The Legend Of The Third Bridge In Colorado Will Make Your Hair Stand On End
Bridges and other outdoor structures are typically seen as both beautiful and picturesque, but some have proven to be downright morbid and horrifying. While most bridges in Colorado are innocent, there is one that is home to several terrifying legends that will make your hair stand on end:
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
Located near the small Eastern Plains town of Bennett, Third Bridge is a small overpass that runs over the dried-up Kiowa Creek and can be found along rural County Line Road.
Covered in graffiti and strange messages, the Third Bridge may seem like your ordinary, run-of-the-mill platform, but is anything but, thanks to the creepy legends surrounding it.
According to local folklore, the Third Bridge (or "Ghost Bridge") is haunted by the spirits of Native Americans who lost their lives during a massacre that occurred around the same time as Sand Creek (pictured), who can still be seen and heard around the area.
If and when you visit the bridge at night, listen for the sound of distant drums and keep your eyes peeled for the sight of a ghost rider who still rides his horse around the area.
As if all of this wasn't creepy enough, the Third Bridge is also said to be plagued by the ghosts of another tragedy, via 2 teenagers who lost their lives after their cars crashed near the bridge.
The teenagers who were killed were traveling in 2 full cars, and a 3rd passenger is said to be completely paralyzed from the accident.
The Third Bridge can be found along County Line Road, approximately 14 miles east of Aurora.
