The first 1.5 miles is probably the worst but the trees are not large so I was able to step over most of them without much trouble. Farther down the trail there are good sections and bad sections so a GPS is helpful if you want to stay on track. About 4 miles down I spotted a black bear. I waited for Chris to catch up and we slowly proceeded down the trail until we caught sight of the bear. We took a few photos but Chris's view was blocked by a branch. As we started to slowly hike again the bear ran off. About five miles down the trail climbs up on the right. I missed the turn and waited just around the bend. I was wondering what was taking Chris so long so I back tracked and realized my mistake. I found the trail and caught up to Chris. We stopped to eat at the end of Bear Wallow and then hiked back to Gobbler's Point Trail for the ascent to the road. We hiked the road using one short cut suggested by Chris and finished after a long day.
