I just got stalked in the mountains

This is really bothering me. Why would someone follow me? What would be someone’s intentions?

Today I went hiking in a relatively new area. I’d been going here for a few weeks. My usual route is on the south side of the same mountain. As I was heading down noticed two very large figures charging down a hill closer to the top of the mountain and they seemed to be coming right towards me. They were about 1/3 of a mile away. As soon as I glanced they stopped and we stared at each other. I didn’t think much until when I looked back they were yet coming again and stopped upon looking. I started walking fast down the hill I was on, once at the bottom I began following the trail I’d taken up towards that general area, the one that would get me home, literally sprint walking. I didn’t want to run yet. But I noticed they were following me from on a higher hill bordering my trail. I started cutting grass towards civilization af that point, away from them. I heard them getting closer. Two men with strangely high voices. When I got to the bottom of another hill I saw them pop up again, looking down at me with expressionless stares. Now it was sickeningly obvious that they were after me. I ran. Bolted towards the last hill which would take me to the edge of town, hopped a fence leading to a relatively crowded paved trail. I had to stop and pretend like nothing was up because I was also extremely embarrassed by that point. Freaking out like that in front of strangers. I noticed the two figures managed their way to the paved trail. Now for some more details:

The last drop towards the city I got pinned between some cliffs. I literally had nowhere else to run and I thought I was about to die. I took my chances and climbed down and even had to do quite a bit of bush whacking. Got cut on my wrists and hands from doing this before getting to the trail. Now all this seems like a nightmare. And what’s fucked up this is just like the recent nightmares I’ve had of me running through the wilderness getting chased. I was 2 miles north of home when I got to the edge of the city and had to have my dad give me a ride home. Should I be worried? Why would people chase me like that for no reason?? I didn’t break the law, or do anything except mind my business. I didn’t think it’d be a good fight, me vs two people with who knows what they had. Now I’m not going to be able to enjoy hiking ever again.

It’s just alarming that someone would chase me considering my height. Most people think I’m creepy and I look rough around the edges.

I’ve been hiking a lot. It’s never good to run into people you don’t know them because they can be dangerous but maybe they were lost. And needed directions. Another option is that they were dangerous. I’ve always been with someone else while hiking. Take someone els to go with you next time. Maybe this will help. It’s a good thing you ran unless you felt comfortable with stopping to say hi. Good luck next time.
