Bear canisters are required for hikers in the Sierra.
Northbound PCT hikers pick up their bear canister in Kennedy Meadows, northbound mile 702.2.
Purchase your bear canister from Yogi’s Books/Triple Crown Outfitters. Instead of shipping it to you, we will hold it for you at Triple Crown Outfitters, our new gear shop in Kennedy Meadows. You pick up your canister when you arrive in Kennedy Meadows. This saves you the postage cost of shipping it to you at your home, plus the postage cost of shipping it to yourself on the trail in Kennedy Meadows. Depending upon where you live, that’s potentially a $30 savings.
Pre-ordering guarantees that you will have a canister for the Sierra. In 2018, Kennedy Meadows had around 75 hikers arriving daily during the height of northbound PCT season. The majority of 2018 hikers pre-ordered their canister from Yogi’s Books/Triple Crown Outfitters.
