Logan Pass Access Closes Monday from East Side of Sun Road

By Beacon Staff

The last day to access Logan Pass by vehicle from the east side of Glacier National Park is Sunday, Sept. 22.

The National Park Service is reminding residents that rehabilitation is restarting on the east side of the Going-to-the-Sun Road. Vehicle traffic will be restricted on the east side near the St. Mary Campground beginning Monday, Sept. 23.

Vehicle access to Logan Pass will be available from the west side of the park through Sunday, Oct. 20, weather permitting.

Fall access to east-side hiking trails between Rising Sun and Logan Pass will be limited during road rehabilitation activity. Hikers are highly encouraged to contact the park at 888-7800 before departing on any of the trails that are accessed, or may be an exit point, along the east side of the Sun Road. The trails that are affected include Siyeh Pass, Piegan Pass, Otokomi, St. Mary Falls/Barring Falls/Virginia Falls, Gunsight, Sperry, and Red Eagle Trails.

For more information on status of trails and access, contact the park or visit here.

Access to some backcountry campsites on the east side of the park will also be affected. All backcountry campers are required to have a permit from the park’s backcountry office for overnight stays. All backcountry permits must be obtained from the Apgar Permit Center at this time of the year.

Visitors are encouraged to bring their own drinking water as drinking water availability throughout the park will be limited during this time of year. Drinking water is not available at Logan Pass, but restroom facilities (new vault toilet) are open for us.
