Bear activity in Jasper National Park has increased this summer. We know of a couple campground and trail closures. This situation can change quickly over the course of the summer. We advise checking in with park rangers to determine the situation at the time of your arrival. If the trails shown on the map are closed, you can ride PR 16 north out of Jasper (the town).

The park posts a weekly bear report here: https://www.pc.gc.ca/en/pn-np/mtn/ours-bears/miseajour-update/jasper

Important park bulletins are posted here: https://www.pc.gc.ca/apps/scond/Rec_Rep_E.asp?opark=100244


What we know as of July 23, 2018:

Wapiti and Whistlers campgrounds are closed at this time due to bear activity.

Sections of Trail Complex 7 are closed. While it doesn't appear this is the GD Canada route, be advised it could be closed as well.
