The trails and forest were absolutely gorgeous, and we saw some wildlife: an eagle, squirrel, and a BEAR! As our group (8 people) was nearing the end of our hike, heading back towards the parking lot, we saw a bear on the side of the path, about 20 feet away from us. We stopped, started backing away, and the bear started to slowly come towards us. We then noticed that she had a bear cub with her. We got the hell out of there pretty quickly, and decided to take the long way back to the parking lot. You don't mess with a mama bear! Including stopping to look at the scenery at the various lookout points (we went to every one of them) and our bear detour, our hike took about 2.5 hours, at a leisurely pace.
