    Peter Thomas reviewed Mount Equinox Trail

    Nice steady hike to top. Great views of surrounding mountains. Wild flowers coming in. Trail in best condition I’ve seen it. Black flies not bad with steady breeze

    Peter Thomas reviewed Naval Run - Black Forest Trail Loop

    11 months ago

    This is an interesting area with many other trails in addition to Naval Run. You cross a stream to start and then shortly thereafter cross again (if you are doing the trail counter clockwise). We missed this turn and hiked merrily along another very nice trail until we noticed our error. Another thing: this trail is remote and does not seem heavily trafficked. About halfway into the hike we encountered a black bear and cubs eating blueberries. This was on an old mountain track and we were able to see them from 100 yards away. They did not retreat, so we turned the loop into an out and back hike. If you plan to do this hike, I would recommend making sufficient noice some of the more densely vegetated areas so you do not inadvertently startle an animal. We were staying overnight in Slate Run and while leaving this morning a 6:30am encountered another bear on the far side of the bridge. A much easier feeling as we were in our car. i have been reading bearsmart.com to brush up on how to safely manage bear encounters. Note: I would definitely return here as the trails are in great shape and the hike is beautiful.

    Came upon a large black bear while descending the blue trail. Was within 40 yards The bear watched while I slowly retreated back up hill. Quite an adrenaline spike. Stay alert!

    Beautiful open vistas. Check for tics after walk and keep alert for rattle snakes. Start early in day!
