ok. im from the harrisburg area. so york isnt that far. and you are telling me, that i cant get together 6 or 7 people, get into an suv drive through and drive through there? and we dont just drive through there. we will have state troopers on speed dial. and you are saying that i cant get through? you must be joking. field of screams sounds more challenging

Sounds like more fantasy than fact. More of an "urban legend" type, in my opinion. Few places will outclass Gettysburg for the paranormal. :P

Nice to be back. Wonder who I made "ill" with me back in 2009...at 67 am lucky to recall what I had for dinner 2 days ago. Guess some folks will have to explain it to me as I have no clue.

to answer all your questions-

the gate still stands, but police will come and arrest anybody who stops or enters the woods.


if you past the first gate, you will succumb to a maze of paths made by fallen trees. Its not worth wasting your time walking around in the poison ivy, and chances are the neighbors will see you and call the cops.

Stay out unless u want to go to central booking or get shot by a hillbilly deer-hunter.

**the story**
In the early 1900's Hellam county decided to give government jobs to local farmers suffering from the Great Depression. They built a Mental Hospital in north of the town, near the Codorus Creek. The hospital quickly gained a reputation for housing incorrigible inmates, and there were reports of abuse and demonic prisoners. In 1922 the mental hospital caught fire, and the inmates all died in a massive structure fire.

The specifics of how the hospital caught fire are often unknown, but the local fire company could not respond in time because the hospital was several miles north of town.

In the confusion, some inmates escaped into the dense woods. Local Sherriff's deputies tracked them down and shot them, after letting their dogs maul the prisoners faces off. No prisoner escaped from the seven cattle gates that surronded the compound.

From local reports, we also know that the fire occurred late at night, and that gunshots and intense screaming could be hear over 9 miles south of the Mental Hospital on Market St. in Hellam.

Now only the first gate stands off the side of a dirt road.


***Reports of Hauting***
Toad Road was once a gravel road leading directly to the asylum. After the structure caught fire, some were reported missing after walking back into the woods. Local agencies removed the structure, the gates, and redirected the path in order to confuse and mislead. Some people, however, still managed to wander down toad road, past the consecutive cattle gates leading to the prison.

Nobody knows what happens after the seventh gate, because you enter Hell and never return.

(Disclaimer-do not trespass it is illegal and the neighbors have the police on speed dial.)

If you walk down Toad Road, you will past the First, the Second, and the Third Gates. At night, these gates become illuminated in a glowing red light. If you pass through the Third gate, you will enter a maze that you cannot escape from.

At the Third Gate, you will also paranormal activity such as prisoners hanging in the tree, dead children running and playing games in the woods, and shadows of men in front of the trees.

The Fourth Gate is smoldering in flames, and now you can see and hear the prisoners being burned alive, mauled by German-Sheppards, and demons from Hell.

The Fifth Gate burns late at night, and the path leads leads in an inward spiral into final gates. You are now like a fox running concentrically smaller circles towards its den to avoid hunters. In the center, the Asylum is still burning on the darkest, coldest nights.

The burning asylum is the center, and the highest concentration of paranormal activity. From here, the reality of Earth meets with the Underworld, and the devil himself can look out. The abused and deranged mental patients were the blood sacrifice for this Insane Asylum to become the 7 Gates to Hell.

Very interesting story. I agree that it would make for a fantastic horror movie. I Googled it and watched a quick video only a few seconds long which showed the first gate. I have to say I didn't see anything but a bunch of trees.

I also decided to take a look at Google satellite maps and I have to say, viewing the entire length of Trout Run Road doesn't show much in way of wooded area enough to isolate any building and accompanying land. The nearest area that even comes close to fitting a description is an anonymous road off of Range Road. 75-85% of Trout Run Road appears to be inhabited or at least not woodsy.

I am very interested in going to this place in York, PA. ONly thing Is I don't undestand where the trail is? If you go to the end of Range rd it meets with Trout run Rd. And All I seem to find is a house people live in there off Range rd and right behind the house seems to be a Dirt road that leads to Furnance rd at the end?

Is this Dirt road what contains the 7 gates? Or is there a trail that you go on off this dirt road. And I read that someone said there is a abandoned house? Where? I see nothing on my hybrid map locator and viewer. I would really be interested in talking to someone who has gone as far as the 5th gate. And a more detailed way to find these gates

ANd the biggest question I have is WHY would you not just enter in on this dirt road from Furnance road at the end wouldn't that be smarter that is, IF this road is what has the seven gates.

Brunianthony@yahoo.com or Contact me by phone if your interested send email to get the number.

Hii :) I'm Katie . I just stumbled upon all this trying to find a "7 gates of hell" in Athens, GA. I live about 15 minutes out of athens. I Found all this interesting, and started to do some research myself on the York, PA 7 gates of hell. I ran across a website stating, "November 2005 Update: It was so popular among local teenagers that just recently, the old hospital and the gates were torn down. One gate stands, the first gate, which is highly visible off of Trout Run Rd."

That was from this website - http://www.strangeus...locationid=8806

I seem to understand that no one has made it past the 5th gate, right? Well what exactly would happen if someone were to go thru the 7th? That is, if the gates are still there or not??

I was actually there today but during the day but never at night(my friends have been there at night) but you can only see the 1st gate during the day, and i dont believe anyone has made it past the 5th one. But the story is that there was a mental hospital behind the 7th gate that burned long ago, and the gate kept them in, and they were used to keep others out. So all the people died in the fire. And after each gate at night something is supposed to happen, i know after the 3rd gate your phone goes crazy. and i know people who have found human bones there, and have brought them back so its not just something they said. but its down a gravel road in the woods.


It is good that people don't know that "The Gates of Hell" are made up of not physical stone or brick. There are many counterfeits all over the world, but only 9 Gates (Hence 9 circles of Hell). But like many people have posted even the counterfeits can be dangerous especially on Trout Run. The 9 are spread out on different continents. One of them is without a doubt in Pennsylvania, and there are several counterfeit sites to keep people from finding them. I do have a drawing of one of the actual in Pennsylvania. A description of the color of it when it is seen, what is written on it, and when it appears.

I did some research on the counterfeit gates. Some people that actually discover a "tear" or what Christians believe is called a "pit" or an opening to a region without a bottom. They (witches) make physical gates to mark the spot, and some even produce fake spiritual gates (through a version of witchcraft). This is only an assumption, but concerning the seventh gate I believe what is on the other side is literally like a vacuum. Nowhere to grab and pull yourself up back into your body, "mind you, you would be dead at that point". There are many of those all over the world, but again I'm trying to say that there are only 9 real gates and many holes like that off of Trout Run. I will not speak of how and at what time those holes appear. Again it is like playing chicken with Death.
