The Trail in the Woods
by Stanley C Straub
Genre: Science Fiction
Something or someone has encapsulated an entire valley on Earth.
The story begins at an abandoned overgrown trail with the scary name of
'The Devils Tail'. The trail lies a few miles southeast of Portland
Oregon. The trail has been around for several years and has many
frightening rumors associated with it about why people disappeared
while hiking the trail. Two childhood friends get together and chat
about the trail. One of the friends, Janet Johnson, an experienced
hiker wants to hike the trail and the other Bob Wild is terrified of
the trail and doesn't want to hike it. Bob tells Janet that the
reason he is doesn't want to hike it is because people who hiked the
trail never came back. Janet thinks this is silly and just rumors.
She finally convinces Bob to reluctantly go with her on the trail.
The two of them set out on a thrilling and frightening adventure of a
lifetime. What they encounter changes their lives forever. The hike
encompasses the interactions of people from two different worlds and
the meeting of a Charles Manson type leader who thinks he is God.
