Hike of the month Brooks Falls Trail Katmai National Park The first people in Katmai arrived about 9,000 years ago. The Brooks River has some of the highest density of artifacts and arctic small tools. There are also a collection of Katmai peoples traditional houses, which date from about 3,000 to 3,800 years ago. Katmai National Park remained without park service development until 1950. There are still many remote areas in the park that can only be accessed through hiking routes and kayaks. Today, the bear orientation room in the Brooks Camp Visitor Center is the original park service building dating back to 1955. In recent years, the number of bears visiting Brooks River has grown to almost 100. Each comes to feast upon the annual run of salmon in the mile and a half long Brooks River. Many bears encountered on Brooks Falls Trail may actually be older than they look. Brown bears can live up to 30 years, although 20 years or less is more common. June 2011 National Parks 6
