The Seven Gates of Hell

Years ago there was a mental hospital located in my little city, found on Trout Run Road (Also called Toad Road). It is now a deserted building (I recently heard this hospital was torn down to keep visitors away). As the story goes, hundreds of mental patients are said to have escaped and gruesomely killed in the woods surrounding it. If you travel back to Toad Road, you go through seven gates known to locals as “The Seven Gates of Hell”. No one has ever been through the fifth gate. Everyone who makes it to the gates hears noises and sees abnormal things moving in the woods.

I have never been able to locate the exact point, although my wife and I have gone looking several times. Below are some additional stories collected from the internet message boards.

No one has ever passed through all 7 Gates…or at least not anyone who lived to tell about it.

Some Local Stories
For many years, the high school kids in Chester County have talked about a place called The Gates of Hell. As legend would have it, the name refers to the very large, supposedly blood red,cast iron gates at the entrance to an old, secluded mansion. Currently, one cannot see the gates from the road as they are in the middle of a long driveway and a chain-link fence guards the entrance to the driveway. The yard is overgrown with grass to a height of about three feet. One young lady I knew years ago claimed that friends of hers went to the house and peered in the windows. She said that they could seen shadowy shapes moving within. More recently, like 1 month ago, one of my wife’s young co-workers went to see the house with a group of college-aged friends. They climbed the chain link fence, walked through the high grass, which even covered the drive-way and looked into the house. Amazingly, candles and lanterns were lit throughout the house, dimly showing antique furniture covered with tarps and sheets. Also, there was an epitaph, detailing the birth and death dates of a girl named Molly. They didn’t see anything within, but became spooked over the lights and decided to leave. As they walked away, their pace became more frantic and then they realized they were being chased by two large doberman-type dogs. They all barely got over the chain-link fence in time to escape. The question remaining is how could the dogs and the lights be there if the place was abandoned and there was not sign of anyone being near the place in ages? I had only one experience connected with the Gates. One night, the previously mentioned young lady, another friend and I tried to drive out to see these fabled gates. As we drove down the dirt road leading to it amidst dense woods (Blair Witch type), we noticed something in the branches of a tree on the side of the road. As we got closer, we saw that it was a fairly large teddy bear with the branch stuck through its neck! Laugh if you will, but it spooked the living daylights out of us and I did the quickest three-point turn of my life!

The Seven Gates of Hell

Did anyone every stop to think that if something that huge happened, like the story of the mental hospital patients escaping and being tortured and killed, the public would have found out and there would be records? I think that the story sounds more like a over done movie plot than a haunted area. Also, there may be 7 gates of hell, but that dosen’t mean that they have to be around each other. For all anyone knows they could be spread around the country or world, because christianity is not only a religion in the US.

#20Submitted by doug (not verified) on Sat, 2006-10-28 20:41.

yea, it’s a waste

only the parts that jut out of the ground are still around from the first gate… i live about 10 min. from the location… i’ve been there before and we’ve walked through the woods but found nothing and neither will you… my ancestors have lived in the area for years and the gates were taken down years ago and the small amount that can be seen of the first one can hardly even be seen during the winter when no leaves are on the trees.. it’s a very old tale that little kids who think they have balls go and try to do

I was there.

I was at the 7 Gates in York with my 2 buds. We did some research on it and found it using the Weird PA handbook. It was during the day, so we did not have the criteria as per the book. However, we made it to what we believe was the second or third gate, and started to hear sounds. Since we didn’t have any alibi, we bolted. We are hoping to plan a summer documentry excursion and get the permits given a budget.
From what I have seen of the maps, I cannot find a reasonable location of the “fire” or the hospital. Unless the path is longer that estimated, the only other possible location is just west of Range Road. If anyone has information, is where I might be reached.

Don’t listen…

Of course the cops are gonna say the seven gates are bullshit and that it was torn down. So there are no more trespassers.

I wanna go. Once me and my friends get our licenses we gladly will meet up with anyone willing to sneak past the cops and go through the seveth gate.

Dont go unless u love ur life

I went to the seven gates if hell and my friends and i were joking around about how this place is a bunch of bull. My friends and i were walking throught the first gate, second, third, and fourth. We basically ran through all the ghosts, zombies, demons, and when we got to the fifth gate we stoped runnin. We saw a figure in the distance. It weas runnin at us with a chainsaw and it screamed a name. We heard the words: CHAINSAW CHUCK! We ran away as fast as we could. My two friends and i were the first out. We looked back and heard a scream. My friend was no where to be found. We got in the car and sped off never going back again.

7 Gates Of Hell Mind Control experimental center

The 7 Gates of Hell is a mind control underground experimental center used for experiments on mental patients and local people in the surrounding area for the Shadow Governments non-lethal warfare program. Joesef Mengele “The Nazi Angel Of Death” runs the facility doing mind control experiments using “trance” drugs and microwave technology. When trying to pass the gates and especially the last gate there is such a mass of microwaves being thrown at you that you will go crazy if you continue and may receive brain damage. Joesef Mengele is still alive by taking youth drugs he developed. He also still performs experiments at the Harrisburg state mental instituion in the underground tunnels even though it also was closed down recently. There are police (actually armed guards) there to keep you out of the area. You would be well advised to stay out of the area or risk your mental health.

The 7 gates

I have been back on the road on which the 7 gates of hell are located. My mamaw lives in the trailor park about a mile from it. Friends and I went back on the road about 2 weekends ago. Along Toad Road, there are 3 different gates and I don’t know which one is actually the first gate. We were back there sometime after midnight and I was going to walk up to the first gate by myself until we noticed a change in the sound her motor made. I know it was probably because we were parked there for a while but it still scared us. Also, everytime I go back on that road, I never see any cops. I would be afraid to go back there and get shot because there’s a shooting range off of Range Road, the other part off of Toad Road. I am definately willing to go back into the gates and witness what happens. I have heard too many stories and want to find out the truth.

Forget about it!

look… I’ve been through the gates once, when all of them were standing. not all of them, I don’t have the strongest self-control. I’m happy to read the police is guarding the place now, as they have all reason to do. the last years I’ve been trying to deny that I ever heard of the gates, because travelling through them was very traumatic, and the main reason I moved from Pensylvania. I know my comment will just make you more curious, but believe me, it’s not worth it! just don’t go there! forget you ever heard about the place!

7 Gates Documentary


Don’t worry about the ghosts and dead people at the 7 Gates of Hell. It’s the live people you need to worry about when making your documentary. Think Tunnels. 4th Reich. Joesef Mengela. Haarp. Mind Conrol. New World Order. Harrisburg Mental Instituion to the north. Aberdeen military proving grounds to the south. Charles Roberts to the east and the tunnel complex near Gettysburg. If you can think out of the mold then you just may have a great story to tell. If you can uncover a Monarch cage during your expedition and make it back home your find just might be the 10th wonder of the world. If you find a Nazi uniform then I suspect you’ve gone to far and you’ll never make it back home with your documentary. You need to hurry though as the caves are caving in. Please be careful the Haarp is watching. Repeat Haarpo is watching. Map. Monocasy Mind Fields.

7 Gates Of Hell

If you are really serious, and I mean really serious, and are not truly afraid to find the 7 gates of Hell in Hellam. Go to the Harrisburg Mental Hospital. It is closed down now. But, if you can make it inside go down below the basement. There are “underground tunnels” the likes of nothing you have ever seen down there. Extending over 18 acres. Large doors. There are hidden doors. These tunnels run to Hellam “the 7 gates of hell” with a straight line down to the military Aberdeen Proving Grounds. The story of the century is down there to tell. If you make can it back to tell. You’ll need a deflector “microwave” proof helmet. Hurry fast though. Many of these tunnels are currently being caved in to hide what went on down there in the past and what is going on now. Only the truly brave, the truly serious and the truly courageous should seek this adventure out. A real American warrior. A bounty hunter. There is a reward for you if you can infiltrate these tunnels and make it back with the bounty. The bounty hunter prize is: Capture the “young” Dr. Josef Megela. The Nazi Angel Of Death who is supposedly dead but is alive and takes youth drugs developed in Nazi Germany developed by experimenting on Nazi death camp children. He looks to be 20 years old. Must be taken alive and well. No injuries. A DNA test will be taken to prove. A 39 million dollar reward is yours for the capture. You need to hurry though. Please be careful as the Haarp is watching. Repeat: Harpo is watching. Upon capture we will know.

