The Five ‘Scariest’ Roads in Wyoming
Wyoming is one of the most wide open places in America. Here's a few roads where you definitely don't want to get lost here in the Cowboy State.
1. Dead's Man Alley - Located in the town of Diamondville, which was named for the 'diamond-like' black coal that came from the local mines. The rough, rugged mining town dates back to the late-1800s when shootouts were a common occurance on the city streets.
2. Death Canyon Trailhead - Five miles from Teton National Park headquarters in Moose, Wyoming, there's a bumpy, dirt road that leads to Death Canyon. When the road ends, you can follow the Death Canyon trail past Death Canyon Barn.
3. Poison Spider Road - Named for the nearby Posion Spider Creek, legend has it this area earned its name when a land surveyor was bitten by a spider and died. It runs west from Casper, up to the Poison Spider OHV Area, which is popular for its ATV, dirtbike and off-road Jeep trails.
4. Haunted Road - We're not exactly sure how this Cheyenne street got its name. The Capital City is well known for its haunted history. Haunted Road is a one block, residential street that intersects with busy Del Range Boulevard.
