Teenagers would use the area to hold keg parties and bonfires and young couples would frequent the area to evade prying parent’s eyes. Some of the “lucky” ones that would venture into this area at night would experience strange sounds and lights. Sightings of flying saucers, orange orbs and hairy creatures running on two legs were part of the lore.

Ronny has been featured on Conjuring Kesha, In the Search of Monsters and one of the video experts featured on Paranormal Caught on Camera analyzing videos of ghosts, the paranormal, UFOs, Bigfoot, cryptid creatures and strange supernatural anomalies.
