Two Medicine, Bowman Roads Opened in Glacier


Glacier National Park opened the Two Medicine Road and Bowman Lake Road to motor vehicles for the season this week.

On Going-to-the-Sun Road, access to Avalanche Creek on the west side is limited to Avalanche Creek on weekends due to bear activity beyond that point.

On the east side, visitors can hike and bike all the way to Wild Goose Island, but no further due to avalanche danger.

Plow crews have been working in the Big Bend area on the west side, about 5 miles from Logan Pass.

The road is open to vehicles as far as Rising Sun on the east side and Lake McDonald Lodge on the west side.

The Inside North Fork Road is open to Big Prairie and to Logging Creek. It is closed between Logging and Camas Creek. The Many Glacier Road will remain closed to motor vehicles, but will be open for hiking and biking to the T-junction.

Temperatures on Saturday will be in the 40s and 50s and slightly warmer on Sunday, with highs in the 50s and 60s. Although it should be cloudy, the chance of rain is only 20%.
