4. Bloody Lane Trail, Maryland
The name alone should tip you off. In the Civil War, more than 23,000 soldiers were killed, wounded or missing at the Battle of Antietam. Here are details on the 1.5 mile route. Don’t go alone—Travel Channel says visitors report “seeing ghostly soldiers both day and night, and phenomena include witnessing balls of blue light, hearing drumming, gunfire and battlefield songs, and smelling gunpowder.”
5. Chilnualna Falls Trail
This one is located in Yosemite National Park, and the 8.4 mile trail passes Grouse Lake. As the legend goes, a young boy from a local Native American tribe drowned in these waters, and you can still hear his cries. If you try to help him…you’ll be pulled under, too. Just sayin’.
Oh… and one more thing about the Chilnualna Falls Trail. Stories say there’s an evil spirit named Pohono—and if you get too close to the edge of the highest waterfall (which you shouldn’t be anywhere near anyway, evil spirit or not) the spirit will push you over the side.
