Haunted Trails

Over three hundred years ago witches lived at the end of this trail, practicing their spells, and acts of magic! Dr. Greeten Sabit, witchdoctor of Crown Village, practiced the dark arts upon those who came seeking help for their ailments. Once the town uncovered the truth about the evil doctor, a mob was formed for retribution for those who fell prey to his experiments and rituals; that went terribly wrong. Although it is said that the doctor died, what happened on the night the mob met Dr. Sabit is uncertain. The evil acts Dr. Sabit inflicted upon his patients left a scar on Gallows Bend, leaving restless spirits roaming the trails....

This is a VERY SCARY event and not recommended for children under 8 years of age. $12 per entrance, purchase tickets in Parks and Recreation office on the night of the event.
