Hike at your own risk
Hiking is another fun activity that tourists can do while visiting Alaska. There are plenty of hiking trails deemed safe by park authorities. Other places, while generally safe, are home to bears and other wild animals. There are plenty of signs on hiking trails that are both inviting and threatening. We guess they mean you can have fun, but if you’re face to face with a bear, there’s nothing anybody can do for you.
With over 60 bear attacks every year, it’s safe to assume that some people either don’t see these signs or don’t take them seriously. We’re warning you guys right now. Alaska is beautiful, and you’ll enjoy hiking there, but you won’t enjoy the bears very much.