Recent experience

Me and two friends decided to go check it out last night. We found Toad road which is now Trout Run road, that part was easy. We parked like a mile or so away, and then walked to the gravel road, then down the clearing. We then came to a steep incline, which we went down. At the bottom we came to the river. Since it was dark, we didn’t have a flashlight, or any knowledge of where the gates or hospital site might be, we didn’t cross the river. We just walked back to the car. We did get questioned by some cops, and they said that the seven gates were bullshit. But they were more concerned to see if we had drugs. So we left with no problems. We didn’t experience anything weird in the area we were at. But now that we’ve been down there we want to go back. Does anyone have specific details on where the gates actually are once you’re in the woods?

Re: The Seven Gates of Hell

Seven Gates of hell…. my friend and i went last night to the famous trout run road. When we got to the 1st gate it was old and we knew we were in the right place. As we continued through 2nd 3rd and 4th we heard noises and people crying. A gun shot went off but it could of been the shooting range near by. You probably think this is a joke but no as we were continuing through the 5th gate we heard a chainsaw.. it was coming closer! We freaked out and ran back to our car. But the lights were flickering on and off but i had the keys in my hand. We jumped in and sped off.. but when my friend looked behind us making sure the chainsaw man didn’t jump on our car she saw headlights getting closer. There wasn’t any cops so we just kept speeding, the car kept following. We thought he was signaling us to come back to finish our journey to the 7th gate OF HELL! Do not go… do not attempt. Someone will get you, someone will! We garauntee IT! The jeep got right up behind us.. but there wasn’t anyone in it. I stepped on the gas and kept going. The jeep finally disappeared. It just vanished. We will never go back. Don’t ever go to the SEVEN GATES OF HELL.

I heard that after the 3rd gate all of your electronics go out, and that one time a guy went through all seven gates, they found him on the side of the road a couple days later insane. I dont know if it is true but it deffinitly makes it a whole lot scarier. Unfortunately they took down all of the gates except for the first one.

According to research, Dr. Mengele is dead. In 1979, he died, drowning in a river in Brazil. How could he be alive in the USA near or on the property of the seven gates? It just doesn’t make sense. Although, I would dare some bounty hunter with guts, to go there and capture what has been a horror story for years. Then document every move and make it out alive to make a real true movie….

Hmmm…. Intresting.

So, I was thinking about planning a trip down to york sometime soon and I was reading all of your intresting stories. a few don’t really add upto much. Although, I’ve been doing alot of research about this and found NOTHING about an old abandon asylum anywhere near there. I went to Yahoo maps and looked on the hybrid view of the area. I found the road and the shooting range and I also can maybe see the “7 gates trail” although, I’m a bit unsure as to if thats it or not. Now, I scanned the area and found NO large abandon asylum. I know if it would be torn down there would be a large empty field of some sort. So, If I cannot find the asylum or the ground, I would have to beleave this and all information is false. I mean satalites don’t lie. Do they? There are ALOT of houses in that area so, I heard maybe it could be a large house. Well, I also found no large house in that area either.

So anyone with any information PLEASE contact me as soon as you can.


Thank you!

Seven Gates of Hell location

Hey, I live in York, PA and there is this road Druk Valley and that leaves of to a Trout Run Road. One time me and my friends went looking for it, but there was no luck at all. There were no other roads off of this road and i’m pretty pretty sure that there are no roads called Toad Road. I once heard that they nicknamed Trout Run Road because the onwer of the mental asylum would put toads on signs that were in out in front of his bulising to tell people to keep away.

Re: The Seven Gates of Hell

Hello again my name is Jenna and I was reading one of these comments about the location. When me and my friends went looking we went to the end of Trout Run Road. We saw three little “passages” that you could take. We decided to take the one that was closes to this big white house. We saw a red gate, but I have seen the same gates all over that area. One kid that we were with said that a friend of his went back that same path we took about a 1/2 mile and he said that no paranormal activity went on. My friend and I just looked at Trout Run Road on this map. We saw a faint path that lead to what looked like an area that had something on there before. Which was right next to the path that me and my friends took. Also there was a sign right before the path that we took. some kids took out their cell phones and tried to read it, but it didn’t help at all. There is no Toad Road anymore it’s called Trout Run Road.

So if there was such a thing as the seven gates, whay hasn’t anyone ever taken a video camera to prove it. Also, the seven gates is not that unheard of, so i figure SciFi would have sent in the ghost hunters by now. Was it ever decided if the seven gates were in York or Chester. And if there are seven gates, wouldn’t there be seven locations? Someone said there was one in kentucky which is totally believable because Kentucky is a really wierd place. If I died and had my choice of haunting a place, it would be in kentucky.

Re: seriously….

i just went there tonight. the place is a total hoax. nothing at all but a narrow trail through the woods. the only thing worth fearing is lime disease from ticks and cuts from thorn bushes. dont bother, seriously. what a waste of time.

Cheap Thrills

I live about 15 minutes away from the 7 Gates of Hell (it’s just up the road from the York Galleria Mall). I’ve been there 3 times, during the day, mind you, but not knowing that it was the exact location of the gates until recently. I go up that way every year for a forest walk for my school’s environmental club. The man who owns the land up there also owns a local tree farm, and he always gives us a tour of the land and shows us trees. I’ve never really felt anything odd, but that could have been because I went in the afternoon. Our group met at the corner of Trout Run Road and Range Road to start the walk back in the woods. Nothing creepy happened until this last time i was there, and as we were walking by an old stump, there was this machete knife stuck into the tree. This was pretty deep into the woods, about 1-2 miles in. I never saw any gates, but then i found out later that apparently all but the first gate were torn down. Never saw any cops, but again, it could be because it was during the day. I’m going up there again this winter, and I’ll ask more about where the gates are, because I really want to see something that is actually scary in York. Also while we’re walking through the woods we get to this part where there are beer bottles galore on the ground. Part of me thinks that the “scary” part of the gates is just a bunch of drunk kids scaring people. I couldn’t even see the first gate from Trout Run Road, but it was in the winter and I heard it’s hard to see the gate from the road when there are no leaves on the trees.

A bunch of kids from my school went to the gates last year a bit before halloween and reported that at the 3rd gate, they lost all cell phone reception and at the 4th gate, their flashlights died, so they ran back.

i’d say that if you live close, come check it out. but don’t make a pilgrimage from far away for some cheap thrills.

I live in Roanoke, VA. The Route 666 Catawba that you speak of is a real place. I used to go camping down that very road alot during the summertime. But the problem is that THE GATES are not there. I’m sure of that. Throughout High School these GATES were always talked about, always sought after, but never found. But the general area is down Hardy Road, off of Hardy Road. Vinton VA-Bedford County. This IS the general location.This road will take you to the direction of Smith Mt. Lake. But if there are a Seven Gates of Hell, it would be off of that road. Lets put it this way, I can go to a small house party in Roanoke and ask random people about the GATES, and at least a few people have heard about it. The problem is locating it? SOMEONE::::: Hardy Road, Vinton , VA??? HEARD OF THAT LOCATION?????? I NEED SOME DIRECTIONS? I WANT TO SEE WHAT EVERYONE IS TALKING ABOUT!!!!!

Gate of Hell in Ks

Yup, there is. It’s just outside a town called Stull, ks. There used to be a church standing in the center of the graveyard, however it was torn down due to mesterious deaths and injuries. There are also cops watching that place, as well as the locals will chase you off. Other that that, don’t have any eye-witness material to say whether this is a valid site or not. I have heard it said the Pope will not fly over Stull ks due the the Gate to Hell. I’ve been a Central Ks resident all my life, never heard of another place with the most potential for the Kansas gate.

