mike - my son,at age 9, ran right into a bear on a blind curve on the Alum Cave trail...we were close behind him on the trail but l think the bear was scared worse than him.   Every wild  animal should be given space and made aware of your presence f you see him before he sees you.  Loud noise will send Park bears scurrying in most cases.  camping in the backcountry is where the bear encounters can become dicey--and then only if you have food in your tent or left in bear-reach around the camp.   a good rope and a high limb for the food stuff bag is the easy way to avoid post midnight issues.   Frankly l am far more mindful of snakes and boars when l am in the backcountry.

What freaks me out is the reports of bear coming in and sniffing around tents in the front country at night. If I woke up to a bear sniffing around my tent I would probably crap myself.
"Often, I have been exhausted on trout streams, uncomfortable, wet, cold, briar scarred, sunburned, mosquito-bitten, but never, with a fly rod in my hand, have I been in a place that was less than beautiful."
