Paranormal, haunted, and creepy roads

26 posts in this topic

Scattered throughout the world are all sorts of haunted and cursed areas. Many of the destinations among these are roads, lanes and streets. What could be more terrifying than being

stalked by a knife-weilding maniac? Or perhaps being kidnapped by a giant, hairy bigfoot? Or how about being pursued by a mysterious phantom truck? For hundreds of years,

these desolate roads deep within the wilderness have been paranormal hot spots. Listed below are some of the many examples:

Clinton Road

Deep within the wilds of New Jersey is the lonely strech of pavement known as Clinton Road. People are advised not to go down here at night.

Satanists, Witches, and the KKK practice their rituals here, and chase off anyone who disturbs them. Terrorists are also present, making

attempts to dump cyanide in the local reservoir. The vengeful ghost of a small boy haunts a small bridge in the area. Legend has it that if you

toss a penny in the water below at midnight, the penny will soon be thrown back at you. At the nearby Cross Castle, Satanists practice

their dark rituals. The dark woods are inhabited by strange creatures, ranging from hellhounds to monkeys. Many of them are said to be

survivors of the Jungle Habitat, a local attraction closed for years.

Indian Cabin Road

The haunted woods of New Jersey hold this dark place. The narrow paths are only wide enough for one car. The dark woods that surround this

area only add to the feeling of dread people get when passing through here. A portion of this desolate road is said to be the stalking grounds of

the Kruker, a killer rapist/child molester. He often lures his victims using candy and soda. As the curious child comes closer, the

Kruker jumps from his hiding places and viciously attacks the poor kid. Farther down the road is a meeting ground for a nefarious satanic cult.

They are said to inhabit an old, abondoned church. In front of the church is an abondoned statue of the Virgin Mary, with blood dripping

from her eyes! Anyone who approaches this church will be pursued by a rusty pickup truck.

Boy Scout Lane

Located within Linwood township, Wisconsin, is the lonley Boy Scout Lane. This desolate stretch of pavement is nothing but a sad

reminder of a troop of Boy Scouts who perished in the nearby woods. As the legend goes, a troop of Boy Scouts lead an expedition

into these woods. As they all slept, they were murdered by their wicked Scout Master. The next morning, the Scout Master

realised the horrible crime he has commited. Soon after, he hangs himself from an oak tree overhanging the road. But the

legend does not end here. The ghosts of the Boy Scouts still haunt the woods they died in. At night, they can still be heard

hiking through the thick undergrowth, and their lanterns can still be seen floating through the wilderness.

Shades of Death Road

Shades of Death Road makes it's home in central Warren County, New jersey. It is infamous for the many ghosts that inhabit

the dark road. One of the most popular locations here is Ghost Lake. It is called Ghost Lake for a reason. Several people have

reported seeing aparitions around the lake. Another legend is Lenape Lane. The lane ends at an abondoned farm house, and is

surrounded by extremely thick fogs and is haunted by spirits. It is said that an orb comes out of the house and chases passing

cars. If it turns red in the process, all those who see it will die. Other legends include a Native American spirit guide who takes

form of a deer and appears at various points of the road.

Whipporwill Road

Whipporwill Road is home to many unusual happenings. The road is used for meeting grounds by Witches and the KKK.

The road is especialy dangerous at night. KKK often patrol the area and viciously beat anyone caught wandering around.

In the 1800's fifteen Witches were accused of back magic and burned to death. After their execution, the local residents

buried them in the road. over a century later, the road was paved over and remade. Strangely, fifteen humps appeared

in the road where they were buried. Other encounters include human-shaped trees and a dancing Jesus statue.

This is way I don't like going to these places. :o

I LIVED ON WHIPPORWILL! And I swear that is the most terrifying place ever. We lived in the green gardener's house that is now torn down. My older sister insisted that there was a man that would visit from behind the big tree by the road, and I used to play in the bittersweet with a boy that my mother insists wasn't real. From the doors refusing to lock even after the whole doorknobs were changed to the strangely friendly fox with human-looking eyes that would come around, to the field filled with daisies and the tulip tree that my neighbor Mrs. Du Bois said a woman haunted,I can't shake the feelings or memories from that place.