They’re real

My boyfriend went there awhile back before we even knew each other but he told me the story. The first three gates apparently you see orbs floating around and you hear noises in the woods like people moving about. He didnt get get far past the forth gate cause once he stepped past it he heard agonizing screams coming from all around him. He had to yell at his friend next to him just to hear and there were shadowy shapes running about. Finally they ran out before the fifth gate unable to take it anymore. He said he’ll never go back but me and my best friend wish to visit. If you want to know anything more my AIM screenname is Namirra1.

Don’t Waste Your Time

Seriously do not waste your time or gas trying to go back on toad road. My friend’s grandpa owns the land and has torn all the gates down except for the first one to keep retards like you out. The only trail that is back there is a trail for the logging company to drive through. The clear cut path down to the codorus creek is for the electric lines that run back there. My friends all live about 5 minutes wasy and we always went back there way back in high school and the only thing running through the woods was a bunch of deer we stumbled upon. If you really want to find some spooky shit, go up to gettysburg and walk around the battlefied, especially around devils den. Check that out it would be more worth it. as for Toad Road, its not even called that anymore. The only thing back there is a dirt road with one house and a huge hillbilly with a shotgun ready to blow your head off.

What is the Correct Location

We have been back their several times now and there are 3 possible locations for the gates to be. One is the old logging road on top of the hill, another is down the hill where the pavement stops, there is an opening in the woods there that could be a path. THe last one is where we think the gates may be. It is on a corner where there are 2 old metal gates one is to the right the other is to the left. The one to the left runs parallel to the road. This old gate has red spray paint on it. Also their is a sign post in the ground but the sign has been removed. This could be the sign that pointed out Old Toad Road. If anyone has any correct information on this please respond. Also they have recently put orange signs up back their that state the area is patrolled. If their is nothing back there then why patroll the area?

It costs nothing to enter the Gates of Hell per se, but I would suggest bringing 300 or 400 dollars in case the cops find you [technically you’re trespassing, for which you’ll get some hefty fines].

Good luck if you do decide to go! Maybe you could film it or something? Make a nice gift for someone, eh?

Hells Gate Visit—Spooky Pics and a haunted house in Newville Pa

I went there a couple of times several years ago. During the day we went exploring all throughout the woods. About a few miles into the woods we found a neat old building foundation, but nothing really indicative of 7 real gates. However, when we revisted the road at night we saw a pickup truck with several locals in the back with a high powered spot light looking into the woods…it was strange. We took pictures of the woods at night from the car and almost everyone one had the little white spots, sometimes called orbs, that people associate with ghosts. This place is spooky but, unfortunately Im skeptical about the 7 gates site, however, there is an old house in Newville Pa (about 1.5 hrs away from the alleged 7 gates location) that we have had several amazing sightings which resulted in ligit photos and videos. To get there take Pa 81 south and get off the Newville exit (im not sure of the exit number) and head towards town. The house (people have called it the Mcallister house) is directly opposite of a small school.

The truth

There’s a lot of conspiracy on this site alone. People saying it’s not true, there is nothing back there,others saying it is in one’s best interest to not go back there. I’m watching this movie, and this chick just threw up like six pints of blood. How the hell does that happen? Oh, anyway… I’m going back there within the week, both at day, and night. Cops are easy to avoid, they’re the least of my worries. Hey, the blood has completely dissappeared off the floor in this Anyway, when, or.. if I come back. (ohhhh..dun dun duuuuun… spookeh.)

Yeah. I wrote this topic with directions along time ago, least it feels like. I have received numerous questions about the directions via and I would first like to point out,

The location I have submitted in the original message with directions is just a location I determined through researching one of the (2) possible where abouts of the “Gates”. This is infact one of the possible locations that it is at. Whether it is the correct one is up to you all to figure out. Personally I felt standing at the gate and staring down the path that something horrible was indeed back there. Even at 8:30A.M when birds should be able to be heard still chirping away. It was silent. A stream runs off the road not far and you couldn’t even hear that. I did take a few pictures but after having somemone professionally examine them they determined that the weird shadows in the photes were caused due to the 700k camera phone which is an inadequate way of detecting things.

Hence hearing this i deleted them from and from my computer. I no longer have them so please don’t bother to ask. If you need directions they are posted on this site. This is all the information I have regarding this location of the possible “7 Gates of hell”. As for police activity. Its located in some small hick ass part of York/Lebonan which they have a small police force and after speaking with a police officer told me they could care less about people going to that location. Anyone they ever did give out fines or arrest had drugs on them or were trespassing on the local residential property inwhich that person called the police.

When you take the directions you come to the end where your made to turn right. Directly ahead of you is a newer looking gate which i believe was an green color at the time visited. That is possibly your first gate or the new first gate cause the other gates were either removed, collapsed etc. I don’t know. I have not personally been past that first new gate. Because to feel something that horrible in the day emitting from that location. I was not prepared.

Don’t ask me to go with you. Someday I will go back on my own and resolve the problem. whether its the true “7 Gates to Hell” or not. There is definitely something fugged up taking place there and it needs to be removed.

Congratulations for those that took the time to read down to this sentence. Thank you

Re: Ive been down to “The Seven Gates of Hell”

I like to see the place but i live in kansas. But they are there all around you and everyone else. Probably you have to go in to see and believe that they are there. To help you out so you can see more of ghost and scary demons out there, but you are trying to see the building right! Ghost or demons can’t touch you if you believe in heaven or hell then you can not be touched, but they can touch you if they have red eyes. You should keep on going in the first gate of hell, to see it. But it does not seem to be that scary to me, but if i was there i can help you get in the gate way of hell to see more in there. If you need more help to answer any of your questions, you know how to find me by my e-mail.

underground tunnels

There is a tunnel near the river. An underground tunnel. If your seeking real adventure go there. It’s an open tunnel just follow the susquehanna river road. You can see the opening from the road. When entering the tunnel it will curve to left. On the side of the wall there is a latch. That’s where the Harrisburg mental institution tunnels are connected with the Aberdeen Military proving ground tunnels, if they haven’t caved it in yet. I wouldn’t go there……Only if your brave enough to think you can make it back out, which is doubtful. But, if you do make it back out you may have a story to tell that could shock the nation.

Not right

I drove to the seven gates of hell two years ago. We followed the directions and found the first gate. Which is probably not the supposed first gate of hell. It’s just another plain gate to keep vehicles out. We parked the car, got out and jumped the gate. Walked down the hill and ran into a big god damn river. There is nothing there. We didn’t just turn back there, we kept walking around the woods and nothing happened. I’ve read the stories of others who were in the same situation and actually crossed the river. They said they ended up in a corn field, pissed off that they drove so far for nothing. CAN ANYBODY EVEN FIND EVIDENCE OF AN INSAME ASYLUM IN HELLAM, PA???? I searched for evidence to find if one even existed and came up empty handed. You would think that an incident such as this would be on record somewhere but it isn’t. Someone please find me evidence that this place existed. Because without this evidence, this place is just an urban myth.

Story is wrong

The story of the people who crossed the river and wound up in someones back yard… yea they started looking again and found a path, started seeing some things until they realized it was a TRUCK coming down the path. The story didn’t say anything about screams. Just noises. Wow imagine that, hearing noises in the middle of the woods. These people were scared by their own shadow!

The seven gates of hell

well my story isn’t as intersting but here it is. We were driving around toad road spotting deer and it was a full moon out and as all of you very well know that the first gate starts there but you cant drive through you would have to walk. well me my cousin and his girlfriend were in the car and we stopped beside it and my cuz’z girlfriend never knew the stories of the gates so we explained to her and we just sat in the car lookin at the gate. Now i have to admit we are all chicken shit. none of us wood get out and go stand infront of the gate. But we drove away and I always have to look over my shoulders to make sure we wernt eing followed or that no ghost caught a ride in the back of the car as we are leaving. But i thought i saw a shadow near the gate but i could have just been seeing things so…thats how interesting my storie is.

