2010, Harriman State Park, Idaho: Hikers See Bigfoot

Amy Castelli and Debbie Handy were hiking along the Heart Attack Hill trail. They were talking about tv shows and the new job the Handy applied for but had not heard anything back, when the saw something moving near the river bed.

Castelli at first thought it was a hunter or maybe a man in a camouflage suit. But Handy, who admittedly has better eyesight, recognized the figure as a Bigfoot right away.

Handy put her arm out to stop Castelli from taking another step. They both stood absolutely still, holding their breath, watching as the Bigfoot sloshed around in the wetlands around the riverbed.

The creature splashed around a bit more, taking no notice of the two ladies near by watching it. Eventually, the Bigfoot turned and ran at top speed off across the opposite field and disappeared into the trees.

Castelli and Handy love to recount how they had a hiking date with Bigfoot. Though, it is possible that the Bigfoot would characterize it as a date.

1985, Cuyahoga National Park, Ohio: Hikers Document Tree Arches

Bryan Rossington and Gary Lester were hiking in the Cuyahoga park when they noticed something odd with the a lot of the tree branches.

There appeared to be a pattern to the way various tree branches were aligned. It looked like the branches had been intentionally bent into arches. Rossington and Lester followed the arches for nearly a mile as it wove in and out of the forest. They counted nearly 150 arches in the trees.

Rossington postulated that the arches were made by art students, while Lester was convinced that the arches were made by Bigfoot. But then Lester always thought everything was made by Bigfoot.

1973, Stone State Park, Iowa: Hikers Hear Bigfoot Screams

While hiking in Stone State Park, Tim Phelby and Elaine Davidson, got an overwhelming feeling that they were being followed.

At first they chalked it up to a pot induced paranoia. After all, they were in a public park, it was entirely possible that other people were behind them on the trail.

But Elaine, being much more in tune with the paranormal, got an oppressive feeling. The only other time she felt similar feelings was when she and Tim were at the Indian Graveyard.

Elaine begged Tim to stop so she might try and contact whatever spirit was stalking them. But Tim remained intent upon moving ahead. The couple bickered back and forth. As the discussion got more heated and a bit louder, Tim was startled by a loud shriek coming from behind them.

At first it sounded like something from Mutual Of Ohama’s Wild Kingdom. The next scream was even louder and closer. Elaine started shaking and called out for the restless spirits to rest. But Tim knew after the next scream, they were hearing the mating call of the North American Sasquatch.

When the two emerged from their hike, they remained divided over what exactly they heard. And continued to contradict each other whenever they retold their encounter.

1978, Six Rivers National Forest, California: Hikers Smell Bigfoot

1978, Six Rivers National Forest, California: Hikers Smell Bigfoot

Edward Rousey and Mike Doland were hiking in Six Rivers Forest. Suddenly, everything around them got eerily quiet. No birds chirped. Not a single bug buzzed around. Even the light breeze seemed to die down.

Mike jumped when he heard a loud rustling to their left. Just as Ed stepped toward the noise, both men froze when they heard twigs snapping behind them. They feared they were surrounded. That is when they smelled it.

Or they smelled it before they heard it. A rancid stench that was part rotten eggs, onion, and the worst acid smell they ever smelled. It was clear that just a few feet away from them a Bigfoot had just relieved itself.

The two men slowly backed away, creeping back along the path they had just hiked. While the idea of catching a glimpse of a Bigfoot or gathering some scat was really appealing to them, the stench was overpowering. Both agreed it was close to getting pepper sprayed.
