Park (St Mary or Babb), the Chief Mountain border crossing is best. That’s Highway 17 on the US side, Highway 6 on the Canadian side.
