Caution: Beware of Dangerous Wildlife!
 (All Sections, July 9th 2020)

As the weather warm up, wildlife becomes more active. 
Please take extra care to avoid dangerous situations and pay attention to your surroundings when walking on the trail.
 You also need to make sure to bring first-aid supplies (ex. poison removers) with you.

-How to steer clear of dangerous wildlife along the trail-

■Black Bears■
-Make your presence known by making noise (ex. radio, talk, sing, bear bell) while hiking.
-Avoid waking at dawn and dusk when bears are most active.
-Do not leave food or garbage.
-If you see a bear cub, never try to approach it! The mother will probably be around to protect it. Be especially careful about this during the spring season.

■Snakes■
-Do not poke with a stick or other objects, and wait for the snake to leave the trail.

■Bees■
-If you see bees, get away from them (Refrain from swatting or flailing your arms)

■Ticks■
-Wear long pants, socks, and long-sleeved shirts (Tuck your shirt into pants and tuck your pants into your boots or socks).
-Use insect repellent.
-Check yourself (clothing, shoes, and other equipment) occasionally for ticks.

■Leeches■
-Wear long pants, socks, and long-sleeved shirts (Tuck your shirt into pants and tuck your pants into boots or socks).
-Apply or spray alcohol, mint spray or leech repellent.
