The northern section of the Moose-Wilson Road, between Murie Ranch Junction and north of the Laurance S. Rockefeller Preserve, is temporarily closed to all visitors including motorists, cyclists, and hikers. Visitors can access the Laurance S. Rockefeller Preserve from the south. There is currently no access to the Death Canyon Trailhead.

Black and grizzly bears are currently eating berries along the Moose-Wilson Road. The road is closed for human safety and the protection of the bears. Park staff will monitor the situation and will reopen the road when conditions allow. The road could be temporarily closed through the weekend or longer.   

Rangers remind the public to "Be Bear Aware." To learn more about recreating in bear country visit the park Safety in Bear Country page.
