Great hike with beautiful vistas, in bear frequenting area (gulp)

Hiking in the Park is well-marked, and the trails are well-maintained. Again, you are in bear country, on their turf, and all prudent precautions must be taken. There are several ranger stations, and lectures, pamphlets, and instructional videos are available for all to learn how to negotiate a safe visit alongside the wildlife. That said, YNP is nature’s playground, and we humans are visitors, so every respect must be taken. In the summer, no hike should be embarked upon without bringing along the holy trinity of supplies – water, bear spray, and mosquito spray. Essentials!
