What is best time of the year to go and see bear activity? What are the best areas to observe from?

The best day i ever had was a day in the middle of week late August it was drizzling rain and there were not many people. Saw about 10. Early Spring and late fall can both be good. Do not even think about going there on weekend in fall . About the only thing you are gonna see is the rear end of car in front of you .

In the fall everybody and their brother, sister and long lost cousin visits.

Other times of the year are less crowded still a very visited place.

Lots of deer and turkeys too

Late summer is usually the best for just seeing bears.

You should definitely check out Abrams creek falls. The trailhead is about halfway around the loop. It's well-marked and easy to follow. I think it's 2 1/2 miles to the falls. It's a fairly easy trail; it's rocky in places though.
