Bear Safety, Take Heed
Make sure you're "bear ready" should you decide to hike up Mchugh Peak. A couple trail runners were killed here a few years ago and bear/moose sitings are common. Bring bells/whistles/spray or whatever you need to alert them of your presence and keep yourself safe. However, don't worry about them so much you don't enjoy yourself. There's so much beauty to soak up; including the critters. This picture was taken by Joe Rozak on June 4th, 2004 during his ascent of Mchugh Peak with fellow Chugach enthusiast Paul Koecher.
