Hiking With Bears

A man goes for a walk down a trail in Katmai National Park in Alaska and soon finds himself hiking with bears. The Grizzly mom and her two young cubs didn’t seem to be bothered by the man on the trail who decided the best course of action was to walk backward towards his campsite. I would imagine encountering bears on the trail is exciting enough without them following you. I wonder if they would have followed him if he had moved off the trail into the woods and let them pass? It appears like they were just trying to get to the water by the campsite as that’s where they are shown at the end of the video.
