Sterling Road is a long, winding street located just outside of Sylvan Beach; the road might be creepy enough in its own right at night, but there some strange things happening around it. Locals say they often hear high pitched screaming in the distance when they drive down Sterling Road, and some have seen phantom cars drive by then disappear. Activity is said to increase if you stop your car in the middle of the street. Two gravestones are located on a hill near the road, and rumor has it that there have been several murders on Sterling.

    Be careful. All that wander on this road are not lost, they are waiting. I've heard people call her "Catherine" but she comes to me as "Cristine". I've seen her hanging in her prom dress. She's told me what had happened that night. She was walking home, a "drifter" as she's called him, saw her, did things to her I don't fe comfortable typing, drowned her, and hung her up in a tree. Shed afraid, confused, she likes when I visit. "I'm only 16", and the screams, are what keeps me up at night after I visit that road. She tells me of the bushes by the water, she fears no one has found her body yet. Many have seen her, its not a game. Its not fun anymore, not for her. She needs the attention, she's alone. Please be kind to her. There are others there. Others not like her. You'll find them if you look. But don't look to hard unless youre prepared to see what hell looks like.

  • Creepy

    Me and a couple of my friends were walking the trail at night and then we went of trail and we’re lost in there for 2-3 hours and kept seeing and hearing stuff and when we got out we were driving down sterling rd and the car shut off and wouldn’t start for about 5 minutes

  • Not really scary but confusing

    So, one night me, my aunt, stepsister and her friend were going down the road in a car obviously and we were going slow, all of a sudden I look into the mirrors and see headlights and then they just vanished. I had my camera on my phone on and I looked out the window and there was like this field and I saw what it looked like a man, I saw the outline of his head but not quite. We went up to the end of the road and went back and nothing else happened. We didnt hear screaming or anything like that. I was just really confused because all the other stories I've seen on here.

  • This place is no joke

    I spent months chasing ghosts at this place . between screams unexplained noises like something out of a horror movie. Unexplained lights ... Trees falling on command. Car being pushed backwards while in drive. Evps. Large shadow forms caught on camera. Being led to trails that once existed but were never clearly marked on maps. The green eyes that followed us .... Numerous times. Let me say .. We started exploring on foot in the dark and by the end of our experiences i myself will never walk down that road again in the darkness .... Having had experiences during the day as well it is thouroughly terriflying. I will not doubt that the women murdered on that road wander .... My favorite ..... Catherine... She may chat with you if you can catch her . she likes her attention.
