Zombie Road

 

Zombie Road is a short road located in the City of Wildwood, west of St. Louis, in the U.S. state of Missouri. It’s considered one of Missouri's most haunted places. Its real name is Lawler Ford Road and s about 2 miles long through a valley of forest oak land hills and ends near the Meramec River in the Glencoe. It's one of the Top#18 Haunted Roads in the world.

The road, also known as Al Foster Trail, is closed to access during night. This beautiful 2.3-mile trail opens one half hour before sunrise and closes one half hour after sunset. It’s the site of one of the largest Native American burial mounds in the country. It was once merely gravel and dirt and was paved at some point years ago, but it is now largely impassable by automobile. Legends that have been passed around for years tell of spectral American Indians and Confederate rebels, packs of child ghosts, and the tortured souls of working men killed in industrial accidents.

 

The road is a famous paved biking & hiking path known as Lawler-Ford Road. It’s located near the intersection of Highway 109 & Old State Road.  It was originally built to provide access to the Meramec and the railroad tracks located along the river.

 

The trail is ten foot wide and  asphalt surface. Nighttime visitors might be looking for spirits, but they're likely to find police, who have written a lot of tickets for trespassing on the trail after hours. Once used by the Army during the Civil War, Zombie Road is a notoriously strange place. It is available for use by pedestrians and bicyclists.
