In the 1950's a school bus was driving kids home from a field trip.
It skidded into a wash and all the kids drowned.
If you go there, put your car in neutral around the turn, you get pushed up the hill.
It's supposedly by the kids who died in the bus crash
and they want to keep you from the same fate.
The Gates of Hell
In the middle of Empire Mine road,
there is a Stuckko wall with a bunch of spray paint on it.
If you like to take hikes, this is the place to go.
There is an old Insane Asylum at the very end of this road.
You will come to another gate then behind their lies this old decrepit Structure of a hospital.
Many people were killed brutally in this place,
and it is VERY haunted by not so nice spirits.
Things have been thrown at people,
they have been pushed and screams have been heard
from the people being tortured by themselves or another.
***Not sure about the asylum story,
but I've been told that the "Gates of Hell"
were actually gates to a planned, upscale, gated community in the 1950's.
It was supposedly scrubbed due to the bus crash
and the loss of the children's lives.
If anybody has any hard-fact info on this,
i.e...what the building at the end of the road really was intended for,
and why the community was scrubbed,
please email me and let me know.
Rail Road Mine
At the end of Empire mine road, there is an old
railroad track tunnel that is pretty spooky inside.
There are bats inside it and you can hear
voices at the end of the tunnel.
