Plan Your Trip to Great Bear in the Summer

Plan on Having a Great Time at Great Bear.

When you come to Great Bear in the summer, be prepared to explore nature at its finest. You can print out our Summer Trail Guide before you come to Great Bear or get one at the entrance to the park. 

Bring good walking shoes, sunscreen, water and snacks for your trip. You can even bring a picnic along to enjoy the beautiful trails. Pets are welcome on the trails, but be sure they’re leashed. Read our Tips for Your First Visit
