This was the first recorded encounter with the Bluff Creek "15-inch" track. Bob Titmus and Ed Patrick had looked at old 16-inch "Bigfoot" tracks on the Bluff Creek road then under construction, and were searching for more tracks, which they found on the banks of the creek, about 200 feet below. John Green and Gus Milliken saw the tracks a few days later. Titmus followed the tracks a couple of hundred yards up the creek before coming to a sandbar where he was able to cast four perfect impressions. Where the tracks went into the woods there were three trees twisted off about six feet high along the line of travel. Identical tracks were found on the same sand bar exactly a year later and on several other occasions. They have also turned up in other places in the vicinity, including Blue Creek Mountain and Onion Mountain, sometimes accompanied by a 13 inch track.