I took the bounty challange and have seen a 7 gates

I am ex military and facinated with the paranormal, I own my own company and have 3 people work for me full time and we travel the country insearch of the things that go bump in the night. Ive been to the tunnels that lead towards the gates. Beware most were caved in and all of them are problably caved in by now. I did hear sounds in the distance but I kept going. The story of the man with a chain saw is a myth and you problably were on some ones property and he was chasing you away. One story I have heard over and over is the jeep chasing you down the road and disapeering, I believe it is true. When I went up there I did my research a few nights before and walked up that road, I saw the jeep in the distance with a night vision scope, it just sits there, in my opinion its a security gaurd or military police familiar with the roumors and like to fuck with people that come up there. The fear you feel when you are standing in front of the tunnel is un-explainable and walking it is just as bad, you feel it in your stomach like a really cold feeling that you shouldnt be there and night vision makes it evern worst cause you see reflections in the distance that end up being bats.

Once you get to the old institution its is a mision in its self to find your way up to the first floor and out the main entrance, you know when you are getting closer to the institution because there are alot of old beds and creepy looking stretchers and other questionable medical supplies stored down there. My associates and I got lucky, the building looks like shit, but we managed to find a very poor rendering of a plaquered showing the main entrance, medical ward and other such important places. opon exiting a window( the main foyer and hall ways surrounding were destroyed) we saw a stone gate in the distance surrounded by tall grass and a creepy tree with a few crows cauking away. We set up camp for the evening and did several tests through the night. There is a defenant paranormal presence there, infact one of the strongest we have ever came apon. I have been doing this for more than 12 years now and that was the scariest 3 days of my life. The rest of the gates are scatered throughout the property and looked run down and rusty and we did hear what it sounded like moans around us and did feel weaker and faint the farther we went. I do not fore see my self ever going there ever again.

As for the Nazi angel of death,I dont know what to tell you guys, we didnt see any signs of a nazi doctor ever being there. I anyone has any questions or would like directions to the tunnels leading to the institution I would be more than willing to give them to you.

Two young cousins of mine, breanna and Daisy, talked me into taking them to the seven gates of hell location in Mt. Wolf PA. Sun Oct. 21st.
I was taking them home right after, and it was near dusk.
All we did was a drive down trout run road to find it.
We did find a red gate, with an overgrown trail.
The girls would not get out of the truck, they were afraid.
I took the girls home. It was Sunday Oct. 21st.
On Sunday Oct. 28th I invited two sisters of mine into Halloween and ghosts to go for a drive on trout run road to look for some.
Only one could go, and we took some of her kids.
We each brought along digital cameras.
One of her oldest boys Zach 17 and our nephew Chris 25 asked to get out and walk when we neared the part of the dirt road with the red gate.
We dropped them off.
They were not there when we got back.
It was almost dusk, so we went looking for them, figuring they wen’t beyond the gate.
We also had along my 7 yr old nephew matthew, a real adventurer.
We followed the overgrown trail deeper into the woods. No houses around.
The trees, mostly larger evergreen hemlocks, oaks, and Beech trees, made the forest all the more spooky. The ground was covered with leaves and twigs which cracked beneath each footstep.
The trail wound downwards as it got darker and the trees bigger.
Cool and large rock formations began to appear as we approached a swift running creek, the Codorus. The white sycamore trees looked haunting in the fading light, as they were dotted along the banks of the creek.
We found Zach and Chris at the end of the trail, they were exploring the area as the currents of the stream swiftly ran by.
The area was pretty fascinating with oddly shapped trees and rock embankments, with the dark forest and the rapidly flowing water as a backdrop.
We started to take photos, posing on spooky trees, or just of the eery scenery.
My sister Mimi then left out a gasp, and got noticeably excited.
She had captured something on her camera.
I looked at it, and sure enough there were round orb like white or green bubbles in the photo. They were outlined by glowing halos. various sizes, each having a face in them, which resemble skulls. Two dark eye sockets, nose cavity,
and mouth area.
We all then made a hasty retreat back up the trail, my sister and Matt paving the way in the now darkness. I took numerous photos and so did my sister.
On the way home we examined the photos. It was unbelievable. There were countless orbs, faces, skulls.
There were even some photos with white forms, visible outlines of moving figures,
and as if to give credit to the name seven gates of hell, Satan is in several pictures.
In one photo I captured of my sister as she is running, the devil is actually behind her clearly visible horns, eyes and all.
Closer examination on our home computers wer’e incredible.
The photos have no logical explanation.
After visiting these woods, it is easy to see why ghosts are portrayed as white figures and skulls, and the soul as an orb of energy to haunt the earth.
The common conception of how the Devil looks has also be reinforced by visiting these woods.
I am certainly glad to have been there.
It is unfortunate, but there are numerous pink ribbons and surveying activity at the site. These spirits may have houses to haunt soon.

7 gates of hell

The 7 gates are tunnels to reptilians and the electronic Haarp machine expeirmentation in MIND CONTROL. Be careful. Don’t get too involved. Just try and have fun. If you make it back. Forget about it. Then go on about your life. Although your life may never be be same again. You won’t know this though cause of the mind control.

i went to the gates on halloween 2007

Well it was halloween night tonight, and I passed out some candy at home, hoping that there would be a party to go to somewhere but finding nothing, considering it is a wednesday night. So my friend suggested that we go visit the gates of hell, i had never been, and only heard stories. So our group of four heads out, at first we went the totally wrong way because my friend thought he remembered but really didnt lol, so i called someone to give me directions. We pulled off by a corn feild and went through the metal gates. Everything was fine at first, I wasn’t scared at all, we just kept walking til two of the guys with me had to stop to take a piss, lol. So we were all standing when suddenly we heard heavy footsteps coming from behind us. My first reaction was that it was cops, but we turned around and shown our lights in that direction and it stopped. Then it immediately started behind us again. We walked a little longer and the noises got so intense we figured we should just get out of there. I had brought a ouija board with us, so that we could try to contact a spirit there. We sat in my car at the side of the road with the hood up in case a cop came we would just say the car overheated or something. So we got out the ouija board and asked if anyone was with us. Amazingly, right away we got an answer, “Yes” (now i know that many people think that ouija boards are totally a hoax but i had seen crazy things with this board in the past at a haunted house that my sister lives in, where ghosts have been sighted by people who claim to not even believe in ghosts, so i trust it). So then we asked it “What is your first name” It spelled out “ETHEL” we asked if it was ethel, it said yes. We asked its last name, it responded “TRIG” we asked if it was trig, and it said yes. We asked it what year it was, and it said “1467” which idk if that could even be true but whatever. thats what it said. Then we asked what town it was born in, and it spelled out “HERE” then we asked it if it minded that we were asking so many questions, and it said “YES” so we asked if it would like us to stop, and it said “YES” so, not wanting to piss off any ghosties, we spelled out thank you and good bye, and left. My friend got out to put the hood of my car down, and said he felt something touching his hair, and push his hat down on his face. We drove off amazed at how we had experienced so much after only going so far in the woods. It was a pretty neat experience, I don’t know that I would ever want to get to the further gates, but i would definitely like to check some records to see if there is anything on an ethel trig. if anyone has any info or just wants to share a story, my email is

Re: questionable

people actually do bring cameras and recorders and stuff but when a person gets spooked to the extreme that much to where they start running they would probably drop it because it slows you down a looooooot when running. but people still have videos and pictures u just have to find them or email the people.

and for the scifi thing, the ghost hunters are trained professionals…not demented idiots like us teenagers and early 20’s who think we are badasses and dont get scared.

that is just my opinion anyways.

Re: Supposedly there is another

I live in south-western VA and i’ve heard rumors about the 7 gates. I got directions from someone who “has actually been there.” They told me to head down 220 until you see a Bojangles. I’m from Roanoke so I was heading on 220 south and I took a left at the Bojangles and continued down 122. We got lost so we asked around and after treveling midways through Bedford we came upon an old church, Escapth or something. I took a right at that church and sure enough that was route 666. I was told to continue on that road and we would enter the 7 gates. After traveling down the road for a couple miles we passed a sign that signaled the end of the road. “End of state maintenence” and then we passed a sign that said “No Outlet” so we begin to believe that it was possible these things existed. After driving down the road it stopped at a house. As you may have guessed there was a sign “No Tresspassing” but no gates. As we backed up this gravel road a large vehicle pulled up at the top of the road. It was an Ambulance shaped vehicle and as we began backing up it stopped and turned around. We continued back up the road assuming that we may have missed a turn. Many other roads and run down driveways are off of the “route 666” and several of them have gates on them. No big iron gates or anything of that sort. After a couple hours we gave up. As we left we headed back toward the main road and we spotted the chruch we turned at. The creepy lookin ambulance was sittin there. I got courageous and turned around to go back and ask him about these alleged gates. We pulled up into the church and turned around, the ambulance had its parking lights on and as we pulled up beside him the door opened, and a, straight up, off a horror movie, lookin guy got out. All the girls I was with screamed and they pulled off. We’re plannin on going back up there if we can find the actual gates.

