Beware of the Haunted Trail of Balboa Park

haunted-trailWe’ve all been to the house of horrors, but the Haunted Trail of Balboa Park doesn’t even compare. It you like really scary things, creepy stuff and the fear of the unknown, you should check out what’s happening at 6th Avenue and Juniper Street  in San Diego from the 30th of September through the 31st of October.

Just imagine the scary stuff you might encounter in the trail that’s a mile long with old, gnarled oaks and creepy, dark pines. If you keep your wits about you, you just might make it through the gauntlet of spooky characters like Jason or Freddy K. who may be wielding chainsaws.

Beware, the park isn’t for those afraid of the dark or kids under 10. This scary park event is open every evening by 7 pm and a few nights as early as 6:30 pm.
