Harley said the second set of tracks were about 10 inches long. As he followed the tracks he came to a wooden bridge and lost the tracks there.

ROOKS PARK INVESTIGATION REPORT
Follow-up investigation report:
I followed up on this sighting 14 days after it occurred. The snow along the trail had melted off. I crossed the wooden bridge and discovered that this side still had snow and ice on the ground. While walking the area I did discover tracks along the dirt road heading towards the fields. The tracks were frozen showing the out line of toes, these measured 10 inches with a two foot stride which matched Harley's report. I also found a track which was frozen into the mud along wooden stairs. I casted it but the heat from the casting material somewhat melted the frozen mud. The cast does show 2 toe marks. I also discovered what might be a possible sasquatch nest along the paved trail.
