Take A Drive Down the Scariest Road In East Texas
- Stagecoach Road in Marshall
- Eight miles of terror
- Narrow dirt road
Years of driving the same road with iron stagecoach wheels left the trail lower than the surrounding trees. In some spots, the red clay dirt walls go up over 12 feet making it almost pitch black at night.
Driving In This Dark Ravine At Night Will Haunt You
Though the number of travelers on this 8-mile stretch of road might have gone down over the years, the scary stories have just kept coming.
Rumor has it that you can hear babies crying and mothers wailing if you drive there after midnight. People also claim that it was a slave trade route, and they hung people in the trees along the road.
Their souls left haunting the trail forever. There are also claims of a ghost stagecoach, men carrying coffins, a woman in a white dress, and more.
Stage Coach Road In Marshall, Texas
The historic part of Stagecoach Road starts at the end of East Poplar Street in Marshall and takes you close to HWY 43 in Karnack. The road continues to be maintained enough for it to be passable on a nice day.
I wouldn't try it in the rain or the dark.
