First and Foremost...Always, always get permission from the land owner before you set foot on someones property. When you have verbal or even written permission to be on the property, always have respect for the land. Do not leave trash or disturb the landscape.
Now, the Seven Gates Of Hell is a local legend. Towns people will tell you that is doesn't exist. Rumor has it there is seven iron gates leading in to a clearing. Once inside this gate if you were to scream no one on the outside would ever hear you. Legend has it that there was a cult many, many years ago that used this clearing for there ceremonies to worship Satan, during which they would commit animal sacrifices and rumor has it that human sacrifices were done. If you visit this location at night you can hear the animal's cries, and you will see figures hanging from the trees that surround it.
I did not visit this location at night fall for the simple fact that it was hard enough locating it during daylight hours.
October of 2011 my fiance and I traveled to Athol Massachusetts in search of the "elusive" gates to hell. What we did find, after an hour of searching back roads was a lone cast iron gate that had been there for some time, behind that gate was a path. We followed the path, sure enough into a clearing. Let me note this now, that the day of our visit the temperature was maybe 60 degrees with a light fall breeze, as we entered the clearing the temperature began to rise and it kept getting hotter. We both broke out in a sweat and started taking off layers of clothing, it felt as though it suddenly became 105 degrees within minutes...there was no breeze here, also, the dog that was barking from across the street we could no longer hear inside the clearing, there was no noise at all, the location was barren of any sound or physical life. There of course was that heavy energy, bad energy. We decided that I should take the photos and that we should leave, once we stepped out of the clearing all sounds came back to life and the air was very cool. I plan to investigate this area more. I will keep you informed of what really lurks within the seven gates of hell.