7 Gates of Hell in Roanoke, VA

The 7 gates of hell is known to some that it was a mental hospital, and to others, it was a psychotic family way back in the early slavery days, that hung black people from the trees in the woods, and off the back porch, and torchered them in the basement. Most of the time, the gates are closed and you have to walk through the woods to get to the house, but on halloween, the gates are always open, I will give you directions, just email me at

But a word of advice, if you don’t piss your pants at the 5th gate, stay out of the basement if you even get that far…Im not kidding.

never been to the actuall gates… last time i was up that way we were taking a friend home and passed rt. 666 then a deer tried to hurrdle the car and landed on the windsheild… needless to say i took that as a sign and never went back… but curiosity is trying to get the better of me again… i may try to go sometime in the future… but to all who are thinking about going up there, you have to ask the property owners for permission now…otherwise they come out shooting or they call the cops.

i was there

OK guys!!

i just returned from the seven gates of hell in hellam PA.

it was lame to say the least. the gates are no longer there, except for the very entrance to the trail where there is a red gate that can easily be walked around. me and 4 friends walked for abotu half a mile through the woods on this trail until we cam to a river. once you get to the river there really is no where to go, and since nothing scary had happened we decided to turn aorund.

i would be very surprised if there was any sort of building back the trail. there is no way a car ever went through that trail at any time. maybe a fourwheeler.

we did see strange lights in the woods but nothing unexplainable.

i have the entire 30 minute walk on video and i hope to have it on youtube shortly. it really is boring.

if anyone needs directions to the 7 gates of hell, email me at jasonlevi@JUNO.COM and i can give you directions from rt. 30.

it really isnt hard to get there at all.

History Debunks The Seven Gates

Like most urban legends, the legend of the Seven Gates of Hell can be easily debunked with historic records and facts. Land surveys of Hellam Township, PA which are done every eight years since 1868 as part of the Pennsylvania Land Acquisitions Act can be found in the York County Library on Pleasant Acres Road. If you can stay awake long enough to peruse through some pretty dry information and find your way to the survey findings for Toad Road (yes, it once was called Toad Road) and surrounding area, you will not find a single mention of a hospital of any kind. In the area of this alleged hospital, there are no occupied buildings of any kind until the farms on Toad Road. Of course, the name has changed to Trout Run Road over the years and homes have gone up. There have been three house fires and one barn fire since the 1900 survey, none of which were noted as a hospital (medical or psychiatric). Ergo, no hospital, no hospital fire, no ghosts.
As for the gates, I was just there today. The gate on the right goes into the yard of the house less than 100 yards away. The gate on the left leads down a path along the Conestoga. This was part of the area that has been surveyed every eight years for almost a century and a half. There is nothing there but private property. I spoke to the owner, who is fed up with the tresspassing. Can’t say that I blame him. Nothing to see. Don’t waste your time.

Reply on question

If you mean the real gates, one of my friends said that it’s gaurded by police so you don’t get hurt. At the fifth gate there is a ghost named Chainsaw Chuck. He chases you untill the ghost car and it chases you the rest of the way. If you mean the fake one, then you have to sign a ledger saying that if you die then it’s not their fault. This is because there’s knifes that come out of walls and real life chainsaws. I don’t know the address of either of them.

idk if anyone reads these bottom comments but oh well…. last week my friend had this book, weird PA or somthing, and i was reading about the seven gates of hell. ive heard about it a lil before this and ive always been interested. so im reading during class and i become so interested. now like 6 days later im researching all this stuff on the gates and york PA. i know the history, and i know some of the things that happens there and ive got some common sense comments.
1. there will only be police gaurding the parimeter(sp?)… they are all obviously too scared to gaurd any farther
2. if the gates have been torn down, so what? the gates were man made but if they serve any significance, then passing through what used to be there should be the same thing, its just hard to see it, right? if the devil posses these gates, why should he take away the power from the area just because humans tore down the physical meaning. see a car coming at you, you see a man with a chainsaw coming at you, yah its going to be scary as hell but its a ghost. seriously, what will it do to you? stop the car and it wont go until you do? so what? the guy with the chain saw will probably dissapear as he nears as long as you dont turn around and run away.

later, i wanna get a bunch of friends and travel to this after high school(were currently in 10th-12th grade), its ghosts, what can they do but scare the living shit out of you and possibly scar you for life(litterally, i heard that one kid went up and came back emo and shit)

Re: The Seven Gates of Hell

I *did* the reserch. If you read my comment above, there is documented, legally-binding evidence that no insane asylum or hospital of any kind was EVER conctructed anywhere even remotely near the site. The only buildings that have ever stood within 5 miles of the site are residences, barns and garages. Of course, within 10 miles is a mall and a bunch of retail, but still no hospital. There is not now, nor has there ever been an asylum. It doesn’t exist. It never did. The whole crux of the legend is based on the existance of a structure that can be proven never existed. The stories are bull now as always have been.

How to pass all gates

There is only one way to pass the 7 gates, being a human being, and that is to overcome the mind first, once that is done, you can pass the 7 of them.
The static low-vibration stuff causing you to see demons etc, is technicaly created by somemthing, opening up some force. mastering some “illusions” that tricks the mind, into being a prey to low-vibration stuff. It requires some type of mastery, but i can teach you how to do it really , really fast.

See it as holographs having sound-actuely , this field is generated-but. actuely it is, obviously negative energy, that is being generated at different types of frequencies (think of a radio)

The only thing that can pass through this gate is with a state of pure conciousness, or pure awareness.(that means fromout a state where you percieve all things fromout the pure spiritual being you are.

This will enable you to shut down, whatever activated these gates.

If you know someone who also can channel
this or that given “Master of light”
(see on my myspace extended list)
or ask me about the links

This sh*t has been generated by a friggin’ nazi doctor
being into the occult. who is supposed to be dead.
(Dr. Josef Megela) playing the “Angel of Death”

He (if still alive)takes youth drugs developed in Nazi Germany developed by experimenting on Nazi death camp children.

“this is said somewhere right above as well”:

The 7 Gates of Hell is a mind control underground experimental center used for experiments on mental patients and local people in the surrounding area for the Shadow Governments non-lethal warfare program. Joesef Mengele “The Nazi Angel Of Death” runs the facility doing mind control experiments using “trance” drugs and microwave technology. When trying to pass the gates and especially the last gate there is such a mass of microwaves being thrown at you that you will go crazy if you continue and may receive brain damage. Joesef Mengele is still alive by taking youth drugs he developed. He also still performs experiments at the Harrisburg state mental instituion in the underground tunnels even though it also was closed down recently. There are police (actually armed guards) there to keep you out of the area. You would be well advised to stay out of the area or risk your mental health.

e-mail me on this adress: i can show you how you can actuely clean up that place, or pass the seven gates and overcome easily whatever is to overcome, by mastering all the main keys of reality, fromout the essence of what makes up the concstruction of any building block of reality..

Like in the matrix, you would actuely become “The Codemaster” shifting codes at will..
Which is pure fun
Actuely the “Codemaster” is something you are within, and can unfold, it is part of your own omnipresent higher nature..

so, don’t mind asking, i’m a pro in this stuff :-)

The Answer - to pass the 7 gates

Look, ths sh*t has been set up, by a friggin nazi doctor, calling himself the Angel of death, found nearly no better to do then to open up some gates to lower dimensions, and, even keeping human souls stuck there- also by the haarp project. It’s some real sick shit-there are also true demons-the only thing you can
die of is by a state of mind. I recommend you to know the nature of demons, hell, etc, because it can indeed be very traumatising to be subjected to such a violence. If you see chainsaw chuck at gate 5, and gate 7 is the angel of death, and you see demons, etc,
screaming souls and friggin orbs with deathfaces in it all over the place, and even here what seem to be known sounds.. i can tell you, there’s been a time where i’ve been down to hell in astral projection, and i surely did learn a lot, and how to pass through there clean, and being the master of the whole matrix of creation, but..i wouldn’t recommend doing that stuff just for fun.

