Grizzly encounters

Bridge over Hell Roaring Creek is now out until next summer.  It is extremely dangerous, even life threatening to attempt a creek crossing without the bridge.

On July 14th a STMS crew put the bridge over Hell Roaring Creek in for the summer. There were two reports of grizzly encounters over the weekend of July 16th, with one group encountering two different grizzlies.   You are in grizzly country, so please, be bear aware.    No concerns were reported about the road access to the trailhead other than the usual recommendation about having a high-clearance vehicle to manage some deep water-bars and over-the-road flooding.
