A parking lot at Hidden Lake Territorial Park has been closed due to bear sightings.
According to a GNWT release the public is being asked to stay away from the Cameron Falls Trail in the park, located on the Ingraham Trail about 47 kilometres east of Yellowknife.
The temporary blockade restricting access to the parking lot was installed to ensure public safety.
“The public is reminded not to feed wildlife and report any bear sightings to Environment and Natural Resources (ENR),” the release said. “The Departments of ENR and Industry, Tourism and Investment appreciate the public’s patience and cooperation.”
