Softball team to haunt Brady canyons

Evil is lurking in the canyons south of Brady. 

Those who think they are brave enough to tempt it can do so from 8 p.m. to midnight Oct. 12-13. 

It's all part of an annual haunted trail fundraiser hosted by the North Platte Community College Knights Softball Team and Whitetail Screen Print. 

"There's no attraction like it for hundreds of miles," said Janelle Higgins, NPCC head softball coach. "Haunted houses can be found all over the state, but there aren't a lot of haunted trails out there. The dark canyons are creepy enough on their own at night, but add the echo of a chainsaw or a scream, and the scare level jumps to a whole new level." 

This year's trail will be set up in a new location. Instead of being at Potter's Pasture Old Camp, the hauntings will take place at Potter's Pasture New Camp. 

"We ran out of parking last year at the old location, and people had to park on the road and walk," Higgins said. "The New Camp is more conducive to large groups. We will still have someone directing traffic." 

The length of the trail will also stay the same at approximately a quarter of a mile. 

Admission is $6 cash. No checks, debit cards or credit cards will be accepted. Proceeds will go toward the softball team's spring travel expenses. 

Higgins recommends that those who visit the attraction wear walking shoes and other clothing appropriate for hiking. Anyone under the age of 10 must be accompanied by an adult. 

Potter's Pasture New Camp is located at: 2774730499 S. Jeffrey Rd. south of Brady.
