YELLOWKNIFE (September 3, 2015) – The public is asked to refrain from using the Cameron Falls Trail and parking lot that are located in Hidden Lake Territorial Park until further notice due to bear sightings in the area. Hidden Lake Park is on the Ingraham Trail approximately 47 km east of Yellowknife.

A temporary blockade is restricting access to the Hidden Lake Territorial Park parking lot to ensure public safety at this time.

The public is reminded not to feed wildlife and report any bear sightings to Environment and Natural Resources (ENR). Bear safety information is available at www.enr.gov.nt.ca/programs/bears/bear-safety
