Haunted or not, this park offers a scenic adventure
If you’re ever near Grand Tower, Illinois, you can embrace nature with a hike along the River to River Trail. This southern Illinois town is also home to Devil’s Backbone Park.
Here, limestone hills make up the backbone, and just beyond them you’ll find sweeping views of the Mighty Mississippi and a park the entire family can enjoy.
Legend has it, though, part of the park is also haunted.
Heartland Weekend caught up with long-time resident and Grand Tower historian, Charles Burdick, to get the full story. And yes, perhaps Devil’s Backbone lives down to its name!
