Is bear spray a necessity in Yellowstone/GT for front-country hiking?

Jump to last reply

My DH are starting to pack for our trip to Yellowstone and GT next week. We are very excited to get outside and far away from NYC and do some hiking and see some gorgeous scenery. We went to REI last night to pick up a few things and had a discussion about the bear spray. I saw on the GT website that there's a bear alert currently. Is this something to be concerned about? We're not doing any serious overnight back-country hiking nor camping -- just day hiking trips in GT and Ystone (staying at Colter Bay, Mammoth, and OFI) We didn't buy the spray but are wondering if we should get it when we arrive in Jackson next Thursday evening? We do have bear bells from our trip to Denali a few years ago ....

thanks!
