The Black Hills Forest is located just outside of Burkittsville, Maryland, in Frederick County. It's the location of many incidents involving the Blair Witch legend; however, evidence indicates that the local Native tribes may have believed that the woods were haunted or infested by a malevolent presence long before Elly Kedward came to the area.
Coffin Rock is located in the forest. In 1886, a search party looking for young Robin Weaver had gone missing and were later found there nude, tied together and disemboweled with strange occultist symbols carved into their foreheads and lower back areas. Those who discovered them returned with help, but the bodies had vanished without a trace.
