hiking

I live at the base of the cliffs and walk in this area frequently. I would recommend Bear spray as we have had some stubborn bears here the past few years. This past fall my husband and son were hiking near this trail and were charged 2 times by a black bear. My husband yelled at the bear and pulled his gun and was ready (he is a cop and hunter) but thankfully the bear decided not to follow through with the threat. In all my years living here and hiking in the woods near this trail I have never encountered an issue like that but I have bear spray now and will always have it on me after this.
