Clinton Rd.There is said to be the spirit of a little boy which haunts a small stream. If you toss a coin in at midnight he will throw it back. There is the story of the haunted coach that runs the road. There is also a "HellHound" that chases you down if you enter the woods on the side of the road and see it. It is said to travel as fast as your car can go. (Note: Clinton Road is a hot bed for ghosts and other mysterious happenings.).

ive been there many times and the first was the best. i was with my boyfriend and my 2 friends and we sat on the bridge with change and we were tossing it over and my friends were like yea you`re supposed to hear voices. we sat and waited a minute and PING one of the pennies came right back and hit the quarter panel of the car. its happened like 1 or 2 more times since then but we dont really go there because there is a white truck with a stripe down the side the patrol`s the road...especially on halloween at midnight

me and some of my friends just visited last night around 9 to see if these stories were true. if you stair into the woods for a while, you can see some weird things you cant explain, we were too scared to throw a penny under the bridge, we would never leave that car again. and across of the lake we saw a huge bonfire. we werent sure if it was the KKK or not. it was very scary and i dont want to go back anymore.

two friends and i just went tonight around 10 pm. we didnt see many strange things, yet we saw random lights all over. i also spotted a lot of beer cans/trash all over, and bulletholes in street signs. on each end there is civilization...which helped us a lot since we knew it was over finally! the driver was terrifed the whole time, and i personally recommend to go slow there on account of the terrible winds and random breaks in the road and other side roads. it's quite a scary place i will say, and for my first time it was fun and i saw enough. i will be returning sooon and i will write back if i see something truely spooky!

the bridge sign that its out is still up..i went there last night, but nothing was blocking the bridge like you couldnt go over it..however we had such a weird feeling we didnt cross the bridge..instead did a k turn and wound up going down some dirt road right before it because we couldnt see very well and the dirt road was lined with a fence does anyone know what that was?

I went mountain bike riding late afternoon, yesterday- parked in the trail head on clinton rd. near the camping/ boat launch which is a few miles in off of Warwick Turnpike. I rode into the woods at that point and went many miles through trails and finally dirt roads that eventually led me to "Parasdise" rd. And believe me it was PARADISE once I saw actual humans after a few hrs of seeing remains of torn down old houses and an outhouse, as well as cars with bullet holes allover- Finally I came upon the west side of Clinton Reservoir. Long story short, I then rode the entire length of Clinton from Rt. 23, over the haunted bridge, etc. I didn't know this area was haunted until my stepson told me it was when I got home (which was right at sundown). What a long deslolate rd that was. Lucky I got back to my car before it was completely dark!

I went to Clinton Road last night around 1:00 a.m. with my brother and our friend. Unfortunately, there was a sign saying that the bridge was closed and about two miles up the road we came across another sign saying that traffic couldn't go any further. Aside from the sign, the road was blocked. So we parked our car and walked a mile and a half to two miles before returning back to the car. As far as paranormal activity goes, it was uneventful except that our friend claimed he heard a growling sound in the woods that lasted a minute and the full moon was an awesome affect. Other than the growling sound our friend heard, nothing paranormal had occurred. However, we have yet to view the video camera footage or the voice recorder yet. Hopefully we'll have time to review it all sometime this week. Over all I did enjoy the nightly stroll and would also like to visit Clinton Road during the day time. Especially during the fall when the trees start to change color.

the boy is supposed to be haunting a bridge. he supposedly drowned there. if you throw pennies into the water, he throws them back. and if you get too close to the edge, he pushes you in. be careful.

How do you guys know it's not a resident(some man that lives back there)that's not just chasing all these people off the road!Google the map of this road and there is a subdivision at the end of the road!Just....if it was me......I would drive my car down that road,doors locked, a loaded shotgun, and drive the length of that road! You can't be scared of something that can be explained!I don't live there but....I could probably imagine it was some man that just don't want "looky-loos"bothering him on his road!You never know....there could be hermits(people who don't live in todays society!)out there!I wish I could debunk this!!!!

I went to this road 2 weeks ago with 4 friends , it was around 12:00 . We were driving up and down the road but nothing paranormal was occuring . There's a lot of rumers the the KKK hang out there. Fortently we didn't see none of them either . We were driving when a car behind us went beside us and cut us . My friend that was driving got mad so he did the same exact thing, we were going so fast that after we has passed the other car , we lost control and crashed . Me and one friend got real hurt and had to go to the hospital . not planning on going back anytime soon .

alot of people have died on this road ! its very dangerous , and the ku klutz klan is known to hang out there ! when i went with my friends we got out of the car and sat down on the floor besides the woods . i felt something was starring at me so i started to get uneasy. When we were about to get up and get in the car we saw a big white truck coming towards our direction , all of my friends started screaming and we all got in ther car. The truck chased us out to route 23 . It was so scary .

oh stop there is nothing wrong with this road. the only thing that is "scary" is there are no street lights on this road for miles on end. woopity doo.. i have walked the entire thing litterally about 150 times. went into the woods (I have a hikers pass). I have family that live off of Clinton road. The only thing that you have to watch out for is stupid teenagers driving with no headlights on trying to scare every one.

My brother and I tried to drive on Clinton Road on 10/30/10.  We didn't know anything about this road other than hearing that it was "haunted."  It was around 10:30 pm.  We started at the beginning where there are homes and thought "big deal," nothing is happening.  All of a sudden there were no more homes and the road was completely dark.  We could see the lake on the right and it almost felt as if we were being pulled into the water as we drove.  We didn't get far.  We turned around and left.  Here is the best part.  When we arrived home which was only 15 minutes away, our car's mileage read "666."  Now that is spooky!

There are some "unusual" things that happen on Clinton Road. Most of which could be explained by the abundance of wildlife in the area. But for all of you who are not aware, you are surrounded by The Clinton Reservoir, owned by the city of Newark. Fishing, hiking and horseback riding are permitted by permit. The scary white pick up truck chasing you down, might be the park patrol looking to remind you to pay for a permit, if you have traveled over onto the reservoir property!

Last night me and my friends went to try this thing to see if it existed and it was exactly midnight. We throw the pennies in and next thing you know we start hearing a voice calling out for help. We grab a flaslight and see a car flipped over and a man stuck underneath it. We rush down to see if we can help but all we could do was talk to him and wait for emergency to come. It was such a weird night, like we were meant to be there. This road that hardly no one is driving by at this time, its pitch black, no one around. Who knows what wouldve happened if we hadnt found him. All I can say now is that my prayers are with him, and I hope he is all right.

We didn't get pennies thrown back at us, or thrown off the edge, but we got so much more out of this experience.

In the 70s I lived in Jersey, and my family and friends used to go camping at several sights on Clinton Road.  We never had any weird experiences.  I never even heard any of these stories until a few days ago.  I have friends that still go hiking there.  I'm sure the remoteness of the area and lack of lighting help the imagination...

On a recent visit back home to New Jersey I went to Clinton Read with my daughter, her 2 friends and my brother. I didn't even know that we had pulled onto Clinton Road when immediately all of my 'spiddy' senses started going off. It felt like the whole road, BOTH sides SHOULD HAVE HAD GRAVEYARDS there!! I kept expecting to see some type of graveyard through the trees, but I NEVER did! The feeling was just plain creepy and I don't get spooked easily. It was really late too. On our way down Clinton Read a white car passed us and was highbeaming us!! As we reached the end I turned the car back around to head back down the road the way we'd come...And I'll be damned if that white car didn't show up again!!! High-ranking US again. Then out of nowhere at least 3 more cars came flying down the road toward us making it quite clear we were NOT WELCOMED!!
