Friday August 14. A mountain biker was riding up uprooted trail and surprised a bear at close range as he came around the berm. The bear ran off a short distance then stood up on it’s hind legs to get a better look and/or scent. This is normal behaviour as bears are curious by nature.
Remember to make noise to warn bears of your presence and avoid surprise encounters.