I've never been to Clinton Rd, but I'm sure it's the same thing as Whippoorwill, you grow up with the stories, so anything even strange is attributed to the stories. c: Makes it fun though.

Good to see that "terrorists" have started to make the list along with witches, satanists, KKK, etc.

I would think that these same exact stories being told in almost every community around the country would tell you something.

Sometimes a dark road is just a dark road.

Here's something from my city :D

Its been described as the Killer Road in recent years. Originally part of the aborted M67 Trans Pennine Motorway, it was downgraded to a dual carriageway and then to its present format of a single carriageway with crawler lanes.

Completed in 1989 it lies on the North side of the valley. Bad driving and speeding caused many deaths until a slight redesign with better signage coupled with specs cameras (these measure your average speed over a set distance - no point braking just for them!) stopped the fatalities.

Whilst still not perfect its a vast improvement on the old A616 which went through the centre of Stocksbridge, Deepcar and continued down through Wharncliffe Side and Oughtibridge. At least now the town doesn't suffer so much from heavy goods vehicles.

It also gained notoriety in its early days with a Michael Aspel special (followed by others on various satellite channels) on its alleged haunting's. In fact the story started during the building of the road.

A group of security guards saw a group of children late one night playing just below Pearoyd Bridge. They were curious as the children appeared to be wearing antiquated clothing. When they reached the spot where they had spotted the children they found nothing. The mud on the ground bore no footmarks. The following morning they found that workmen staying in caravans often heard children singing during the night.

The following night they observed a figure on the bridge that looked like a monk. When they drove towards him he vanished. This totally spooked the two blokes who contacted Deepcar Police station. The Police (as might be expected) didn't believe them and joked that they needed a priest rather than a copper. They took him at his word and contacted the local vicar, who himself contacted the Police!

Later two policemen went to investigate. They parked their car so they could see the bridge. They thought they saw something move but on investigating found a tarpaulin blowing. Suddenly it appeared to go cold. Looking round they both saw a body - torso only in the window. Then it vanished. They tried to start the car but at first it didn't start. They drove over towards the construcution area and parked up and informed the nick of their position. At this point a loud crash was felt in the car. No-one was around. As you may guess the two bobbies high tailed it back to Deepcar as fast as possible.

Legend has it that it is the ghost of a disillusioned monk that left Hunshelf Priory and went to work at Underbank Hall. Children are said to have fallen down the numerous pit shafts that litter the North side of the valley.

There have been numerous sightings of children since and the monk even appears inside the cars of people to this day. Whether its true, you can make up your own mind but if you drive late at night on the bypass on your own take care. Its a spooky place!

I want to start off by saying that I really enjoy reading the posts in this forum. I have been looking around for about a week and decided to make my first post.

There is a supposedly haunted road in my town known as Vinegar Hill. The story is that many years ago there were two brothers who made cider to sell to a local inn that was used by the cattlemen and railroad workers in Fairmont. One night while hauling some barrels of cider up the hill it started storming. A bolt of lighting struck close to the men spooking the mules pulling their wagon, which caused them to stop suddenly, throwing the brothers off along with a barrel of cider. The heavy barrel trapped one of the men. The brothers were drunk from drinking cider all day and not thinking clearly. The man tried to save his brother by pushing the barrel, since it was too heavy to pick up, causing it to roll over top of him crushing him to death. Supposedly if you drive on the road on a stormy night the ghost of the flattened brother can be seen staggering up the hill.

I have driven on this road many times and it is a scary place, mostly because it is dangerous to drive on. It's very narrow with only enough room for one car at a time. On one side of the road is a steep drop off that leads down into a ravine. A boy I went to school with unfortunately lost his life when he lost control of his ATV and went off the cliff into the ravine.

I've never seen a flattened ghost, but you definitely get an uneasy feeling when traveling the road at night.

Been to Shades Of Death Rd. My brother swears by weird experiences he's had there with friends. Nearby is Vorhees State Park, which is where Friday the 13th's Jason gets his last name. Legend is when the settlers arrived they massacred the Lenape Indians and threw the bodies into the lake, thusly poisoning the water and causing a plaque. A lot of people have recorded strange happenings. I seem to recall an episode of The Twilight Zone having been filmed there.

Seriously, Satanists, witches, Klansmen and terrorists? This is just silly.

