Due to a bountiful berry crop this year, park visitors are asked to be extra vigilant about bear safety while hiking, recreating and backcountry camping in bear country. Avoid areas with berry bushes, strictly follow all preventative practices when in bear country. Bear Smart
Remember, bears depend on the berry crop to gain enough weight to survive the winter; please respect their need to feed themselves and their young. Should you come across any wildlife closures, please follow the directions; never cross into closed areas.
