The spectacular road through the park, the Going-to-the-Sun Road, is closed by snow during the winter months, and spring and fall are devoted to road repair. The road is generally open from mid-June to late September.
Be sure to gas up before entering the park; there are no gas stations in the park.
Highway 2, which skirts the southern border of the park, is open year-round, as is the Outside North Fork Road leading to Polebridge.
