Bears are active in Grand Teton
Black and grizzly bears are roaming throughout the park--near roads, trails and in backcountry areas. Hikers and backcountry users are advised to travel in groups of three or more, make noise and carry bear spray. Visitors must stay 100 yards from bears. More »
Bears and roads are not a good combination. Bears feeding along roads quickly become habituated to vehicles and people increasing their chance of being hit by vehicles. When people stop for a closer look or to take pictures, habituated bears may become bold and approach people. Habituated bears may learn it is acceptable to frequent campgrounds or picnic areas, where they may gain access to human foods. When bears obtain human food, a very dangerous situation develops that may lead to human injury and the bear's death. Please resist the temptation to stop and get close to roadside bears.
BE BEAR AWARE
Never approach a bear.
Never feed a bear.