You can acces and dismantle that place through a state of pure self-mastery= spirit over mind. that means=
no less then pure conciousness or pure awareness,
which also set you free of all mindf*ck traps.

This nazi doctor called Joesef Mengele, used to serve death in any way he could, on all life. He was a nazi doctor in the concentrationcamps in auszwitch, poland,
experimenting with children and other grown up people,
really butchering them , drugging them, performing radiation and sh*t on them, and also calling up demons and demonarchetypes, the whole horde..

fortunately, this sick bullshit will stop automaticaly between now and 2012, since the local universe is gradualy, yet powerfully being cleared of all that looks like shit in the face of true pure light.

YOu must know that there is A LOT of general mindcontrol being used now, over NEARLY ALL of America.
to keep people concitionned into such low-vibrations.
The truth is that if this all would be the matrix, you would be the codemaster, and would not need anything external of the commercial shit they try to feed you all day long. YOu have creative force in you, unlimited, and that what the government hopes you won’t find out. They will selfdestruct anyway.

The governmental world is, for most countries, but a roleplay of power to create a new world order, which will not work.

I myself am curious to know where this place is exactly, but, all these little kiddos coming here saying that they’ve been there or are just plain out saying “omfg, don’t go there!” are just fooling themselves and other people (most likely). If anyone could actually bring photographs as solid proof or even a video, then I, personally, will believe…but without the evidence, I will continue to believe this is all child play.

Anyway, as for ghosts and apparitions or whatever…fear could play a big part in the mind and could possibly make you think you see things but you’re really not. Sorta like if you think you’re going to mess up on something, you end up doing so or whatever.

To those who think they’ve been there, humor me, won’t you? AIM: AutreFauxNom

Re: The Seven Gates of Hell

WHAT DO PEOPLE MEAN WHEN THEY SAY THERE WAS NEVER A HOSPITAL BUILT NEAR?!! Harrisburg State Institute is RIGHT THERE on any map close to York, the “7 gate” location althought it IS quite far apart relatively…but it’s true there was a hospital for the mentally insane in the vicinity….and someone said something about tunnels? I don’t know…everyone’s saying different things about it and it’s all too confusing. So is the entrance to the 7 gates of hell in the corner of Trout Run Rd/Range Rd or is it THROUGH a tunnel entrance that leads to harrisburg???

Re: Re: The Seven Gates of Hell

Harrisburg State Hospital is at Cameron & McClay Streets in Harrisburg. This is 27.5 miles from Trout Run Road in York. Considering the story alleges that the patients escaped on foot, I wouldn’t exactly call that “RIGHT THERE”.

Did the hospital get torn down?

Is the hospital in PA still there? I am a parameedic and my partner on the ambulance told me that he and 4 friends went to this place last year. He said it was the scariest thing that ever happened to him. He said he can’t sleep with the lights off now and doesn’t stay home alone. I know…very dramatic, but it has peaked my interest just the same. Apparently, he and his friends found the hospital and even entered it. He said there were footsteps heard but they could find no one there. He said they (all 5 of them)saw figures inside and outside of the building. When they did decide to get the hell out of there he said there was a loud cry that lasted about 8 seconds and they all RAN out of the place. Now, my partner on the ambulance is a young guy but there was a 45 year old man with him that night and he too attests to this. Another of his friends reportedly had a panic attack. I need to know if this place exists or has it been torn down. I don’t really buy all of this but he was very convincing and I can usually tell when I’m being jerked around. There would be no reason for him to lie to me to that extent. I could understand if he embelished a little but what he was telling me was down-right unbelievable. Also, is there a police report about some PA state trooper who saw something there?

Re: The Seven Gates of Hell

I have heard all the stories and none seem to be 100% true. I have gone before. We left mid day and got lost a few times only to find the damned first gate at 7:00… so it was dark. We went over the chain fence and got to the gate and heard growling as we pasted the gate but no dogs. The rest of the way was easy until we got to the building…. there were screams coming from the building and we saw strange people coming out and going form the building as if it were a flash back,… some doctor was the only one that aknolaged we were there and he only invited us inside. but when we heard that we fucking booked it out of there, then the dogs came after us. we did acturaly see 1 demon looking creature as we looked back form runnign from the dogs. it was weird because when we got back to the car the time was 7:00, but of the next day… it was weird after passing the first gate to get back to the car i got a bunch of voice mails and messages asking where i was…\

Re: The Seven Gates of Hell

the gates of hell are located off the mount zion road exit of route 30 west. make a right, and follow the road down to where the sign for hallam is. make another right. go up about 1/8 of a mile and you will make a left on to trout run road. follow the road till it turns into a dirt road. you will come to a sharp bend to the right in the road, and you will see a little pull off area. that is the place. the gate in the middle, the red one, is the one to take. you cant miss it! but beware, the cops partol that place like its going out of style! and the will give you a $400 fine for trespassing!

asylum fire that killed most of its inhabitants

2 bidders say they won’t raze 1912 Building

Email to a friendPrinter-friendly
At least two bidders for the county-owned 1912 Building say there is still hope for the crumbling, 96-year-old former insane asylum.

“What we foresee is to keep the building. We believe the building would be salvageable,” Brian Kobularcik, vice president of Metropolitan Development Group, Wyomissing, said in a phone interview Tuesday.

Metropolitan was one of four bidders to submit offers for the building and 34 acres of surrounding land before Monday’s 4:30 p.m. deadline. North Manheim Township officials, who also submitted a bid Monday, have also said the building could be saved.

Barry and David Jones, who operate a Pottsville real-estate partnership, submitted a bid but said they would not be interested in the 1912 Building itself. Only the land, Barry Jones said, grabbed his interest.

The Penn State Schuylkill Advisory Board has offered Schuylkill County $450,000 for the building and land and advisory board Second Vice President Jack Dolbin said they would also pick up a $1 million bill to tear the building down.

A multipurpose center, part of Penn State Schuylkill’s “master plan” for campus expansion, would be built in its place.

The 1912 Building had previously been used as part of the county-run Rest Haven nursing facility, which now makes its home in a complex beside the abandoned building, which has been unoccupied since 1995, according to county officials.

On Monday, the advisory board sent a revised offer to the county commissioners office, but Chairwoman Mantura M. Gallagher would not reveal details about each bid on Tuesday.

“They’re (the bids are) in various formats,” Gallagher said Tuesday, adding some bids include offers for land only.

An appraisal of the property is set to be completed by April 1, officials said.

“Our hands are tied until we hear from our appraiser,” Gallagher said.

She also said the county planned to pick a proposal and move forward “immediately after” April 1.

While she did not discuss details of each offer, Gallagher did say future plans for the building will have an impact on which offer the county chooses. The highest price will not be the only deciding factor.

“I have to know the building, as it is now, would not remain like that,” Gallagher said.

Officials have described the property as a “liability,” with lead paint strewn from the roof to the basement and pigeons living inside the walls.

Kobularcik cited a 1997 evaluation of the building, performed by L.D. Astorino and Associates, Pittsburgh, as evidence the building could be saved.

Cost estimates for demolition were about $400,000. Rehabilitation costs were about $4 million, according to the Astorino report.

Lisa Mahall, head of the county’s real estate/engineering department, cautioned against putting faith in the 11-year-old evaluation.

“I would say they’re (the figures are) unusable,” Mahall said. “That’s an outdated report.”

Mahall said costs would be drastically higher in today’s market because of inflation and the rising cost of materials. She also said the Astorino cost estimates only reflected potential efforts to “bring up the bones of the building” and repair costs could skyrocket depending on what the building would be used for.

Dolbin said advisory board estimates to repair the building range from $14 million to $19 million.

Calls to North Manheim Township solicitor Thomas Lisella and township Supervisor Barbara Miller were not returned Tuesday.

