8. Transept Trail, Arizona
This three-mile trek along the Grand Canyon North Rim is known for its striking beauty. Oh, and, as the story goes, the Wailing Woman. Wearing a white dress with blue flowers, she’s often spotted at night crying for her husband and son, who died in a hiking accident.
9. Ghost House Trail, Tennessee
This trail in Big Ridge State Park is known for a witch-hanging and a Native American-scalping. The hanging isn’t confirmed but a plaque on the nearby Indian Rock Trail does mention the, um, other thing. What is noteworthy here is that the trail was named for the house of the Hutchinson family. Their daughter Mary died of tuberculosis in the 1800s. Neighbors reported hearing cries and spotting ghosts long after the family left, and people still report the sounds of a phantom dog running up and down the trail, panting.
