Now in bear news. This has been a very active spring for bears throughout the Park and the lodge has been no exception! We have had bears in camp as well as many on the trails coming up. Just a reminder that any and all food trash MUST be packed out with you if you are day hiking. This includes, most importantly, those things that you might think "Hey, this is biodegradable, I can just throw it into the woods!". Things like apple cores, orange peels and pistachio shells are some of the most dangerous things to both bears and humans when tossed carelessly to the side of the trail. Please help protect both yourselves and the bears and be vigilant about food trash in the back country!
