  • I loved the Klamath Mountains when I was on the PCT, but my views were mostly blocked by smoke going through. I’d love to get back and actually see the scenery and get a little farther west to explore some new areas on the BFT.

    Well, this is so easy! A couple of years ago I met Vern, a.k.a. Trail Dancer, while hiking the Arizona Trail. When he told me about the Bigfoot Trail, I instantly thought it would supercede the PCT for me because it would be less travelled and I’m trending toward hikes of about 300 miles anyway. Lately I’ve been hiking on the IAT in Quebec and the Florida Trail. The PNWT is high on my list too. Add to that, this is “conifer heaven” and the Bigfoot mystique and there’s really no way to avoid this trail. Note: I did not encounter the Skunk Ape in Florida!


    In the summer of 2012 I took a solo backpack trip to Dead Fall Lakes and then on up Mt. Eddy and the amazing view inspired me to find out more about the region.

    Through online research I discovered Michael Kaufmann and have both his books.

    Hoping to get up that way this summer

    I want to hike the Bigfoot Trail because I’ve grown to love that special corner of the world and want to experience its diversity. I live in the Bay Area, and constantly think about getting away to the great places we have in California. I’ve been to the Trinity Alps and the Redwood National and State Parks three times apiece, and I’ll never get them out of my bones. The Russian Wilderness, Marble Mountains and Yolla Bolly are next!
    I camped at Prairie Creek Redwood State Park this last weekend, and while it’s not that close to the BFT, it gave me the opportunity to get to the Siskiyou Wilderness. I day hiked to Devils Punchbowl and back, but my thoughts frequently drifted to our large hairy friend. And the dead Port Orford Cedar. What a tragedy.
    I’ve also become quite interested in conifers because I like to identify the trees I see on hikes. The Bigfoot Trail is obviously the best way to see the widest variety of vegetation, much less trees, in northwest California. Conifer Country and Conifers of the Pacific Slope, particularly the latter, have greatly helped improve my identification skills.
    Anyways, thanks for the blog, and know that the northwest corner of California is always in my heart and never far from my thoughts.

    The board has spoken! Congratulations for Brian G. Fagundes for being chosen as our winner. Brian’s comment is on our facebook page, but he said: “I may be a son of the Sierra but the Klamath Mountains taught me the secrets of life. Since childhood these Northern California mountains have been pure magic. The Bigfoot Trail encompasses all that is wonderful on this planet. Beauty, wildness, mystery, bounty, community.”

    Tanya Chapple randomly wins a copy as well. Thanks to everyone for playing.
