THE DEVIL'S TRAMPLING GROUND
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
The story of the Devilís Trampling Ground.
If you are traveling through North
Carolina in western Chatham County, you may not have enough nerve to travel out
about 10 miles east of Siler City to a secluded wooded area. Here prior to 1800
settlers came upon a strange sight: A ring 40 feet in diameter surrounded by a
worn path one foot wide. In the center of this unusual ring is nice wonderful
green grass and other plants the same for growth outside the worn path.
The settlers soon learned that if they placed
anything on this path such as rocks, tree limbs or other objects the next
morning the path was clear of all debris. The debris was pushed aside and could
be seen outside the worn area.
Today, the same experience is happening to anyone
that dares to visit what the settlers referred to as the Devilís Trampling
Ground. Many hunters during rabbit season, in the fall and winter, have taken
their dogs along, however, once the dogs happen upon this mysterious circle they
tuck their tails between their legs and slowly move away. No hunting dog will
even get close to the worn path.
No one has ever seen the mysterious person or beast
that creates this path in late dark night, but it is believed to be the haunt of
Foul Fiend. It has been told that he walks around and around the circle with his
head bent low with a powerful expression on his face. This is what they call
Satan and believe that he is here to devise his plans against mankind and just
before daybreak, he flies off just like a bat disappears before sunrise. The
thought of many is that his feet have scorched the grass so it will never grow
back. Whether he still appears and contemplates other disasters for people of
earth or whether his fiery feet have caused nothing to grow back will forever
remain a mystery.
