My girlfriend and I went out late at night on this road, as we tend to go on late night drives. However this night there were many cold spots, strange noises from outside of the car, an odd light caught on film followed by thumping against my car (which we didnt hear at the time). This was on Pinehurst.
When we merged onto Redwood Road, we continued to feel uneasy, feel cold spots, and at one point a white pickup seemed to appear behind us. When I pulled over to let it pass, it idled behind me and drove off. I attempted to follow it because I was caught off guard by the way it hesitated next to my car, but instantly I lost sight of it and could not find it’s headlights in the brush or through the trees anywhere. On top of all this the whole road almost seems shrouded by darkness. My bright HID headlamps did little to illuminate the road ahead of me, even though previously on Grizzly Peak Blvd and Skyline Blvd (which lead to Pinehurst) I could see clear as day.
My friends and I used to street race there as well, and my friends stopped due to a single stop sign at the western “top point” of Pinehurst. Three of my friends reported seeing a little girl there, and my ex reported hearing nails being dragged over her door as soon as she stopped.
Needless to say, I will definitely be going back.
