For more than forty years, a ten-by-ten-foot wooden box has been sitting deep in the heart of the Siskiyou National Forest, awaiting Sasquatch. Built in 1974 by members of the North American Wildlife Research Team, a government organization that no longer exists, the structure is known as the Bigfoot Trap. For six years, the structure was fully operational, and the team put small animals in the structure as bait. Perhaps Sasquatch is a vegetarian, as the baited box proved unsuccessful. The world’s only Bigfoot trap, however, did attract a few bears and has since become a popular tourist destination—a relic of a faded legend. The U.S. Forest Service currently maintains the trap as a novelty. You’ll stumble on the trap if you head out on the Collings Mountain hiking trail.
