The Old Trail

Posted on August 29, 2011

Before you hear this story I just wanted to put out that I had never had a paranormal experience before this and ever since had been very vulnerable to anything that happens.

I was in 6th grade with my friend Kevin going up sugarloaf (a mountain not far from where we lived) using a new trail that we found hidden behind some trees. This is not where the story gets twisted. Now, this trail is kinda dangerous with cliffs over like 33% of the trail leading to an almost instant death. We had just climbed to the top of it and was thanking god I didn’t die from falling.

After we had our fun on the summit we had to go down. Kevin suggested we take the trail down but I refused, I didn’t want to risk dying but eventually he convinced me to go down. Nothing happened.

The next day I got some kind of sick pleasure and thought that I was invincible to that trail so I then brought my dog up that trail. I was nervous she might dragged my off a cliff but she didn’t. Instead of going down that trail we took the other trail that is most common. I wanted to make it as long of a walk as I could so looking at the map, I thought I was making a larger circle but then accidently wound up on the bridle trail (a long system of trails leading up the mountain next to sugarloaf called north sugarloaf).

After about 30 ft I knew I was on the wrong trail. I had never seen anyone go on this trail or ever even had heard of it. There wasn’t an observatory tower or even a cleared summit on North Sugarloaf is it isn’t as popular as sugarloaf. Then, weird stuff started happening.

I got the uneasy feeling that I was being watched and told to get out. I ignored it as I had the company of my dog with me. 50 more ft in there was another split, I took the right one and went further, further away from civilization. I wasn’t scared as this was only like 5sq. miles of reservation so nothing could go wrong right? Boy was a I wrong. 10 minutes in and after going through like 100 more splits each taking the right one I realized that with each passing step, I got more and more chills down my back and plus it was getting darker and darker as I progressed further.

The feeling of “get out, get out, get out” flew through my head it felt as though it had its own beat getting faster and faster until. I stopped at the same time my dog stopped. She lifted her ears and faced in a direction as if alerting me to something. I ignored it and thought nothing of it. The thought then came to me about bears and I started walking back when in the faintest of all whispers I heard the chilling words of “geeettt ooouuuttt” as if it was right in front of my face. I sprinted out of there literally having my dog drag me and about every 5 seconds “geeettt oooutttt” buzzed in my ears again. There was no way to fight it.

I then went down a hill and saw an electric fence and ran right into it pulling it off of its poles. Luckily it wasn’t on and I then saw the blood dripping from my face, legs, and arms. It then came to me that I just sprinted past many thorn bushes. I then walked home, horrified. It scared my as I was only 12 and this was my first encounter ever. I don’t know what to think about it. I thought about church but my entire family is atheists and I don’t want them insulting me.

I later did some research and found that this almost exactly matches up to “red eyed demons” I don’t know what to think. I want my friend to climb up it but now he is too scared. Thank you for your time

    As you get older you will learn to heed those thoughts telling you when something is “not quite right”. You were very smart to have a dog with you as animals have a keen sense of otherworldly beings… I am so very glad that you and your dog got out of there alive… thanks for sharing…

    Thanks for sharing! You’re lucky you didn’t get hurt. Maybe the voice was trying to scare you to get out in case something bad might happen if you kept going? Just an idea. I know exactly where Mt. Sugarloaf and North Sugarloaf are. Hiked Mt. Sugarloaf a few times but never went up North Sugarloaf. I’ll keep this story in mind next time I’m up there.

    If having your family make fun of you for going to church is what is keeping you from going, well let’s just say that it shouldn’t. If you believe in demons, then surely you must believe in God? The last thing that would ever keep me from church would be a bunch of atheists. Please don’t let that influence your decision…..

    I think its bettter to never go up there again and also never let some one go up there. it still could be nothing, just your imagination but if its not and you come back your in deep trouble for sure.
