Safety
Rapid weather changes, wolves, mountain lions, coyotes and bears are the most common causes for concern while hiking on the island. We have a quick reference guide for trail dangers and what to do in the case you encounter one of these.
Supplies
Always bring bear spray, one litre of water per hour, a flash light, small first-aid kit, a paper print-out of the trail map, cell phone with digital GPS map and charging cable with battery backup, extra pair of laces, and appropriate clothing for weather changes.
Courtesy
Common trail courtesy is always a must! Take only what you bring in, and leave nothing but foot prints. Camp only were permitted, and be aware of fire-bans during the summer — keep smoking for the break back at the car. Stay on designated trails to prevent habitat damage. Keep music to your earbuds only.
