We are a family of four adults coming to Banff for a week. Unfortunately, due to work related meetings, I will only be able to get on the trails at noon on certain days. What is the safest time to come back from the trails ? I read that sunset is around 10 pm, but last year while hiking in Whistler at the same time, it was getting dark in the forest by 8 pm.
Is it safe to hike until 8 pm bear-wise ? We are reading about bear safety and my mum developed a pretty bad case of ''bearophobia'' since those are Grizzly bears. Everybody else is pretty cool about it, but I want to keep us as safe as possible.Edited: 11 July 2017, 03:33
