Haunted Forests of Masten (Loyalsock State Forest, Lycoming County)

 The black forest of northern Pennsylvania is one of the most remote locations in the Keystone State. Here, nestled in the remote wilderness of the Loyalsock State Forest, nine miles down Pleasant Stream Road, are the remains of the old logging town of Masten. The site is that of an old lumber mill town which flourished between 1905 and 1930, but has since been abandoned, and now serves as the trail-head for the very pleasant twenty-seven mile hiking trail known as the Old Loggers Path.
The only remains of the lumber mill town are the concrete foundations which are located where the Masten camping area is now situated. The area is popular among hikers, campers, and fishermen, but is also known as a paranormal hot-spot. Glowing orbs have been seen floating about the camping area, voices have been heard and recorded coming from the forest, strange apparitions have appeared, odd lights have been sighted, and there are even claims that dark elves, or Døkkálfar, roam the forests at night.
