Into the Woods

What is it about the wilderness of the untamed woods that still frightens us today?

Though generation upon generation of our ancestors have plowed through them, torn them down, and domesticated them, the woods—often dense, claustrophobic, and quiet—possess an isolating emptiness that soon have us imagining that someone or something is watching us.

Do you like the woods and the countryside, camping, and hiking? Or will you refuse to step foot outside of civilization?

Given their eeriness, stillness, and the fact that they often cut off our cell phone signals, the woods are the perfect place for telling or setting horror stories, and this has been the case for generations.

Campers, hikers, and park rangers were asked to share the freakiest things that they had experienced in the woods, and these stories will keep you from camping for a while!
