Park remains partially CLOSED<div class="ExternalClass1FBC3D44D7524B76BF912323BB1C2897"><div>Following a recent wildfire, some areas of the park remain closed (<a href="/services/parks/Documents/MINmap2-partialClosureLodgeClosures.pdf" target="_blank">see map</a>). Areas most impacted by wildfire will be monitored over the winter to understand the full extent of the impact on the landscape. Because steep terrain affected by wildfire can be susceptible to erosion and landslides, safety assessments will be conducted on soil stability as well as on fire-damaged trees. This work is expected to take several months and the findings will be used to create recovery plans. Please follow posted safety signs and stay out of closed areas. Thanks for your cooperation and patience.<br></div></div>True

Filming is weather-dependent so closures will be intermittent. During filming closures, visitors will not be able to access the lodge or the areas around it (<a href="/services/parks/Documents/MINmap2-partialClosureLodgeClosures.pdf" target="_blank">see map</a>).