Hellam Township is a township in York County, Pennsylvania, United States. The population was 5,930 at the 2000 census. Founded around 1736, it was the first township in the area, and it originally included the entirety of modern York and Adams counties. Fire department services are provided jointly by the Hellam and Wrightsville Fire Departments located in Hallam and Wrightsville Boroughs.

Possibly as a result of its name, there is a local legend of the Seven gates of hell in Hellam Township, off Trout Run Road (which itself was home to an insane asylum fire that killed most of its inhabitants). The first gate, which is hard to find, is the only one visible during the day. The other six gates are only visible during the night, and the legend says that if you pass through all of them, you will land in hell.

Why does everyone seem to lie about the gates? Alot of people have fantastic stories but when asked for exact directions, no one gives them. This urban legend about the gates and hospital has been going since I was a kid. Now over 20 plus years later there is still no evidence of anything ever being off of Trout Run rd(Toad rd). Trust me, you sound like idiots instead of “cool” by making stupid stories up. There are no Hell gates and there is no building! Just stories keeping the legend alive.

Re: The Seven Gates of Hell

Whatever the news story is about, it has nothing to do with anything near Trout Run Road. Schuylkill County is roughly 2 hours east of York. I know. At this very moment, I am sitting 5 minutes from Trout Run Road, which is in York County. This may be a legit story, but it has nothing to do with the non-existent hospital. As I told you before, go check the records at the Library. THERE IS NOT NOW, NOR HAS THERE EVER BEEN A HOSPITAL OF ANY KIND ON OR NEAR THE PROPERTY OFF TROUT RUN ROAD. And there is, and has always been, only one gate. It’s a simple steel road barrier gate and it’s there for the sole purpose of keeping dumb, impressionable tresspassers out.
Please, I am begging you, in the name of logic, do some research and use your intellect.

I’m a College Student at Penn State York. Right now i’m researching all the Haunted Places in York County. And, i was especially intrigued by the Seven Gates of Hell story. So, i decided to figure out if there was REALLY a Sanitorium or an Aslyum of any sort near Toad/ Trout Run Road in York County. I went to the York County Historical Trust, which houses all the historical documents of the county. And i asked them if there was any history of a Sanitorium or Asylum in York. The Archivist tried to look it up in a computer and several books to see if there was one ever. And, there is NO mention of an Asylum or Sanitorium of ANY sort in York County’s history. Of course the librarian told me there could be information out there about it that the trust just hadnt recieved yet. But, i doubt it. A place such as a Sanitorium or an Aslyum could not be kept secret. There would be a paper trail of some sorts. Plus, there would be newspaper articles about the Fire/ breakout of the asylum. There are no newspaper articles. So, thus, it is impossible that there ever was a Sanitorium or Aslyum on Toad Road/ Trout Run Road in York County. However, i shall research whether or not there was a fire that occured on that road. Whether or not there was a church on that road, and if there were any murders that occured on that road. Since the lesser known myths about Toad road revolve around that. Also, i reccomend that you buy The Ghosts of York County. There is an interesting story about the Seven Gates of Hell which isnt mentioned on any forums on the internet . Someone mentioned that there is a burned down farmhouse on range road, which connects to trout run road (toad road). I actually google mapped Trout Run Road in York, it came up. And beside Range Run road is this odd looking clearing in the middle of the woods. Pretty large clearing. And there are at least 3 objects in the clearing. One of which i am sure is a building. However, the other two look a bit odd. Maybe there WAS a farmhouse which was burnt down at one time? (two minutes later) I’m not having any luck with finding any history of any sort of a fire on Range road or Trout Run Road via Google. I looked in the news section too. There is no mention of Murder that occured on those roads either. Guess the only way to find out for sure if there was a fire/murder or church with satanic rituals there is to go back to the York County Heritage Trust Library again… Oh and when i get the Ghosts of York County book From Martin Memorial Library, i’ll fill in even MORE blanks about Trout Run Road which will probably explain why stories started about Trout Run Road (toad road) in the first place. I skimmed through it earlier today after i got out of school (college). I just dont remember the exact story the book states. I’ll type it word for word when I get the story. Then, i’ll tie everything up so it makes sense.

I think you all are taking this 7 gates theory a bit too seriously. All in all it’s a pretty nice walk and there might even be some good fishing in the creek. I think there’s a sportsmans club or something back the road off of range road. They probably watch the area and chase people off for fun.

I’ve tried to find this place several times in 2003 and I think I’m going to give it one more thorough search this summer. I not searching for any creepy gates where weird things happen, just a foundation of a building.
The first time we parked along range road and walked up what appeared to be an old driveway. We heard a lot of really strange noises(we were not drunk or on drugs) while walking up this road. This road eventually lead to a maintained dirt road, that has a gate and connects to range road farther down, which wasn’t what we were expecting to find. We walked up the dirt road and decided to turn back. We turned into the woods where we entered the dirt road instead of following it down to range road. when we entered the woods a giant pickup truck came flying up the dirt road shining a spotlight towards us. We crawled out of sight of the light and ran back to the car.

The next trip i went to the the edge of Trout Run(Toad RD) and parked in the corner. There was a gate to the left, a gate that went straight and a house on the right. We took the left gate and ended up at the creek, it was early march and we weren’t crossing it. We turned back and took the other gate. We walked quite a few miles, I’m suprised we didn’t run into codorus furnace rd. We didn’t really find anything but there was a really cool rock along the creek with stuff painted on it from the 60’s and 70’s. It was probably a good party spot then when the road wasn’t so grown over. I think I’ll take some pictures of that whenever I return.

I talked with someone from GHI ( a few years ago and he seemed to think there was a right turn off of the gated road somewhere that i had missed. I tried to google map it but it won’t zoom in far enough.

If anyone has any more information or has found another trail, please let me know!

Bat-$h!t Crazy…

Oh, my, the “Seven Gates of Hell”. Funny how many areas have them. And, usually, all located very close together. There is also supposedly a set of seven “gates to hell” that are scattered around the world. I happen to live about a quarter of a mile from one of them (Stull, Kansas). I have never seen, heard, or otherwise had brought to attention, anything remotely “paranormal”. The only “evil” in the area comes in the form of local teenagers and college students trying to either prove their bravery, or scare each other; in the process, destroying grave markers and disrupting the community.

Se7en Gates of Hell

Ive been the supposidly haunted place called 7 gates of hell.

There are not gates. They were torn down now that only stands are the cement markers where the gates were.

And it was an asylumn not a mansion that inmates escaped from and went into the surrounding woods.

That no longer stands… It was burnt down.
Alot of cults went to this location for there “ceremonies”

If you get caught on this property, you are arrested on the spot and charged with numerous violations.

its not worth it.

Having grown up in the area

Having grown up in the area during the 70’s I can tell you that the Toad Road and Seven Gates stories go way back. As mentioned the old road no longer exists. It was destroyed by flooding from the Codorus Creek and never reopened…hmmm Where the current road makes a sharp turn (with field on your right) the old road continued straight and eventually linked to Codorus Furnace Rd. There are areas that are just not normal along that stretch of road. I’ll leave it at that.


can someone give me directions to the “7 gates of hell” and some friends want to check it out

If you go to sit in the front of the gates for a little while u will get chased down the the mountain road by a ghoast car and it will disapier when youve reached the bottom. And if u park there crybaby hollow will sometimes scrach on the bottom of ur car and you will heir her cry but only on cold nights!

I’m in Topeka, Kansas.

There’s a gate around here if you believe that sort of thing ;x

The 7 Gates of Hell are located in the Midwest…Illinois to be exact…finally found all 7 of them!

The Seven Gates of Hell are located in York, Pennsylvania. I live there. Many of my school mates claim to have been there. Also in York is the site of the infamous Hex Murder. My father’s friend owns the house that the murder took place in and he has been there. I have pics of the house. Come visit them in York!!

Can you tell me a little about this place anyone? me and some friends want to go the way i hear its like Riches fright farm a little like you have to pay and stuff if anyone could give me any information i would appriciate that Thanks

People claim they know where the gates of hell are located? I know Toad Rd. is now called Trout Run Road in Hellam, PA. Please explain where exactly these gates are located or should I say where these gates were located? Be specific if you really know where these gates to this mental hospital are located?

i have heard that this place is real from a few people and that it is fake from a few people. can anyone tell me one way or the other. it sounds pretty scary to me and i would really like to check it out. so any and all information is welcome. please help me out guys!!!

