Hiked with a friend a few weeks ago with the intention of camping on the trail. It's a beautiful hike. Pretty good workout with an overnight pack on your back. Definitely not for beginners. Crossed paths with a bear about 5 miles in. It ran away from us and we kept on hiking. Stopped to eat a few miles later and coincidentally came across bear prints in the exact location. At that point I decided to head back to my vehicle. Again, the bear was not aggressive or even curious. I'm just a very nervous person when it comes to bears. We actually heard it run away from us again when we passed back through.
