    Montreat - Trail Closed for Bears

    FYI - I saw that Rainbow Trail is closed due to bear activity. This might change how you get to rattlesnake or heartbreak.

    I was charged by the momma a few weeks ago when I was running, but it seems it has gotten worse. Panzy tourists, it's just a bear, come on.

    I live close to there and use it for weekday evening rides. More often than not, I see a bear. I had one with 3 cubs stand up to me about 20 ft away 2 weeks ago, but she turned and ran. I didn't know they closed it so thanks for the heads up.

    I was semi-charged at Bent Creek this morning around 8:00 headed up to Five Points. Momma with 3 cubs...cubs were getting big since first seeing them in spring. A little snorting, and then she hauled ass over the trail edge headed down toward the connector trail. This has happened several times to me this year. Same bear and similar locations. Best thing to do is stop and give her space. They'll move on.
