bear in tree

A CLEVER LOT — Black bears are good climbers, and have managed to retrieve food bags hung in trees by backpackers along a section of the Appalachian Trail In Haywood County in the Harmon Den area.

A bear activity alert has been issued along the Haywood County section of the Appalachian Trail.

Camping is temporarily prohibited along the trail in Haywood County — from the Big Creek area in the Smokies to Max Patch — because of a bear with cubs continuously coming too close to campers with food. The trail remains open to hiking.
