you can't give the trail a bad rating because someone encountered a bear. your hiking in the middle of the woods, you should almost expect it.

My friend just told me he was hiking this trail today with his dogs. They encountered a bear (he said by the north terminus by Rt 23 in Newfoundland) who wouldn't budge. The dogs were within eight feet of it and barking but it would not move on. My friend had to grab the dogs by their harness and drag them away going right past the bear. He said the encounter was "chilling".
