If you’re looking for a creepy hike, you’ve come to the right place. This atmospheric stroll through history features not one, but two supposedly haunted houses from the nineteenth century, along with an architecturally fascinating cemetery. Remnants of a lost Swedish-American frontier settlement that once thrived in these quiet woods south of the dunes, today the Victorian structures are eerie reminders of a different, harder kind of living. This easy 2.1-mile lollipop visits all three historic sites and winds through a deep ravine covered with ancient oaks. It’s a perfect place to saturate yourself or your family with history, and an easy way to scare your skittish friends on an autumn evening near Halloween.
