I choose this hike because I heard it was haunted. I completed both loops. So here is my review. very tough to follow blazers, mostly in middle sections of loops. Had to climb over and crawl under fallen trees. You will need to hike through small streams, less than ankle deep. Entire trail took about 4.5 hours, including losing all trace of blazers. Make sure your phone is fully charged, you will need to access this App.

Back to the Haunted Trail, I found lack of Wildlife in certain sections. No signs of any, including birds, squirrels or deer, which I found strange. During the hike I would experience chills and goose bumps, at random areas. Once I left an offering of Bread, Whiskey and tabacco they seemed to of stopped. I stopped and checked out the Cairns, which was OK, nothing crazy in that area. it is when you are deep into the forest, you may hear distant drumming (think streched animal hide type drum) I did not experience the Chanting which some others have.

I wanted to only give it three stars, do to trail maintenance issues, but I felt it shoukd get four for historical reasons. Trail was hiked in October, so issue with bugs. The trail at some places does follow a large stream or river. it was a good hike. I parked in lot 1 and took Meadow trail into area. Orange to Blue to Yellow and Blue again blazers, if you find them on fallen trees or moss covered trees. The Yellow trail ny stream is very difficult to follow, follow stream until you see bridge. Lots of rocks and roots.
