Grizzly bear chase down trail inside Katmai National Park.

“I was hiking to Brooks Falls in Katmai National Park when I heard loud footsteps coming down the trail. I looked up and saw two bears running straight for us! We jumped off the path and the first bear ran past us, shortly followed by the second bear, who was chasing him. They completely ignored us but it was still quite a rush.”

Heart pumping moment captured on camera inside Alaska’s Katmai National Park & Preserve where the owner of Gondwana Ecotours found himself caught in the middle of a grizzly bear chase. While hiking near Brooks Falls, he narrowly missed a sprinting grizzly bear, hot on the heels of another, thundered down the very path he had just been on. Alaska never ceases to amaze.
