I was watching the Blair Witch Project with the kids today and now they want to hike to the house with the hand prints. I have seen the pictures but never figured out where it was. Can someone tell me a weekend hike that would include seeing the house?

Thanks

The area they filmed is north of Gathland State Park. I think the house is off the corridor.

Jeesh, I have a ton of pictures of the place, but I can't for the life of me remember where it was. I'll ask Combat tomorrow.
We had dinner on the second floor and we were going to camp inside, but it was too dusty and rickety and the bugs were out, so we pitched the tarptent next to it. Pretty cool, creepy place if you can find it.
I'm very slowly uploading my AT pics, including those ones,to flickr, so they will be on there probably in a week or two. I'll post a link once all my pictures are up.

This is nothing to joke about. Something horrible happened to me there. Go stay there if you want, but be prepared for your perception of reality to change rapidly and forcefully.

Burkitsville is very scarey. An entire town without a pub or tavern.

Hey, the Blair Witch is a very nice lady who runs an art gallery in Burkittsville. She wanted to play herself in the movie but they wouldn't let her.

The house is nowhere near Maryland....it's near Sinking Creek Valley, VA 42.(South of Catawba) Hike maybe an hour or two south and you will come to the house on the trail with the handprints in it. It is by no means a rough hike to get to it, you'll hike through some cow pastures with stiles, and then dip back into the woods and skirt some private land until you come to it.

Exactly!!! But Keffer is on the north side of the road, and the house is on the south side.

Were'nt the little "voodoo dolls" hanging from the trees inspired by an actual hiker who was hanging them as she marched nobo one year.???

My son & I hiked SOBO across MD back in 2004. The ranger at Gathland St.Park told us the film crew had camped at the Ed Garvey shelter during filming of the movie. Thought he said they filmed a lot of woods scenes on the east side of the mountain below the shelter.

That is a creepy house, but I'm almost sure it's not the one in the movie.

The house you all are looking for is right behind my house on the other side of my landlords house down the alley about half way then shoot across the small field for about five thousand feet and it will be right there..........maybe, I can't exactly remember........

The one in the movie was a set up, the house it was based off of came from the one in Central Va. You aren't gonna find the house from the movie on the trail. This is the one that they refer to as the "Blair Witch House".

Here's my picures of the house south of RT 42. Not very good ones mind you.

I drove through the town once and it was deserted! I didn't see a single person out walking or driving. Really creepy, and that was in the daytime. Can't imagine what it's like at night. :eek:
