A very nice day. Unfortunately there were many large groups of mountain bikers, all mostly very courteous but one group who actually said we hikers should step off the trail for them. Moving to the side wasn’t good enough. I wish these kids didn’t get so many trophies along the way. They need to be taught some respect. Many parts of the trail become narrow and easy to slide off when dodging bikes. Especially when you can’t hear them until they slide behind you screaming LEFT. By the way bikers, hikers have the right of way in such (seldom) situations. IMBA offers great guidelines to share the trail. Other than that it was worth the time out.
