Pike Lake Park

Pike Lake State Park is haunted by a pair of disembodied hands which once belonged to a woman who lost them in a bonfire accident in the 1860s. She had them amputated and left them in a hollowed-out tree stump, and then died anyway. Now if you walk on the path at night, the hands might come crawling along and grab your ankles or even reach a shoulder.
