Heads Up: Solo hiker injured by bear on Beaver Ponds Trail

On the morning of Friday, May 28, 2021, a male, age 39, sustained injuries from a bear while hiking on the Beaver Ponds Trail at Mammoth Hot Springs.

The incident occurred approximately 1.5 miles from the trailhead that originates from the Old Gardiner Road.

The male was hiking alone when he encountered what he believed to be two grizzly bears. One bear made contact with the hiker and he sustained significant injuries to his lower extremities but was able to hike out on his own.

He was transported to Livingston Hospital by park ambulance.

The Beaver Ponds Trail is closed until further notice. Bear management staff are sweeping the trail to ensure no other hikers are on the trail.

There are no further details to share at this time.

Be bear aware:
- Stay 100 yards away from bears at all times.
- Carry bear spray and know how to use it.
- Be alert. Watch for fresh tracks, s**t, and feeding sites.
- Make noise.
- Hike in groups of three or more people.
- Don't hike at dawn, dusk, or at night, when grizzlies are most active.
- Don’t run from a bear.

This is the first incident of a bear injuring a person in Yellowstone in 2021. The last incident was in June 2020, when a grizzly bear knocked a woman to the ground and scratched her thigh.


Where will you find your next adventure? Peninsula State Park, perhaps?!

Over the last year, Peninsula State Park has gone through a major transformation by upgrading facilities and infrastructure across the park including:
- New shower restroom facility in the South Nicolet campground
- Restroom upgrades at South Nicolet and Weborg Point campgrounds
- 11 new vault toilet restrooms
- Construction of a new sanitary station (dump/fill station)
- New restroom facility at Northern Sky Theater
- Nature Center addition (will remain closed until facilities reopen to the public)
- Resurfacing of 400 campsites
- Campsite upgrades including new grills and fire rings
- 23 campsites upgraded to electrical service
- New drinking fountains added throughout the campgrounds

In addition to the new facilities, some favorite amenities are set to open for the season with protocols in place to ensure the safety of visitors.
- Peninsula State Park Golf Course and clubhouse will open to golfers May 1
- Eagle Bluff Lighthouse will open for tours beginning May 15
- The Nicolet Beach Camp Store will open Memorial Day weekend, May 28
- Northern Sky Theater opens for the season June 14

Work at Peninsula doesn’t stop there. In the next 1-2 years we’ll be making considerable upgrades to various trails, nature center and property roads.

Due to unforeseen construction delays, the Eagle Tower at Peninsula State Park is not open to the public. The DNR estimates the tower will reopen in the coming weeks.

Watch: Large Bear Hits the Jackpot in California Campsite Raid

A large bear with a big appetite was caught on camera by campers as it raided their campsite and came back for seconds and even thirds in California’s Sierra Nevada Mountains.


We still have job openings at a number of locations, listed below (plenty of options!). Seasonal staff work at Michigan’s state parks, state forest campgrounds, boating access sites and harbors and they help answer visitor questions, register campers, clean park buildings, mow grass and more.

Here are some videos on how the National Parks were created. As the past often repeats itself, you may want to watch this series to be ready for possible future events. It will take trillions of dollars and many years to repair the damage from the environmental disasters we are likely to face. Though it is possible to go back to a safer environment governments will have to hire thousands, creating wonderful job opportunities.

In coordination with the San Benito County Public Health Department, Hollister Hills SVRA is temporarily fully closed, effective at the end of the day today. ICUs are filling up and we need to do our part to prevent California from experiencing a surge on top of a surge. The park will reopen when the Regional Stay at Home Order is lifted for the San Joaquin Region. #StopTheSurge #COVID19

Yellowstone National Park

News Release: Superintendent Cam Sholly announced today the selection of Mike Tranel as the new deputy superintendent of Yellowstone National Park. He will arrive in the park in early February 2021.

Tranel, a 35-year veteran of the National Park Service (NPS), is currently the superintendent of the Powder River Group and oversees Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area, Little Bighorn Battlefield and Devils Tower national monuments and Fort Laramie National Historic Site. He has served in that position since 2018.

As deputy superintendent, Tranel will essentially serve as the chief operating officer of the park. Yellowstone is one of the largest operations in the NPS with 750 employees and a total budget exceeding $65 million.

“We’re very pleased to welcome Mike and his family to Yellowstone,” said Superintendent Sholly. “Mike has managed a wide range of complex operations and programs spanning Alaska to Washington, DC. He has also worked very successfully across boundaries with many partners, something essential to Yellowstone’s success.”
