Western Road to Logan Pass at Glacier Park Will Open
The popular Going-to-the-Sun Road at Glacier National Park will partially open Wednesday, July 29.
Park officials will allow tourists to drive up to Logan Pass, but no farther. The eastern side of the road remains closed due to the 3,000 acre Reynolds Creek forest fire, which is active on both sides of the road.
There are some restrictions, according to Glacier National Park superintendent Jeff Mow. If the road becomes too congested, rangers may turn vehicles around at Big Bend or Avalanche Creek for public safety. Visitors are encouraged to use the free shuttle system or the Sun Tours interpretive tours.
Parking is limited at Logan Pass and visitors may not be able to park and hike. The Logan Pass Visitor Center will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and the Highline Trail, Hidden Lake Overlook and Hidden Lake will be open.
Visitors will not be able to view the Reynolds Creek Fire from Logan Pass.
