During the last decade there has been several visitor safety incidents in Quttinirpaaq National Park (QNP) related to severe flooding. Since most rivers in QNP are glacier fed, warm temperatures have a dramatic effect on river depth. Warmer than average temperatures in recent years have meant that river levels are higher for longer periods of time. Certain areas of the park, including glacier toes and river crossings along hiking routes, have consequently become more dangerous. Although a park closure is possible at any time, we recommend that people refrain from visiting QNP from mid-July to August 1st, when the risk to visitor safety is heightened and park closures are more likely.