Last night me and 9 of my friends set out from Lancaster, Pa in hopes to attempt the walk through the 7 gates. I was totally against the idea, but majority rules and i got stuck in the back of my friends truck with 3 other guys, while the 5 others went in a seperate car. We followed in the truck, as the other car had directions. I was cool with the idea until we got pretty far back off the highway in what seemed like the middle of no where. After getting lost a time or two, we finally made it to Toad Road. At this point, I was so creeped and would’ve done just about anything to go back home. So we are driving down Toad Road, surrounded by either trees or fields on either side when the pavement ends and we end up on a gravel road. We aren’t even down the road when we see 4 boys leaning against a cop car. The cop the proceeds to approach our car and tell us that each of the 4 boys have to pay a $400 dollar fine for trespassing and that the gates of hell are bullshit. Sorry guys, don’t mean to burst your bubbles but don’t waste your time on trying to find this place.

the 7 gates are torn down and the mental hospital. only the first gate stands and is locked in hope to keep kids out. the cops are all over the place. the gates were right along the main road, you had to drive through them on the road.

Ive been down to “The Seven Gates of Hell” I went with a couple friends. Honestly we went through the first gate and all this weird shit started happening to my friends car. The lights would come on and off when the keys werent even in. The windows rolled up and down. We kept seeing shit. We didnt even make it past the first gate and I guess im chicken shit because I dont want to attempt to ever again. Ive been to Hollow plenty of times. I go almost every other night to drink with a couple friends. not a damn thing happens when we go. Ive been IN the pond there as well…Nothing has happend. I dont believe in the bullshit with the hollow, at least I havent had any real proof its haunted. i’ve seen the house, going past it, nothing has happend. So unless there is someone who has actually been inside the house near the house or even at the hollow who has seen something real lemme know. Cause so far. The hollow is nothing but woods surrounding a normal house like any other house in the woods. Its our minds that make us think there are scary things going on. our minds is what makes us see things that arent really there. Thanks…IM me if you feel the need to talk or you just want to vent your own opinion. Murderette18

Me and some of my friends tried to go to the gates but like many other people we were stopped by police along with the 50 other people they caught that night. So i decided to take some of the hardest motherfucking friends i have to sneak to these gates and finally get to take pics/video of the gates,we need help anyone who wants to go contact me asap. 717-3951053/, we need to get past the cops….. the whole reason is cause we found the number one clue we have the girls name who was born back their we found details of what to say and bring back to life, we just need to take the cops off our back so we can finally pass the fifth gate that no one ever passed. It’s time to step up finally do this so no more kids go back their for good.

I was never at the 7 Gates of Hell untill friday night(10/27). I was with my best friend lauren and we were on our way to what we thought was a halloween party on Trout Run Road aka Toad Road. We got the directions from our friend that lives on Trout Run Road and she said that her driveway would be hard to see but just go slow and look for it. I live like 10 miles away and had never been in the Mount Wolf area but I know Hellam pretty good. Anyways Im driving down Trout Run Road and all seems fine. It was a little creepy cause it was 1:00 am and really dark and really windy and all there is on that road is woods and old barns. We saw a few houses but we didnt see any lights on so we just kept going looking for my firends halloween party. Then Lauren and I came to a sign that said pavement ends and it turned into a gravel road. I kept saying I cant belive she live all the way out here because the road was winding and up and down hills and all there was was corn feilds and woods. A good 5 or 6 miles in Lauren says “Amanda do you know where we are? Because I think we’re at the 7 gates of hell!! Turn around go back!!” I was just like oh god! So I turned around as fast as i could and headed back down the hill. I looked in my rear view mirror and I saw a jeep or car of some sort behind me but it had to have been at least a 1/2 mile back. Two seconds later Lauren says why is this guy riding your ass?! GO GO GO!! and i speed up and so did the car behind me. Our hearts were pumping so fast. Then the jeep high beemed me and kept them on. I ran the only stop sign on Trout Run Road and so did he! Then we finally made it to Druck Pond Road and the jeep behind us was gone. Were so scared we just went home and never made it to the halloween party. I called my cousin who is a policeman for springettsberry township and he said he was surprised that we didnt see any cops down there. Im not sure how for we had went into to gates but i dont want to go back and find out!

i know what road u were on and i have travaled up and down that road a couple of times to try and find the seven gates. i think that i found them on that road but i am not sure. but what i think it is u have to get out of ur car and go into the woods so u didn’t go throw any of them u were just driving on trout run road. but just about 3 weeks ago( the first time i went lookin for the gates) i had something like that happen to me. my one friend was driveing and i was in the back of the car with a couple of my friends and we were just driving on the road, the spot that we thing is the seven gates we were all sitting in my car, in front of it gettin ready to get out to go throw it and i turned around and say headlights about a 1/2 a mile away. so i said it could be a cop so i told my friend to just drive the road and make a cirlce somewhere( b/c the road is just really a big cirlce) and we will caome back. so we just started driving and this car slowly started to catch up with us. so we started to take all of the really sharp turns a fast as we could w/o sliding off the road and that car was still getting closer. so at the end of the road we made a right on to another road (make the big circle) and the car followed us. at the spot were we where suppost to make a right again, just before it is a big stone spot were u can take that instead of go like 2 feet and turning on to trunt run b/c it all coneckes to the road, so anyways we toke that and the car went the other way to get on the road and we just stopped on this big spot of a stone driveway thing and sat there. and the car sat alone sit of the road behind us. so we desided to just sit there to see if it would leave. we sat there for 5 mins doing nothin. so then we turned our four ways on and signaled for it to go around and it didn’t, it just sat there. then after like 15 mins of that we just drove back down trunt run to go back to the seven gates and me and the other girl in the back juat staired out the back window to watch the car. it started to follow us again. we hit this straight away were there is nothing but woods and a corn field and all of a sudden the car just vanished. we quickly turned around to see where it went and there was no sign of the car anywere! idk what happened but all i no is i’m goin back very soon to see if i really did find the seven gates. that car really didn’t scare me away.

I was with a few of my friends the other week (the current date is december 3rd 2006). We went about three weeks ago to look for the location, cuase i had never seen it before. we went on trout run road untill it turns the roads turns into another road…the only way i can expain it is with a diagram

Ive been doing a whole bunch of research on this place: regarding where cops hide out, when the right times are to go, when to see things, where gates are located, and i have found out quite a lot of information. If you want to see a good image of everything and where things are located, visit and type in Trout Run Road, York PA. A map will come up and at the intersection that says “glades” on it, follow that road untill you reach an a long road that eventully turns into what looks like a biiiigggg rectangle. i HAVE NOT been back to investigate, but i want to sometime soon. If anyone wants to know anything or ask a question, feel FREE to contact me, OR to give me information. My cell phone is 717-817-7926, and my e-mail is My name is austin, and feel free to call or ask. thanks!

Sorry to hear you had to leave the Mason Dixon Trance Line along Pennsyl-Trancesylvania near the home of Charles Carl Roberts. Understand why you left though which means you must know the truth. Was wondering if you know anything new about the underground tunnels heading north to the Harrisburg State mental institution or south to the Aberdeen military proving grounds. Of the major new activity going on. Or, of any new activity along the Monocasy mind fields near the Rocky Ridge Park above York? Need to know of any other entrances besides the 7 Gates of Hell or of a new entrance in the Monocasy mind fields? Their closing and caving the tunnels in and around the 7 Gates hell area along with the destruction of the Monarch Cages and tunnels leading into Harrisburg and Aberdeen.
Please post any info if you know what I’m talking about. If your Geronimo and are still alive, you know where to post or how to reach. The 33rd Angel needs to know. Info may help to end the silent invasion. Help us end the march of the Monarch Butterfly. Be careful the Haarp is watching. Repeat Haarpo is watching. Map.

You need to look at the photo’s to determine which Gate is the “FIRST GATE”.
