Upper Glen Trail in Pennsylvania
What are some creepy hikes in Pennsylvania?
The Upper Glen Trail is definitely one of the more creepy hikes in Pennsylvania, but creepy adventures abound in the Keystone State. The Pennsylvania Turnpike is one of them. Despite its mileage, this 8.2-mile trek is rated as easy, so it's accessible to ghost hunters of all skill levels and abilities. Please note, however, that you might have to deal with some rugged terrain and potholes along the way. So what makes this hike so creepy? Well, it's actually one of the most haunted places in Pennsylvania! Two of the undeniable highlights of the trail are the stroll through the abandoned tunnels - Sideling Hill Tunnel and Ray's Hill Tunnel. Bring a flashlight along for your trek through the tunnels -- it's quite dark in there! It's cool, too, hikers and bikers praise the tunnels for their eerie aura and because they offer a cool reprieve from the hot sun during the summer. But is it cool simply because it's underground? Or is it cool because of the unsettled spirits rumored to haunt this trail? You'll just have to tackle this hike and find out for yourself!
Is the Witch's Hat Pavilion the only haunted place in Pennsylvania?
With such a long and legendary history, there are all kinds of unsettled spirits haunting Pennsylvania. For one, there's this abandoned asylum, which isn't just rumored to be one of the most haunted places in Pennsylvania... but also on Earth! When Pennhurst Asylum opened in 1908, the asylum that cared for mentally and physically disabled Pennsylvanians seemingly thrived. Both paid employees and volunteers worked hard to provide a safe home for residents. But time can be a cruel, cruel thing, and with the combination of overcrowded conditions, patient abuse, and food scarcity, the asylum began its descent to decay. Pennhurst Asylum closed for good in 1987, and since then, it's become a favorite destination for professional and aspiring paranormal investigators, who join overnight paranormal investigations of Pennhurst.
