back/sidestep away slowly, do not run or charge at it⁣

don’t drop your pack for it⁣

if you see a cub, mama is around somewhere so slowly get yourself out of the area⁣

if possible, hike in a group⁣

bring bear spray, have it handy and know how to use it⁣

talk so the bear knows you’re human vs. another species (like prey)⁣

make yourself as large looking as possible⁣

talk so the bear knows you’re human vs. another species (like prey)⁣

make yourself as large looking as possible⁣

don’t hang around in general unless you’re a good distance away, just keep moving⁣

keep your distance from the bears; if you are closer than 50 feet from one, keep hiking & don’t linger⁣

tell your fellow hikers when you see one on the trail you saw a bear so they can prepare⁣

prioritize your safety over getting pics, be aware of the bear’s behavior⁣

Do you hike through bear country? What are your tips for keeping yourself & the bears safe on the trails?⁣
