Bear sightings behind the bike park and on Ridgemont road in Fernie

Thursday October 6.  I saw these bear prints yesterday afternoon on Ridgemont Road.  They lead to Broken Hip trail, along the berms and right down through the corkscrew.  Bears, like mountain bikers, love the bermed corners.  A bear and cub were also seen running into the bushes on the trail behind the bike park. I’m very happy to hear that this mom and cub are still weary of people.

The safest bear enounter is one prevented.  Make noise to warn bears of your presence and avoid surprising them at close range.
