I got out for a conditioning hike to Indian Point today with Lori and Audrey. This hike has a two-mile section of steep switch backs that will get you sweating. I was getting a good workout in when some heading down warned us of seeing a bear up ahead. At that point we grouped up, made lots of noise and slowed our pace. We did not see the bear and that was what we wanted but we did not get as good of a workout in. It was a nice sunny day but a little warm in the afternoon. The hike was about 8 miles and 2800 ft. elevation gain.
