I've heard that it's a good idea to wear bells on your clothing and carry pepper spray in the event it becomes necessary to use it.

It's also a good idea to know what kind of bears are in the area. One way to tell is by examining the droppings. Black bear droppings may have berry seeds in them. Grizzly bear droppings may smell like pepper and have bells and bits of clothing in them.
