History: "The hills runs east to west, rising to an elevation of 1,274 feet at a roadside park on State Highway 32. It lies in an area of the Balcones Escarpment characterized by flat to rolling terrain with locally deep and dense dissection and generally shallow to deep loamy soil with rock outcrops. The ridge of hills in northeastern Comal County, is on the Hays county line thirteen miles north of New Braunfels. This area is aptly called the Devil's Backbone.
It's name should be a hint that something is just not right there. Locals say it's the most haunted hills in Texas. Many reports of apparitions ranging from 16th century Spanish monks, Native American Indians spirits, and even a entire company of Confederate soldier's traveling on horse back. The horses hooves sounded like thunder and shook the walls of a bunk house. Campers report smelling camp fires (in places where fires are not allowed) and being followed by unseen people while hiking. Hunters talk about hearing footsteps at the bottom of their deer stands. The strangest reports come from a few that say they where possessed by the spirit of a wolf" - Clayton Stapleton
Personal Experiences: Most of us felt a presence at the same spot, which is the picnic table towards the back left of the stop as you face the canyon. Two people reported seeing a black shadow in that same area. Rhonda was drawn to a tree where we found a cross. It was difficult to read, but the name was "Erin" where we captured the most interesting EVP's.
