The Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge is full of picturesque scenery, waterfalls, rugged terrain and diverse wildlife.
But there’s one place deep in the woods that most visitors don’t know exists – The Parallel Forest. It's located on the eastern side of the Wichita Mountains along Oklahoma State Route 115.
It was built by the federal government as an experiment to deal with the effects of the Dust Bowl. Over 20,000 red cedars were planted exactly 6 feet apart in every direction on over 16 acres.
The sunlight is blocked by the canopy of the trees, so the eerie feeling is even more exaggerated by the gloomy atmosphere.
Once you enter the forest, no matter which direction you look, you'll see a tree exactly 6 feet from the next. The government wanted the trees to grow up instead of out, so this design was chosen.
They have survived for more than a century and it's one of the creepiest places to visit.
Visitors to this haunted forest have reported seeing ghosts with no heads, weird noises, orbs in photographs, feelings of being touched and many more paranormal experiences.
Do you think this forest is haunted? Whether it is or isn’t, it’s still a cool place to visit. Check it out the next time you’re visiting the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge.
