I would feel more optimistic about a bright future for man if he spent less time proving that he can outwit Nature and more time tasting her sweetness and respecting her seniority.

The 7:30 AM express will let hikers off at The Loop ~ you do need to let the driver know that you want off at The Loop.
The Loop is a very popular stopping point on The-Going-To-The-Sun-Road. It essentially marks the end of a 'normal' road and the start of the steeper alpine part of The-Going-To-The-Sun-Road. It is also the trailhead for Granite Park Chalet and the end of the Highline Trail from Logan Pass. For the more adventuresome hikers it is also connects to the Swiftcurrent Pass Trail to Many Glacier along with the Swiftcurrent Lookout Trail.
