This Wild Hike Near Vancouver Takes You To A Post-Apocalyptic Ghost Town

Like "Beetlejuice" on steroids.
Scary BC Spots: This Hike Near Vancouver Takes You To A Post-Apocalyptic Ghost Town

When the temperature starts dropping, leaves start falling, and spookiness hangs thick in the know it's time to hit up some scary B.C. spots.

For the spiritually inclined and relatively fit, the Parkhurst ghost town in Whistler is the perfect spot to visit this Hallow's eve.

Located an hour and a half from Vancouver, this dilapidated town borders the scenic Green Lake and is absolutely covered with gorgeous, creepy designs.

The buildings are located within a six-kilometre trail loop which leads you past abandoned railway tracks and emerald waters of the neighbouring lake.

Originally built in the early 1900s as a logging settlement, the town was abandoned in 1966 after the industry declined; now, the only things that live here are ghosts and maybe Tim Burton.
