A local man and his daughter were hiking in Michaux State Forest. On this particular occasion, they encounter an 8-foot-tall male Bigfoot after looking back down the trail where they had just passed.
I recently received the following account:
"I was in woods almost from the time I could walk so I know every creature that lives in the forest and mountains around my home in Adams County in south-central Pennsylvania. I've even seen tracks of a couple of animals that the Game Commission say don't exist here, such as wolves and mountain lions. But the story I have to tell you isn't about any of those. It's about an encounter my daughter and I had in the Spring of 2019 with a Bigfoot.
"We were hiking in Michaux State Forest close to my home. We would do this at least once a week we always took the same trail, an unused forestry road to be precise. We would walk along the road for about a mile and a half to a spring that ran across it. There we would sit down and rest before we hiked back out. Sometimes we would bring something along to eat but most of the time we just sat there and listened.
She had gotten interested in a couple of YouTube channels about Bigfoot and gifting them. On the day in question, we had brought some apples to leave. I thought to myself some raccoon or deer is going to get a free meal but if it made my daughter happy.
We had just left the spring when my senses told me that we were being watched. I know that sensation because I have also been in combat. Being hunted is like no other feeling. I stopped and looked around. I didn't see anything and I turned to catch up with my daughter a few steps ahead of me. That's when I heard a slight coughing sound to our right. My daughter heard it too because I saw her eyes grow in size. She said, "What was that?" I said it's just the deer warning the rest of the herd that we're here. I knew that it wasn't a deer and so did she Just keep walking I told her. We started on again. We hadn't gone too much farther when a tree limb snapped behind us. It was pretty close, but off in the brush. We both stopped and turned toward the sound.
We stood there quietly looking into the dense brush for a couple of minutes when I saw movement out of the corner of my eye. Turning my head I saw a creature standing about forty yards down the trail from where we had just come. My daughter saw it too. She took a deep breath but stayed quiet. We stood there looking at him (Yes. It was a male). He was about 7 to 8 feet tall, broad in the shoulders and he was very muscular. His hair was about three or four inches long and was a rust color. He stood there looking at us. He didn't make a sound. Neither did we after what felt like an eternity, but really was only a couple of minutes. H then he raised his left hand with the palm toward us and moved it like he was pushing something. My daughter and I just looked at him, then at each other, and then back at him. I shrugged. He made the motion again but this time he grunted softly this time. We got the message. He was telling us it was time for us to go. So we turned around and started walking. My daughter wanted to look back but something told me not to let her. So we just walked to the truck.
Once we reached the truck and before we could get in we heard a series of loud whoops coming from the area that we had just exited. We just looked at each other and promised not to tell her mother about this. If her mother had found out she would never let my daughter in the woods again.
We have been back to the area many times but have never come across anything other than one indistinct impression of a footprint measuring roughly 19 and a half inches long. Also, I have been there by myself. On one occasion, while I didn't see or hear anything, I got the feeling that I was not welcomed" J
NOTE: I contacted the witness and got the location of the encounter. It was along near Woodrow Rd, approximately 1/4 mile east of the Appalachian Trail. It's an area close to what locals refer to as the primitive campsite #4. There have been numerous sightings throughout the park in the past. Michaux State Forest is well-known for Bigfoot and cryptid canine activity. Lon
