Have you ever seen a spoopy staircase while hiking in the woods?
What do you know about them?
"On just about every case where we're really far into the wilderness, I'm talking 30 or 40 miles, at some point we'll find a staircase in the middle of the woods. It's almost like if you took the stairs in your house, cut them out, and put them in the forest. I asked about it the first time I saw some, and the other officer just told me not to worry about it, that it was normal. Everyone I asked said the same thing. I wanted to go check them out, but I was told, very emphatically, that I should never go near any of them. I just sort of ignore them now when I run into them because it happens so frequently."

wood and drywall rots and fades away over a much shorter period of time then a stone set of stairs. it's really not that hard to understand.

You see this shit all over Tennessee. Houses that no longer exist way back in the woods, all that's left is a chimney and some stairs. But, everything has to be turned into a spoopy story. Fact isn't as interesting.

tn here as well, can confirm. found lots of old fireplaces, house foundations and stone steps innawoods here. sometimes they seem to be in inaccessible places so that's kind of spooky when you come across them. but it doesn't take more than a few seasons for things to become overrun by nature. sometimes paths will be completely blocked in a year if i don't use them much.

It's not even like you need to go to a really old area to see this. Go to the rundown section of a big city.

The areas to the east and the north of St. Louis are full of buildings where all that is left is a stairwell, chimney, or an elevator shaft.

There was one building near my work where the only thing that stayed up when the rest of the brickwork collapsed was the rear exterior wall that had the fire escape providing a bit more structure to it.

For months it was just a flat sheet of bricks standing there with a bunch of wrought iron holding it up.

This is why when the tornados come and you don't have a basement, you get under the stairs.

They probably told you to stay away because they're crumbling and could collapse on top of you.

The stairs OP is describing are allegedly stairs that are not part of ruins or falling down houses etc. The author claims to have being in contact with David Politis and I thought I may have heard him mention it on one of his interviews just very briefly. Also, allegedly the stairs are very rarely in the same spot twice.

Poor choice for pic, OP.

I was absolutely intrigued by the story the author wrote. It is compelling and well written it does not read like bullshit RP.

Spooky for sure.

You know somewhere in the world some rich ass millionaire is reading these posts, and building staircases in the woods just to fuck with people.

All over new england. Don't have to go far in the woods to find stone structures... real big sometimes. Some with mortar n some freestanding. Don't know of any deep in the woods. But I did find a really cool cabin once that was way out.

>>17300803
Climb the stairs, walk to the very top and then keep going. You will not fall, but you will be in for a treat.

You know nosleep stories are fiction right?

>>17300803
In some areas if some portion of a structure is still standing, one does not have to reapply for building permits to rebuild a same sized structure. Usually stairs or a foundation wall is all that is necessary.

For something as old as the picture though, it was probably from a building where the wood rotted away from a long vacant structure. Nothing spooky but still a cool thing to find.

Or it could collapse when you're walking on it

Either way, the reason to stay away is because they're not structurally sound, not because of some ancient magic bullshit.

The author of those stories said they were fake on his personal blog and it was posted to a sub that specializes in ARG type paranormal stories.

At least do the basic google research.

SE Pennsylvania

Place called Ringing Rocks, it's been on a few different sites and Youtube, I'll link a video there is plenty. There is a skating ring and a boulder field that when you strike the rocks they ring out. Hence the name, Ringing Rocks, I went to Ringing Rocks Elementary School nearby when I was growing up. My Dad would take us to the rocks with hammers and sure enough they ring and chime when you hit them.

Anyway down the hill from the boulder field there is a small pond, couple idiots killed some guy over drugs and dumped his body in the pond. People still call it Dead Man's Pond but if you walk the trail there is a stone staircase that looks just like OP's picture. It's about 50 yards into the woods, not 30 or 40 miles and after we would go fishing in the pond we would sit on them. Never felt anything weird, except the fact some guy was fished outta the pond few years before but nothing spooky, just cool to hang out at.
