Description:  Brooks Falls is a magnet for bears.  They are protected, almost worshipped by the keepers at the park.  A raised walkway and platform takes visitors right to the edge of the river at the falls so that they can safely view the bears in their natural surroundings, try to catch sockeye salmon as they make their way upriver to their spawning grounds.
