The trail is in Atlanta’s Constitution Lakes Park, and it is decorated with, as the name implies, creepy doll’s heads.

The park used to be home to a brick factory that closed about 50 years ago. Since then, the woods have overtaken the area, and in 2003 the county bought the 125-acre site and built boardwalks and trails so people could enjoy the natural beauty of the spot.

But in addition to natural beauty, there’s also the doll’s heads.

A local carpenter named Joel Slaton created the trail after seeing all the discarded junk that littered the park. Slaton decided to use the junk to make the trail into an art space with doll’s heads, and other forgotten materials, dotting the hiking trail.

Slaton encourages others to add their own art pieces to the trail, with the only stipulation being that any materials used must come from inside the park itself. So if you do go, you can do some exploring and digging around to add to the creepiness of Doll’s Head Trail.

If you do decide to hike the trail, you’ll forget that you’re in the middle of a huge American city and instead think you’ve wandered into a nightmare. Sounds good to me!

Also, I bet this would be a great place for a first date. You’d find out immediately if your date is as weird as you are…
