Closures are trails or areas of the park that have been officially closed for resource or visitor protection.

Postings are trails or areas of the park that have been posted as a warning to visitors to be especially cautious. Postings typically are put in place to warn visitors of heightened safety concerns in the area, such as frequent bear or mountain lion sightings close to a trail. The areas remain open and visitors should proceed with caution.

Road Closures

The Inside North Fork Road is closed between Camas Creek and Logging Creek.

Stopping is allowed in the open turnouts in the Reynolds Creek Fire area (from the East
side of Jackson Glacier Overlook to Rising Sun) along the Going to the Sun road. Visitors
are reminded not to block traffic, and to stay on the paved area. The burned areas remain
closed for visitor safety. Some turnouts (including those with a shuttle stop or trailhead) in
the Reynolds Creek Fire area remain closed.

In Many Glacier there will be minor delays due to the Windy and Apikuni bridge
rehabilitation work, and therefore one way bridge traffic on the Many Glacier Road. The project is
anticipated to continue through October 16.

Information is also available on the Road Status Page of the park website.
