Is Shades of Death Road the only haunted road in New Jersey?

Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on your appetite for the spooky), Shades of Death is not the only haunted road in New Jersey. 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? It can, and it is. This haunted place is also known as 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. Gulp.
