RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 62421087 LA English T1 Haunted hikes : spine tingling tales and trails from North America's national parks A1 Lankford, Andrea., PB Santa Monica Press PP Santa Monica, CA YR 2006 SN 1595800093 9781595800091 AB "Combining the popularity of ghost stories with the traditional aspects of a park trail guide, these creepy hikes lead courageous climbers and armchair adventurers through some of the scariest, most mysterious places in North America. Thoroughly investigated, yet often tongue-in-cheek, these tales behind the trails include the chupacabra that roams the swamps inside the Big Thicket National Preserve, the execution-style shooting of two General Motors executives at Crater Lake, and the pair of disembodied legs that have been seen running around inside the Mammoth Cave Visitor Center. A fright factor rating is listed for each hike, along with information on trailhead access, maps, and hike difficulty levels. From the wheelchair accessible to multi-day treks into the wilderness, the included trails cover a wide range of hiking abilities and even feature a haunted Louisiana bayou best reached by canoe or kayak."--Publisher description.
