Ghost Trail at Big Ridge State Park

Hiking at Big Ridge State Park is great exercise. But, some say, there's an added experience for those brave enough to walk the trail.

Hi friends, welcome to the Wild Side, I’m Steve Hall. As you regularly see on our show Tennessee is filled with a rich natural history that has been celebrated for generations. But what about the history that might be considered unnatural. It is expressed not by pictures and video but through folk lore and word of mouth. By families who have experienced strange occurrences and lived to tell their paranormal tale. Big Ridge State Park is one such place that has preserved ghostly stories from the community. So join us in Maynardville as we explore these fascinating accounts. Even in state parks where there are no ghost stories… a lot of history and culture have been preserved along with the land.
