I appreciate the beauty of national parks and the great outdoors, although I never know what's lurking out there. When u/BassGSnewtype asked Wanderer, "What's the weirdest thing you've seen on the trails?" I was damn curious to know what those intrepid explorers out there found out:
1. “In a swamp in Florida, I found a picture of what looked like a graduation portrait of a young high school-aged girl, stabbed in the ground with a kitchen knife and surrounded by black candles. On the other end of the spectrum, I also had an old naked barefoot lady jog past me on the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina."

2. "There was this trail that followed the river. The trail was very old and used by Native Americans. It was difficult to access unless you started at a specific end, at a farmer's field. I wanted to use my metal detector to look for old coins along the way. The farmer was there and I asked his permission to access it from his field. I found an old brown bottle with 1929 dimes in it, but deeper in the woods I found animal skulls. I think it was deer and smaller animals like raccoons. When I came back the owner asked me what I found. When I told him about the skulls, he asked me to show him. We went to the spot. He was silent. He bumped against Skull with his boot but didn't touch it. We saw another skull and he said, "I think it's a dog." We went. He said he doesn't like the forest. I offered an explanation for the skulls, and he replied, 'Animal heads don't fall off while the body is walking.'”
"He was seventy-six and has been finding skulls there since childhood."

3. “My uncle was out on his land planning next year's forage plots. He walked down the path that led to the river and spotted a tent. Then he spotted a woman. The woman approached him. He was dressed in camouflage clothing... She walked on, closer and closer, until she was only a few yards away. Then she crouched down and dropped a two. My uncle reached into his pocket and gently passed a handkerchief through a gap in the leaves. She ran, stumbled, and ran some more. Found out the corner of my uncle's property was a former hippie colony that was abandoned in the 80's. Children of the first generation came back."

4. "Once when I was on a hike, I saw a group of dead squirrels. And when I say group, I'm not kidding - there were at least 10 squirrels just lying in a pile. I was alone and ran away from there. I thought there might be a predator nearby.

5. "Stayed at someone's shelter. It had been abandoned long ago, but the person had caged a turtle they found in a nearby stream. It was a tank and a skeleton when I found it. That really stuck in my mind, and weeks later I realized why. I had also found a Tupperware box of stolen stuff from the parking lot that was in sight. The shelter was an excellent vantage point to watch hikers drive in and head into the forest. This person then likely emerged from their hiding place and looted the car for money, valuables, and the random stuff I found in the container."

6. "On the way down on a little mountain hike with some friends, we saw a solo hiker coming up the trail towards us. When we got within talking range he said, 'Do you want to see this cool dance?' Then he proceeded to do the Rick and Morty "Get Schwifty" dance, full squats and all. Then he stood up and said, "Have a nice trip and stay safe," and just walked away. Never seen anything stranger on a hike."

7. "A horse that was licked on the butt by a goat that was on a rock. As if it was standing on a box to better reach the horse."

8. "My dad and I went camping in the mountains. We were just setting up our tents and then we heard screams in the forest. We immediately packed our things and drove to another location. We thought it was hill people eating people or something. We drove past the store and told the clerk that we heard screams. It turned out to be an orgy for people who dress up in animal costumes. He told us they've been doing this for years.”

9. "I saw a coyote hop over a hilltop and continue along the ridge. Then, about 20 yards behind, a deer chasing him. Looked like some cartoon animals.”

10. "I was on a day hike with a friend in Sedona, Arizona. It was a hike up the side of a gorge wall to a small unnamed ruin with a beautiful view of the surrounding area - one of those 'unofficial' trails that the vintage cars carefully guard to keep the tourists away and would be almost impossible to find unless , a local will take you there. I felt honored that this secret trail knowledge was entrusted to me. I had to stop for a pee break, so I walked as far off the trail through the bushes as I could. I found a good spot at the edge of a steep cliff that was smooth and free of cactus. The moment I lowered my pants, squatted down, and started to pee, I heard a deep whoosh — a Red Rock Tour helicopter came out of the canyon right in front of me."
"I figured there was only one thing I could do in a situation like this: give them a big smile and give them a friendly wave."

11. "I pulled up at a trail I was visiting with my girlfriend at the time and saw a crowd of state cops, county sheriffs, investigators in hazmat suits with respirators, and a huge crime scene investigation vehicle. Remains were being dumped within sight. As we walked by, I said passively to my friend, "I don't think they were there the other day." One of the police officers heard me, so I ended up having to make an overly detailed report and so pass my information on to her because they had nothing else to do."
"I've never heard anything else about it."

12. "I was near my house at the bushwhacking when I heard a rustling ahead and saw a large grizzly bear zooming in the opposite direction. The adrenaline kicked in immediately and I ran back along the trail across a creek, heard water rushing down the creek and saw the bear charge at me. We both scared the shit out of each other like, 'Oh shit!' moment and ran off in opposite directions."
"I was lucky that he wasn't hungry that day."

13. "Two guys are digging a hole at 2am - that was weird. They noticed us and called us over, but we just ran.”

14. "I was walking down a dead silent path when I heard a shotgun go off and echo through the forest. I looked around frantically, trying to figure out who the hell was shooting. Then I saw a big tree about 40 feet away they started falling and falling into the forest. The base of the trunk had exploded and the whole tree just gave way. No idea why - it wasn't freezing, windy or had it rained much recently and the tree was quite young."
"Boy, did that scare me."

15. "That was years ago, somewhere in West Virginia. I was wandering off the beaten track through the forest and came across a large random field that was someone's farm. I was about to walk around when I noticed a bunch of people who looked like cloth diapers and headscarves while they were burning a cross with a pig hanging from its chain. They spoke in a language I did not know. you saw me We both looked like deer in headlights for what felt like an eternity. A few of them started walking my way. I have never run so fast and for so long up a mountain in the dark.”
"I had no idea what they were doing and I don't think I could find that place again if I wanted to."

16 “Static discharge from the rocks near the top of a granite mountain. Then later, many miles downhill from that peak, there were noiseless flashes like lightning at night.”

17 “I lived alone in a national park for three months. Several times as I walked back to my trailer for the day, I would hear music like a music box or an ice cream truck. It was always loud and sounded like it was coming from somewhere over my head. One day I decided to look for the source. I followed the dirt road past my trailer. The music continued and I couldn't tell if I was getting closer or not. I had my eyes on the trees and looked down just in time to avoid stepping on a snake. I crawled back but she didn't move. I realized she was dead and she wasn't alone, there were half a dozen dead copperheads sprawled in the line of streets facing the same direction. I went back to get my car because I couldn't bring myself to step over it but by the time I got my keys the music had stopped. I didn't hear her anymore.
“Later I found out from my friends that there was a haunted prison in the same park, the pea farm. So that was good to know.”
