We didn't get any bears, but the guides wear repellent spray if that's the case. Highly recommended and the road is suitable for walking smoothly even with children
Walked the trail at mosquito cove with 8 kids 3yrs to 8yrs. Beautiful little cove and kids enjoyed throwing rock in. Trail was nicely kept and easy enough for most abilities. Beautiful mossy trees and tons of blueberries and red huckleberries.
I really don't know how I would describe it. Breathtaking doesn't do it justice. Hubbard Glacier was spectacular also! Alaska is just majestic!
