Sun Rift Gorge Picture
Sun Rift Gorge, 200 feet from the Going To The Sun Road.


Formed when a small stream cut through a natural break in the rock. Sunrift Gorge is a straight steep canyon cut through the bedrock just 200 feet off the main road. Also at this location one of the most beautiful bridges along the entire Going to the Sun Road is found. Baring Creek Bridge is an excellent example of how native stone materials were used to blend the road into the landscape, A short hike under the bridge leads to Baring Falls. Hikers may continue from there to St. Mary and Virginia Falls. The steep approach to the Siyeh Pass Area starts here as well.
