The site of the famouse cliff Lovers’ Leap, this park has a long history of being haunted. Its legend tells of 1800s lovers who leapt off the cliff. Some say the pair were Native Americans, others say they were pioneers. In some tales the girl became dizzy and fell, and her beau leapt after her. Regardless, it has since been a popular suicide spot, and as a result obtained its haunted reputation. Some claim to have seen a glowing white ghost horse; others say you can hear phantom screams and sounds of bodies falling and landing.