I wish I could remember where in my vicinity, but there is supposed to be a road here where cars mysteriously move uphill. Goes back to a legend of a school bus full of children being hit by a train as it stalled on the rail road tracks. Gravity Hill is what it's called if I remember correctly. My sister once went out there with some friends, but they said nothing happened.

There was one of those near where I grew up as well. Only I think it was a train track that your car got pushed over. Same legend, though, with the school bus of children. There seems to be a school bus of children pushing cars all over America. :P

There is another one close to where I live now that is a little different. Supposedly if you park your car on this certain road, you'll start to feel your car shake and hear something scratching down the side of your car (and your windshield) as well as beating on it. It's supposed to be like a demon dog or something. It's not something people recommend doing because your car gets beat up so badly.

While we're on the subject, I thought I'd post some roads that aren't in New Jersey and don't have anything to do with Satanists or the KKK. These are from the area where I grew up in NC. It's interesting to note that, while I was looking for these I found at least 10 (I say at least because I lost count at 8, there were so many) different stories pertaining to lights on different railroad tracks, at least three of which involved a conductor losing his head and searching for it with a lantern. One was about a drunk man that lost his head and looks for it with a lantern.

North Carolina- Leland- Mt. Misery Road- Along the Cape Fear River, used to lead to Fayetville. Slave ships would dock at the river and march slaves 90 miles to Fayetville, many died on the way. It is said if you go down the road at night, you can hear the sounds of chains and moans coming from the slaves.

North Carolina- Clyde- Hwy 209- There was supposedly a woman who was struck and killed on this road behind a truck stop. If you pass the area at night and look in your rearview mirror, you can see her sitting in your back seat. (that scares the crap outta me)

North Carolina- Davidson- Gravity hill- If you stop your car at the bottom of the hill it will roll up the hill. If you put flour on the back of your car, you can see (supposedly) handprints on the back after it stops.

North Carolina- Greensboro- Richfield Road- Story similar to above, including handprints.

North Carolina- Jamestown- US Hwy 70 Underpass- Lydia's bridge- Classic hitchhiker ghost that asks for a ride and disappears. The only thing that makes it different is that there is actually a death certificate for Lydia, confirming her death from injuries sustained from being struck by a car. My late uncle swore up and down he had been driving down this road one night and saw her standing on the side of the road in her trademark white gown trying to wave him down.

North Carolina- Lillington- Go down the road along Alcapulco Lake, past the lake to a stop sign. Turn right, go down a hill and up another, and stop. There will be a house to the right where a woman and her baby supposedly died. The ghost of the woman and her baby will appear by the window, leaving adult and baby handprints on the side of the car, as well as scratch marks.

North Carolina- Maiden- Old Hwy 321- The gray man (a pretty popular story) walks along the road. Sometimes appearing in rearview mirrors, sitting in the back seat. He has no face.

North Carolina- Middlesex- Moccasin Creek Bridge on NC 231- On the first Friday of every month, at 9 PM, a boy can be seen crawling out of the woods. The story behind it is that there was a fatal car crash, and before the boy died, he crawled out of the woods towards the road trying to get help.

North Carolina- Rural Hall- Payne Road- A man supposedly murdered his family near this road. Sometimes an old 1930's car will be seen driving down the road, but vanishes as soon as it leaves Payne Rd. It is also said if you go out of your way to spend too much time here, the man will haunt your dreams.

North Carolina- Sylva- Dillsboro Road- A woman and her husband were supposedly murdered here. If you stop and get out, you can hear screams and voices. This road is famous for the amount of accidents that happen on it, and its said its cursed because of the man and woman.

That's just a few. There were so many gravity hills, that I thought it'd be redundant to put them all up.

There is also a road in the area my dad lives (they are all privately owned). We were riding on his four wheeler one night and he took us by this abandoned house withe a beat up old car (like 1950's old) near it. The land and car belong to one of his neighbors, whose cousin shot herself in the car, and whose father committed suicide in the house shortly after. They keep the land and the car, but gave up trying to rent out the house, as no one will stay there because of the strange things that happen, including apparitions of the father. They left the car to the elements because, after the cousin shot herself, one of the family members were trying to get it cleaned up so they could sell it, and they looked up and saw the cousin (with her face blown half off) sitting in the seat next to them.

