Started up the Little Si trail at 6:45 AM, only one other car in the parking lot. After turning on to the Boulder Garden trail, about half way between the Little Si trail and the Old Si turn-off I encountered a medium sized black bear. When I spotted him, I stopped to assess the situation. I took a step back and happened to make some noise doing so, and he quickly moved away. Should have been using my bear bell since he had no idea I was there until he heard me! Otherwise uneventful trip, did not see another person on the old trail, although I saw a few on the regular Si trail on the way back down. Trail is in great shape, with no mud. Great start to the weekend!
