Home / Safety / Moose alert

** 6/24: Moose charged a walker with leashed dogs near the Wolverine (K-Beach) trailhead around 2:30 p.m.

**6/20: Mama with two calves spotted by Spaghetti Bowl (the Bear-Goat-Wolverine-Mosquito junction) around 6:30 p.m.. Riders gave her lots of space and she didn’t react aggressively. Another mama with one calf spotted at the junction of Squirrel and Owl around 5:30 p.m. Again, riders gave her lots of space and she didn’t seem aggressive.

**6/19: Mama and calf seen near Motoboto entrance on Slikok singletrack trails.

**6/15: Cow moose spotted near the Wolverine trailhead around 3:30 p.m.

**6/8: Cow with one calf on Fox around 3 p.m., on the hillside below the water tower. Peacefully munching (please give her lots of space so she can continue snacking in peace).

**6/7: Mama moose charged bikers on Mosquito single track, near the start of Wolverine (off K-Beach) at 9 a.m. this morning.

**6/6: Moose spotted on Wolf at the bottom of the S turns around 5:30 p.m. Did not act aggressively but the bike riders didn’t get close enough to find out.

**6/5 update: A moose has been hanging around the Wolverine (K-Beach) trailhead/parking area. So far seems calm.

**6/3 update: Two walkers and a dog were charged by a cow with calves at the Wolf/Bear intersection. Everybody’s OK, but mama’s clearly still in defense mode. Please continue to give moose lots of space.

**6/2 update: Two moose reports yesterday — one on Wolverine, one up by the water tower. Mama might be on the move or we could have another one in the area. Either way, give moose lots of space!

**May 30 update: Mama moose has moved down from Bear to Wolverine (K-Beach Trailhead) now. She charged two groups of people near the Sandy Bypass around 1 p.m. today. Please use the Skyview trailhead for the rest of the day and give her a chance to chill out. When in the area in the future, please be extremely cautious! If you see a moose, IMMEDIATELY turn around and leave the area. She’s charging without any ears back, hump up warning. Don’t wait to see what she’ll do. DOGS ABSOLUTELY MUST BE ON A LEASH!


Original post: There’s a cow with two brand-new calves hanging out at the top of the Bear loop and she is cranky! She will charge upon sight of people or dogs. She was last spotted May 25 at the top of the Bear downhill, just around the first corner from the Wolf intersection.

Keep an eye and ear out for the new family if you’re in that area. If you see them, give mom lots of space! And dogs absolutely must be on a leash in that area. She is very stressed and defensive. We don’t want any people, dogs or moose to be injured. She will hopefully chill out as the babies get a little bigger, but not if she continues to be spooked by people, dogs or bikes. Let’s let her get over the new-baby jitters in peace.

And please let us know where and when you see her so we can keep trail users updated. Send us a message on Facebook or email us at
