Drought conditions have limited food sources for wildlife; therefore we are expecting a high occurrence of bear sightings this year. Although bears are beautiful to look at, they are wild creatures and can be dangerous if provoked and attracted. Click here for more Be Bear Aware information.
You brought it in heavy, why not take it out light? Be mindful of your consumption and pack out all trash when you leave the forest. Remember not to burn your trash. If you’re not camping in a developed camp or picnic ground, remember the Leave No Trace principles. Visit: http://www.lnt.org/ for Leave No Trace information.
Some trails near and within the Pecos Wilderness are closed due to potential flooding from the Jaroso Fire. Other trails within the Wilderness are not recommended for travel due to numerous post fire hazards.
