Boulder Pass - Trail Closure

Postby joshillian » Tue Jul 09, 2019 7:11 am

It's early in the season for the Boulder Pass, but I just came across this on the trail status:

https://home1.nps.gov/applications/glac ... s.cfm?t=NF
TRAIL CLOSED: Fromm Upper Kintla campground to junction with Brown Pass for carcass and bear activity per N12 T. Cheatum 7/6/19


No doubt temporary, but a bit of a show stopper for the Boulder to Brown Pass area.

This is a perfect example of the need for flexibility in Glacier hiking plans. Even after scoring a permit and making extensive transportation plans for the Northern Traverse something like this can easily throw it all into a cocked hat.

Looks like Boulder Pass re-opened as of the latest trail status.

You may now resume your Northern Traverses :)
