By: Good2GoPublished: May 4, 2016
Are you a scaredy-cat? If so, we’re going to do you a solid and tell you to avoid these roads at all costs. Each has had numerous reports of paranormal activity and bizarre happenings. If you’re a thrill-seeker, though, maybe this post will be inspiration for your next road trip.
Kelly Road in Ohioville, Pennsylvania
Reports say that when animals enter this haunted stretch of road they suddenly become possessed. They turn from peaceful and quiet to violent (think Cujo). Tales of people being chased down by said animals have been circulating for years. The road is surrounded by a dark, thick and creepy forest where white apparitions and noises that can’t be explained have been documented.
Highway 666 in Utah
Now known as Highway 191, the route (the sixth branch of the famous Route 66) is notorious for accidents, apparitions, and just plain bad luck. If you aren’t careful, hell hounds will shred your tires. A young girl walking down the road will vanish if you try to help her. If you are alone, a ghost may just take up residence in your back seat.
Dead Man’s Curve in Clermont County, Ohio
It’s sandwiched between two regular freeways, but this turn is so sinisterly sharp that it’s taken many lives. In the 60s, teens on an innocent drive in a Chevy Impala got into a fatal wreck— witnesses say they’ve seen floating visions of the car along with the one that hit it. There have also been reports of a faceless hitchhiker and ghosts of antique carriages that fell off the road a century ago.
The Devil’s Promenade near Hornet, Missouri
Every evening, something very strange happens along this otherwise quaint strip of road between Missouri and Kansas. The “Spooklight,” as it’s called, is an orb of light that peeks through the trees long after the sun has completely set. It’s usually green but has been known to shift in color and size, and nobody knows where it comes from. There are reports of Spooklight sightings in the early 19th century, and legend says the orb is the spirit of two Native American lovers who are looking for each other.
Clinton Road in West Milford, New Jersey
There are real reports of phantom headlights that appear from nowhere, follow drivers at alarmingly close distances, and then suddenly disappear. An abandoned old circus zoo has also been rumored to have led to creepy interbred creatures, one of which resembles a possessed albino deer. At Old Boy Bridge, throw a coin over the edge and the ghost of a drowned kid will supposedly throw it back at you. No thanks.
Shades of Death Road in Warren County, New Jersey
Yes, the road sign actually says “Shades of Death,” and that should be enough of a deterrent right there. Most wouldn’t want to drive down this road during the day. And night? Forget about it! On top of reports of extreme fog and unexplained bright skies, legend has it that a strange white light burns off the road at a place called Lenape Lane. If it turns red while you’re staring at it, rumor has it you’ll die. Nope, nope, nope.
