WEST GLACIER — More than 488,000 people visited Glacier National Park in Montana in September, a 12.5% increase over the same month last year.

The Flathead Beacon reports that the National Park Service says so far this year 2.9 million people have come to the park, a 3.5% jump over 2018.

The strong September numbers come on the heels of a busy August, when more than 771,000 people visited Glacier.

Just two months ago, year-to-date visitation was down more than 3%, with 1.6 million people coming to the park between January and July.

One likely reason for the spike in August and September visitation is that for the first time in three years, the park did not have a major wildfire.
