Missouri has many buildings rumored to be haunted, but there are few truly haunted hikes. In Wildwood, just west of St. Louis, is Zombie Road — or what is now called Rock Hollow Trail. It is easily one of the most haunted sites in Missouri. Lawler Ford Road was constructed in the late 1860s and was built so locals could access the Meramec River. The road fell out of use as modern highways were constructed and rumors of paranormal activity increased. Now, the road has been transformed into a Great Rivers Greenway that connects St. Louis with the county via trails that follow the rivers.
