Bear Safety Tips During Hiking

Anchorage is bear country. Learn to be safe outdoors. Your safety, and that of the bears and other trail users, depends on it.

Below are tips to keep you safe in bear country:

  • Buddy up. You are safer in a group.
  • Make Noise. This will prevent you from surprising a bear.
  • Use your senses to stay aware. No headphones!
  • Carry bear spray. Have it accessible and know how to use it.
  • Don’t feed bears. Handle food, fish and attractants responsibly.
  • Slow down. High speed equals high risk in bear habitat.
  • Leash your pets. Off-leash pets can bring bears back to you.
  • Never run from a bear!
