    5 Frightening Forests You Should Never Visit

    Large trees, fresh air and solitude – forests are fantastic for a quick getaway from the stress of city living. But there are certain forests that you should be weary of And The five woodlands on this list have gained a reputation for being sinister, dark and even deadly. These are 5 Frightening Forests You Should Never Visit

    5. Devils Tramping Ground

    Over 120 years before America gained its independence, locals have whispered that inside the pine woods of Chatham County in N. Carolina lies a 15-foot wide circle where no life has ever grown. They call it the Devil’s Tramping Ground.

    Year after year, no plant life grows within the circle. Despite being surrounded by forests and trees, no plant life ever grows within this circle. No trees, no flowers,no anything and Locals say even when plants are transplanted within, they just wilt and die.

    4. Man Finds Missing Person’s Shrine

    James Rankin was on a leisurely hike in October of 2016 exploring Huntington’s Berkeley Jackson County Park in New York when he came across a terrifying site. He was walking along when something posted on the trees caught his attention. He took a closer look and to his surprise, they were pieces of printed paper placed inside a plastic file sleeve. Theyhad been posted on individual trees around a portion of the forest. Rankin looked closely at each one and realized they were missing posters.

    3. Pine Barrens

    Pine Barrens, New Jersey is dubbed as one of the most haunted forests in North America. Why? There’s a couple of reasons. First, it’s home to the terrifying Jersey Devil. Second, there are supposedly multiple ghosts seen in the area. Third, it’s a place where real life abandoned ghost towns are found.

    For centuries, countless urban legends have surrounded this mysterious forest. Over time, the stories change but the central characters remain.

    2. The Black Forest

    Sitting alongside the Rhine River, you’ll find a deep, dark forest with such a thick canopy of tall trees hardly any sunlight penetrates through. This area in Germany is known appropriatly as the Black Forest.

    For many, the Black Forest has become synonymous with evil forests you would find mentioned in haunting fairytales. In fact, we have the Brothers Grimm to thank for that imagery since many of their stories set in deep, dark forests take inspiration from this location.

    1. Interstate 85

    For many, the trees lining one of America’s busiest interstates is just like anywhere else. But what they don’t know is that Interstate 85 in Atlanta, Georgia is a hidden dumping ground for bodies. The entire 200–mile stretch of the Interstate starting at the Georgia corridor down to the tip of South Carolina has become a dumping place of murdered and missing people.

    Wait, you're telling me NEITHER Aokigahara (Japan's Suicide Forest) nor Hoia Bacu (in Romania) made this list, but "Devil's Tramping Ground" and the Black Forest did? Lame.

            Need a team and we would travel all over researching these paranormal areas. Have a plane like the show "Criminal Minds" just for us.
            And a sponsor to back us.

              It pisses me off that the black woman’s killer wasn’t even charged or questioned when it was obviously him. 😡

                If it is the devil stomping around, if you believe such nonsense, then the Prince of Darkness would kill or maim anyone in the circle, not sing them to sleep and waft them gently to another place.

                  That's crazy I lived right outside the Pine Barrens and did the whole 'burnt road turn off your lights' thing with a few friends. We didn't see anything although it was very spooky and eerily silent despite a highway close by.

                                            I have a question. What if a corporate giant acquires the site for development and with large fundings a multiple story building is erected at the devils tramping ground. What would happen then? Would the forces that be prevent this from even occurring? Or after the developments completion will it mysteriously disappear or be moved?

                                                    We were house hunting made a wrong turn, the forest got dark and ominous we jokingly said "this place is so creepy, it's like something you'd see in a horror film. Just then a loud thump. SOMETHING had thrown or dropped a huge rock onto the top of the van, we pulled over to see what it was and it was stuck under the luggage rack! I did research on the area, it is a known haunted area, supposedly by the Native Americans who were slaughtered there in the 1600's

I have lived in Huntington, Long Island for my entire life and I have heard the story of the missing persons flyers in the trees before. But never did I know that those hanging flyers are less than 2 miles away from me every single day. I had no idea I'm fucking freaked out right now. Long Island is haunted by many many things, including live monsters.

Then low and behold in the 60s there was a chicken farm on the edge of the Barrens, dug up by the FBI and 80 bodies found supposedly Mafia members.

Ghosts are not a problem, the devil does not have time to spend one a single person. I want to go check out those ghost towns. They have been using wood from the Black Forest trees for centuries for making all sorts of items. Although I do have concerning thoughts about the highway used to dump dead bodies. Put up big lights!!! Can't sneak if there are no more shadows. I do not know, just did not think any of them were scary.
