  • Perfect especially at the time of the salmon migration, when the Brooks River is full of Red Sockeye Salmon. Here, there are many places to watch, even on the platform near the bridge or the second platform beneath the Brooks falls.

Therefore it may well be that the bridge is temporarily blocked because the brown bears like to stop at the bridge! From the bridge, you have a great look at the mouth of the Brook River with its many arms in the Lakes, where time and again brown bears roam around.
