One Of The Most Haunted Bridges In New Jersey, Clinton Road Bridge Has Been Around For Decades
We’ve all heard of haunted homes, haunted hospitals, haunted hotels, heck, even haunted bars. Clearly, many people believe spirits will linger in a certain place. But could a whole 10-mile stretch of road be cursed?
Well, that’s what people believe about Clinton Road by West Milford, New Jersey. If you believe the legends, this stretch of road, quite desolate and primarily in the forest, has a seriously dark energy. We’re talking everything from rumored druids practicing rituals in the surrounding woods, serial killers allegedly burying bodies, ghost trucks driving along, bizarre humanoid animals crossing the road at night, and, most famously, a little boy haunting the waters underneath a bridge.
And while these are all just rumors, it is true a dead body was found on the road in the 1980s. Yikes.
So, if you’re looking for a haunted bridge in New Jersey, there’s only one spot you should go… well, sort of. It’s unclear which of the two bridges on Clinton Road are the ghost boy’s hangout, so you’ll just have to visit both.
