Bigfoot Found in the Redwoods
Simple. He loves the redwoods, the world's tallest trees. And Humboldt County has the tallest, largest and oldest stands of them in the world. In fact, half of the world's old growth redwoods are in the county, mostly in Redwood National & State Parks and along the renowned Avenue of the Giants.
Bigfoot often escapes to the nearby mountains, especially around Willow Creek, which is where the first so-called Bigfoot was encountered in 1958, and where the famous Patterson-Gimlin footage of a walking Bigfoot was filmed in 1967. Today Willow Creek is home to the largest Bigfoot museum and the largest annual celebration honoring the big fellow, Bigoot Days over Labor Day weekend.
The tall trees on the Redwood Coast include not one but three drive-thru redwoods. So if you want to visit the place where the legend of Bigfoot began, contact us so we can help arrange a sighting of the hairy hominid of Humboldt for you today. Info@redwoods.info or 800-346-3482.