My dad drove us around the house and parked out back to tell us what happened. I sort of scoffed at it (I don't believe in ghosts, even if the stories behind them are reliable) but while my dad was telling the story (keep in mind, the doors of this house have since been boarded up, as have the windows. There are a few spots on the windows where you can see through to the blinds, though) I kept seeing the blinds behind one of the boards moving, like someone was peeking out. Then we heard banging on the door, hard enough so you could see the boards moving.

I still don't believe in ghosts, but that sure was a creepy experience. I imagine if that road were open up to the public, it'd become a pretty popular urban legend.

Those 'Gravity roads' where it looks like cars automatically roll up a hill are nothing more then an optical illusion, the roads seem to go up in reference to the surrounding area but they actually slope down.

Nothing paranormal about it :lol:

I'm sure most of us know that. But it's fun to look at the urban legends that spring up around them. ^_^

Since this thread has, ahem, come back to life, does anyone have any good places in Virginia to check out? Roads or bridges or the like? Unfortunately my little town has practically nothing in the way of legends and haunts, but I've been thinking about making a couple road trips this spring and summer.

Since this thread has, ahem, come back to life, does anyone have any good places in Virginia to check out? Roads or bridges or the like? Unfortunately my little town has practically nothing in the way of legends and haunts, but I've been thinking about making a couple road trips this spring and summer.

The first spot in Virginia which comes to mind is in Chesapeake. There's a road called Elbow Road. I've been there several times with friends. On this road an old woman supposedly was murdered. People say where her house used to sit, you can see lights turning on and off. **What I found there** in reference to this particular story. My friends and I would drive down to the end of the road and sit at this small boat ramp/dock. We would sit on the dock and look over the water, off to the left and see lights flashing occasionally. We did this in the middle of the night, since there were fewer cars and less traffic. My thoughts before I went there was that since the road was really curvy, people were just seeing the headlights of cars weaving around through the curves. However, we watched for cars, and the lights didn't always coincide with oncoming cars. It wasn't enough to convince me that there was a whole lot to it. The second story is about a particular curve in the road. Supposedly, if you go around this curve, and have someone sit on the hood of the car (or in the back of a pick-up truck), you will see tiny footprints coming toward you from the water's edge. Like those of a child. A little girl supposedly drowned there, hence the footprints. **What I found there**: In this particular curve, there was a strange fog that was only on the right side of my car (only when I drove toward the dock, never on the way back from it). The water is on the left side of the car when you are traveling in that direction, so I could understand if it fogged up the left side, but it never did. If you do visit this spot, be sure to keep your speed down. The curves on this road can be dangerous. I say this is a good location to check out if you're in the area and you want to have a little adventure. I'll sit down later and try to think of some really good spots for you to check out and post as I think of them.

Thanks for the VA info, I'maLoner. I'd love to check out those places but with the price of gas at the moment my roadtrip is going to have to be closer to home :( I'm in Southwestern VA and there's just nothing here. We have a few alleged haunted spots but nothing that's really worth checking out on a Saturday night. I've been thisclose to making up a legend just to see if it would catch on and acheive "urban" status! But I guess that wouldn't be very ethical, eh?

I'm originally from southwestern part of Virginia myself - Patrick County. In fact, I live not too far from the area now. I'll have to ask some friends nearabouts there to see what I can come up with. I do know of a few places just across the VA/NC line, if you're interested. And.. I understand what you mean. I often wonder about people who truly did create urban legends - and I wonder if they wear a smug smile as the 10,000th person repeats his or her own legend to him/her - reporting it as absolute "FACT" :D

Still Road : This road is on the border of Delaware and Maryland. It is a very eerie road. There is a story of the bridge on this road they call it Crybaby Bridge. Apparently if you turn your car off on the bridge you won't be able to start it and will hear a mother searching for her baby who was murdered by being dropped off the bridge. I've personally never experienced that part of it but the road does seem haunted / paranormal in a sense. The first time I was there we were chased off by a white truck. He followed us for a while too. The second and last time, no truck. (Sorry if my story seems jumbled, first post.) The only reason I don't believe the Crybaby Bridge story is because I've heard of the same story is in alot of places.
