Stay Away From Wisconsin's Most Haunted Road After Dark Or You May Be Sorry
Who doesn’t love a good ghost story? We’ve got so many tales here in Wisconsin that it’s hard not to get wrapped up in some of the stories. Whether you believe in ghosts or not, there are enough stories to give you goosebumps and maybe make you a little wary. Just in case, I’m going to go ahead and avoid this area at night.
The town of Baraboo, northwest of Madison near the Wisconsin Dells, is most known for Devil's Lake State Park and its connection to the Ringling Brothers.
It's a quaint and charming little town that pulls in tourists with all the circus-related activities or as a place to refuel after a long day hiking.
But all might not be as peaceful as it seems in Baraboo.
In this idyllic slice of gorgeous Wisconsin there are plenty of interesting and otherworldly tales, from werewolves to mysterious unknown animals in the woods and more than one report of paranormal activity.
There's a stretch of Highway 12 through Baraboo on which many, many people have reported an unexplained phenomenon.
Drivers report seeing a man walking along the side of the highway. He appears to be wearing an old green Army jacket and jeans.
Drivers notice him because it seems so unsafe for a person walking at night. They keep driving and a mile or two down the road, they see the same figure, dressed exactly the same, seemingly having transported himself ahead faster than their car.
No one reports ever having stopped to try to help the so-called Phantom Hitchhiker, so no one knows what an encounter with the ghost might look like.
So when you're traveling down this stretch of highway, don't be surprised to see the ghost - again and again. Make sure you keep your eyes on the road.
Do you think this road could really be haunted? Have you had a supernatural experience there yourself? Tell us about it in the comments!
