Mist Creek Professional Reviews and Guides
"A long backpacking route through a remote section of the park, highlighted by the uncommon openness of the Pelican Valley and good fishing in the Upper Lamar River. The Pelican Valley is a fantastic slice of wild nature, and that’s why the grizzly bear likes it too. The area is a favorite haunt of the big bear, and the National Park Service has imposed special regulations to reduce the impact of human use on grizzly behavior. This is great for the bear, but it limits the options for backpackers. Regulations prevent any overnight camping in the valley. Plus, the area remains closed until July 15; after that you can only be in Pelican Valley between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m., with parties of four or more hikers recommended."
