Katmai National Park and Preserve is on a peninsula in southern Alaska. Its wild landscape spans tundra, forests, lakes and mountains. The park is known for the many brown bears which are abundant.
Katmai National Park is one of the best bear-viewing places in the world. Each July, as the salmon make their annual run, the brown bears flock to the rivers to feast on salmon.
The Brooks Falls Trail is what connects Brooks Camp to the Brooks Falls Viewing Platform. It is a flat, easy-to-walk, 1.2 mile round trip trail.
