Hiking questions?

I plan a trip for 2008 or 2009, and it is hiking in Alaska. I ask people with previous experience and know a few questions. What time of year is best to hike? Winter? Spring? Summer? Fall? I'm thinking about the winter because I think it would be safer in terms of bear attacks. I know most is a season of hibernation during the winter, so it considers this a decent time to go. I understand that the elements are harder in this time of year. Can someone guide me in the right direction and gives me added advice? Thank you.

I have never hiked in Alaska but I've been in some of the most sought after locations in the continental U.S., said these are some basic walking tips: my favorite season is winter, those parts of trails that are rough areas due to rocks, tree roots, etc., are covered with snow artificial easy walking if your prepared with snowshoes or crampons if needed, but most of the time the snow can be as difficult or bottled are needed – winter temps will not be a problem if your layers correctly, but common sense is very important (for bail out if the conditions deteriorate )…. Summer brings the crowds and lots and lots of mistakes … spring the climate is more unstable, it may rain, snow, sleet, sun are all in the same day — 25 degrees with the snow conditions are much better and safer than 35-40 degrees and rain fall ….. is a great time with cooler temperatures fewer errors / crowds, but the bears are most active during this time if you are concerned .. However, do not plan your trip based on bear attacks, which are rare and easy to avoid – you're more likely to die in a plane crash on the way
