Black bear cub spotted

I saw a black bear cub on the trail to Little Rock Pond from Clear Pond. He was looking at me maybe around 10-15 meters down the trail at the top of a hill and he ran off. I turned around not wanting to get in between the cub and the mom.

Thanks for sharing this sighting Daniel - that's the first observation we have of bears in the Clear Pond area!
