Three bears of a similar description about a month ago along the Rock Creek Nature Trail Road. In that situation the bears held their ground and the hiker went around.
Tahoe National Forest Trails Coordinator has been alerted and wanted us to pass this information along:
Three bears have been sighted recently along the Harmony Trail and the Rock Creek Road west of the Hoot trail. They are possibly a mother and her two larger/older cubs. The two presumably younger bears had an altercation with two dogs in the most recent incident, and would not move out of the road in the incident of a month ago.
