While we wanted to do more hiking while we were here, the trails were deserted on this particular September weekday. It was making my wife very nervousm, and made me a little nervous too, seeing as all my BC friends were telling my about the necessity of carrying bear spray ("This ain't Ontario, fella!" they'd say). So we opted to keep to the shorter trails and enjoy the easily accessible scenery. Fortunately, that isn't a bad thing in this park, with some beauty trails just off the roads.
Wells Gray is a great destination, though venture deeper into the park if you have the time.
