Trail Information


In the hills of the Superstitions in Southern California is a unique route that isn't seen often. This trail might add to the lure of the area in an odd and supernatural way. This unique path will zig-zag around the eastern part of the hills to many of the crosses that are representing the fatalities that have happened in the area. Each cross has a different story of who the person is and what happened. Since these are real, please be respectful and help preserve the area. Take the time to visit them, read the story, take in the views, and move to the next one.

This was very interesting as you normally don't see things like this. Well worth it.
