I love this trail! I was on it yesterday and did see a momma and baby bear. The Thimble berries are just starting to ripen and this trail has these berries along most of it. I’m guessing there will be more bear sitings over the next week to 10 days as the berries ripen and the bears hang out to eat them. Might want to avoid this trail for a bit.
