Ghost Road Scenic Drive

Ghost Road Scenic Drive, a haunted road in Texas

Located in Hardin County Park, in the U.S. state of Texas, Bragg Road is 8 miles long. This dark, unpaved road outside of Saratoga is pure legend. Some mysterious lights appear and disappear at random during the dark of night without explanation.

This isolated road in the heart of the Big Thicket is gravel. It’s 8 miles long and now is a scenic drive. The name Ghost Road was attached in this century after a number of tales that center around a ghostly light that is said to be seen on certain occasions at night. This dead straight stretch of road was formally the site of a railroad track, which formed part of the Santa Fe line from Bragg Station to Saratoga. It was created in 1901, and after the railroad become obsolete in 1934, the lines were removed, but so useful was the track that it became a link road for cars and trucks moving to and from Saratoga. Its original name was Bragg Road, named after the town that was in that area at one time. This former railroad bed is now a dirt road, 8 miles long by 2 cars wide. The Light of Saratoga has been witnessed by multitudes of people along the dirt path. It’s also known as the "Ghost Road" of Saratoga, the "Saratoga Light", and "Bragg Road Ghost Light".
