Keep in mind that it's a lot further to get around to St. Mary's. Don't recall for sure but I'm guessing another 90 minutes or more. Decide on how far you want to travel and what you want to see in the park and let that drive your decision.


If I want to stay in both CG's I would have to take that route anyway since as I understand it I can't pull my trailer over GTTSR...nor would I want to ;-)

If you want to get to the west side from Banff just take the road to Radium Hot Springs then south to a border crossing there which puts you down on the west side of the park. You also get to see the Yolo and Kotenai parks on that side. That's what we did coming back.


That looks like a good route. We can go that way to Fish Creek for a day or two, and then go the lower route to St Mary's for another day or two before heading to Yellowstone. And we can at least try to go over GTTSR from one side or the other w/out the trailer.

Thanks.

Some other food for thought. I preferred the Two Medicine area to Many Glacier. Just seemed less crowded with some nice trails. It's a long day but you could visit Many Glacier when you did GTS road and then camp in Two Medicine to cut down on the driving. The St. Mary's area just seemed to be more of a road junction than a scenic area. I'm not sure about the reservation situation though.

Fish Creek and St. Mary's are the only two CG's that take advance reservations. And to that point, I ASSUMED I could only make reservations there 6 months in advance, but as it turns out I have already missed the reservation window...so I had to book at the KOA in St. Marys instead. THAT's a bunch of extra bucks we had not planned on!!!
