Search for ‘Bigfoot’ to take place Saturday

 Area residents who are looking to explore the great outdoors  are invited to participate in a "Search for Bigfoot Hike" on the Lower Rouge Trail from 4-6 p.m. Saturday, Nov.13. 

There have been more than 200 supposed Bigfoot sightings in Michigan, and this free hike will be guided by a naturalist and noted "Bigfoot Expert" from the Huron-Clinton Metroparks. This will be a search for the 'World Hide-N-Seek Champion,' also known as Sasquatch.

"With fall in full swing, it's a great time to take a hike and take in the outdoor scenery," said Jennifer Girard, recreation specialist.  "We're excited to offer this free, fun opportunity for participants to come and learn about Bigfoot and how these rumored creatures are able to remain so elusive by practicing 'Leave No Trace' outdoor tactics."

This family-friendly evening hike will include a walk-through of a short section of the Lower Rouge Trail, located off Morton Taylor Road, north of Michigan Avenue, as participants search for the elusive 'Big Guy' in Canton's own backyard. 

Advance registration is required at:  Participants are asked to bring their flashlights, bug spray, and sense of adventure to this tongue-in-cheek search, where one never knows who might show up.
