The Stone House Hike

This week the kids and I finally did the infamous Portland hike to the stone house (aka the witches house) in Forest Park. It's an easy 1.5 mile round trip hike along a creek, and aside from the trail being busy, it was a really wonderful hike.
The stone house was built as a public bathroom in the 1950's and was abandoned shortly after. Now there are rumors that it is haunted.... The building is covered with graffiti, but I guess, in a way, that is what makes it the unique place that it is.
We did not get any haunted vibes while we were there, but it looks like a ghost ran through one of my pictures...

Pin It Now!
