    Marble Mountain Wilderness: Bear bag or can?

    Anyone familiar with the bears at Marble Mountain Wilderness or the nearby Trinity Alps Wilderness? Trying to decide if I can get away with using a bear bag or if I need to pack the extra weight for a bear can. Keep in mind I am an SUL hiker so my pack has some weight and size limitations. Brining a friend with me so a bear bag would be easier to hang food for two. My little bear can, a bear boxer solo, probably won't cut it.

    Thanks Everyone!

    I dont know about your area, but if your worried about bears in my experience hanging a food bag is the best way to go. As long as the food it up and out of reach of a bear it will not matter if it smells it or not.

    Thanks guys. Going to bring my bear bag and do the Four Lakes Loop. Just talked to the ranger and he says it looks like late July/August up there.
