Teresa Dunn, who is one of the many costumed performers in the event and whose brothers founded it, said that 121 people went on the trail Saturday night. People who went through were brought back to the beginning on a hayride last year and on Friday, but she said it slowed things down enough that about 50 people got tired of waiting and left Saturday. She said there would no longer be a hayride, and that people would walk back on a new trail, which they are calling the “Evil Forest of the Dead.” She said the extra trail back would have a few additional attractions as well, and that they would probably have about 10 more volunteers helping out.
The haunted trail is on Pugh Flat Church Road, off of Highway 139 south of Cadiz and about two miles from the state line. This is the third year the event has been held. Admission is $5 and profits go to the church’s youth group, Dunn said. It continues on Friday, October 26 and Saturday, October 27. The trail will be open from 8 to p.m. both nights.
