I was at Apex yesterday and I felt that I saw cat prints on the trail. Thanks for the post!

I saw this sign at the junction of the Mesa Trail and the Bear Canyon Trail Saturday, 12/1:


The "wildlife activity" closure seems intentionally vague; they also would have closed the trail for raptor nesting or bear activity. It would be nice to know what to look for. I brought a ball of yarn and some little mousies to distract any big felines that I encountered. I came up Shadow Canyon, and the first two hikers that I encountered had dogs. Both said that their dogs had been acting "funny." I spent a lot of time looking over my shoulder, but didn't see anything out of the ordinary. There was supposed to be an inch of fresh snow, but I didn't see any fresh snow until I hit about 8,000 feet. I saw canine pawprints without any human footprints nearby, probably coyote. No big kitty prints.
