I think it's about 23 miles between the two campsites, but I don't have the 
book handy so I'm not sure.

As to closing the trail - it depends on how bad the blowdowns are and how 
bad the erosion is.  They had a major storm last fall that caused a lot of 
erosion in the park (especially on the Going to the Sun Road).  It may have 
washed out the trail.

On the PCT they closed the trail near Deep Creek for a year after the big 
fire there because of washouts.
