WEST GLACIER, MONT. - The Avalanche Lake Trail is open. The trail was recently closed due to the Avalanche Wildland Fire. 

Fire activity remains minimal on the Avalanche Wildland Fire due to suppression actions and recent moisture and cooler temperatures. The fire area is located on Mount Brown near Avalanche Lake on the west side of the park. The fire area will continue to be monitored and additional suppression activities will be implemented as appropriate. Some smoke may be visible from locations within the park. The fire area is closed to the public.  

For additional park information, please visit Glacier National Park's website at www.nps.gov/glac or call park headquarters at 406-888-7800.
