Logan Pass open from west side; more good progress on Reynolds Creek Fire

As progress continues against the Reynolds Creek fire, Logan Pass re-opens for access from the west side of the park . . .

Access to Logan Pass is available to Glacier National Park visitors for the first time since the Reynolds Creek Fire sparked July 22, and as fire crews continue to gain ground on the blaze and shore up its northeast edge, officials have listed the fire at 56 percent contained.

The Going-to-the-Sun Road remains closed on the east side from just beyond the St. Mary Campground to Logan Pass, but beginning at 9 a.m. Wednesday visitors could once again travel to the iconic corridor’s high point from the west side.

Visitors should expect delays and congestion along the road.
