Often bears that are walking up river reach the pool to find that it may contain a large male they do not wish to confront. They by pass the lower pool and walk under the platform to move further up the pool before entering the water again. And for some reason the guests do not mind.
The fall grizzly bear watching trips are from two viewing platforms located on a man made spawning channel adjacent to the Glendale River. If you go to to “Categories” and select “Wildlife Tour Itinerary” and follow the instructions you will have an excellent aerial view of the platforms. The platforms are about 3 meters (10 feet) off the ground, covered with room form eight to ten people but we limit tours to a maxim of five. The bears are fishing for salmon although they do stop to eat grass and berries.
