It’s no secret that Northern California sits as the unofficial home of Bigfoot. So when Rob Lowe and his sons decided to search for the elusive creature on their new show, The Lowe Files, they headed into the NorCal wilderness hoping for a sighting.
It was Lowe’s dream to go on a search for Bigfoot, especially after he claimed to have seen one in the Ozark Mountains when he was younger. So he enlisted the help of legendary Bigfoot hunter Matt Moneymaker and headed into the Hoopa Wilderness looking for the beast. They also make a stop at the Bigfoot Museum in Willow Creek to dig further into the lore of Sasquatch in the area.

The wilderness of NorCal, more specifically the outdoors of Humboldt, Del Norte, Trinity and Siskiyou counties, is home to the most Bigfoot sightings in the world. The National Forest Service even named a remote stretch of California Route 96 as the “Bigfoot Scenic Highway.” There is also a 360-mile trail in NorCal’s vast upper wilderness named the “Bigfoot Trail,” which stretches through the Yolly-Bolly, Trinity Alps, Russian, Marble Mountain and Siskiyou Wildernesses.
