Today Howard and I went out squatching together. I received an email from a woman who had seen all my recent postings from my hikes in Wrentham and Cumberland, as I followed the Warner trail, and she thought I’d be interested in her strange encounter.
For those that hadn’t seen those postings, here’s some info about The Warner Trail. The trail is a 30 mile long New England hiking trail that extends from Diamond Hill in northeast Rhode Island through to Norfolk County, Massachusetts. At one time you could could follow it all the way to the Blue Hills. But of course the land was broken up so developments could be built. While I was exploring I focused most of my time on the wrentham and Plainville area of the trail, but I did do one day in Cumberland Rhode Island.
Over the years I’ve been in many sections of this trail, On one hike In the Moose Hill section in Norfolk Massachusetts I was able to catch a few knocks on my video footage. I also felt a bit like I was being watched. I have also found large structures, etc. if bigfoot was wandering this area I wouldn’t be surprised, it certainly offers everything he would need to sustain him.
So Howard and I hit the trail where, Elaine, had her strange experience. She said she lives off of Fisher Street near Diamond Hill Park in R. I where part of the Warner Trail runs. The trail says private property but apparently you are allowed on it. This part of the trail leads to the Cumberland Reservoir. She said while walking from her house down the trail she heard a sound out there she had never heard before. A sound between a growl and a long babble.
She only heard it that one instance and she didn’t see anything around her. She said she was familiar with Rhode Island wildlife and didn’t think it was one of the usual critters found out there.
Now let me say this part of the trail is a nightmare. Slanted, rocky, narrow and very dense forests, even if something was out there you couldn’t see it, and of course the rocks tore my ankle up again.
We didn’t hear or see anything except for some old grills poking out. I did some research and apparently the YMCA had a campground out there some years ago.
It was a rough walk for most of it, and I didn’t see anything that stood out as any evidence but I did get to walk another section of the trail so I feel like I accomplished something today!
I don’t know if she heard a bigfoot, fox or some crazy person out there, but it would make for an easy migration trail for one to travel on. You have to wonder if he uses these types of trails to get around, I mean why not it’s a nice green corridor to travel on, running right along a river, if I was bigfoot I’d be all over it…
If you have had an odd encounter or bigfoot/paranormal sighting on any part of the Warner trail I’d love to hear from you!
Hope you had a great day today…
