Big eared black bear

Join Parkway rangers at 10 am on Friday, June 28 for a moderate, three mile round-trip hike to the Haw Creek “Lunch Rock.”

One of the most asked about animals on the Blue Ridge Parkway is the North American black bear. Do we have them? How have they adapted to people? Will they steal the candy bar out of my tent?

Join us to find out the answers to these questions and more. Meet 1 mile north of the Folk Art Center at Milepost 381.

Park on the dirt pull-offs on either side of the road (all four tires should be off of the pavement). Bring water, wear good walking shoes, and be prepared for changeable weather. For more information, contact 828-298-5330, ext. 304.
