Postings are trails or areas of the park that have been posted as a warning to visitors to be especially cautious. Postings typically are put in place to warn visitors of heightened safety concerns in the area, such as frequent bear or mountain lion sightings close to a trail. The areas remain open and visitors should proceed with caution.
