Weird thing to ask, but have you guys seen these so called "mysterious stairs" found in forests?

    I have been to several survival forums, and I think one of the most mysterious things I have read is about the common occurrence around the world, where lost travelers in the forest would find stairs leading to nowhere, just lying on the grass, as if someone just placed it there and left. Anyone of you experienced this? It is an incredibly fascinating thing when I read about it, and some even say that people would feel terrible danger when they are close to it, as if their instincts are telling them to go the other way. What do you guys think?

    I've only seen and read about it. No personal experience.

    I was bush bashing once and miles from anywhere just came up on a hills hoist washing line concreted in the ground!
    No house cabin or anything for miles around just a rotary clothesline!

    Strange that we've never seen a photo of said mysterious stairs. I've read some of the stories about the stairs though and creepy though they are since the stairs apparently are of paranormal origin, I'd say I believe those ones talking about these stairs merely make these stories up.

    However should one see these stairs if they are real, then they should stay away from them because stairs shouldn't be in the forest.

    I've never heard of this, why on Earth would there be stairs in a forest? I think it's probably just not true.

    It does sound like an urban legend maybe. Or is that the right term, since something has to be urban to begin with. Let's call it wild legend, instead, since the forest is usually located in the wild. Makes sense, right?

    Okay--stairs, really? Hmmm....I don't know. And if those people walked up the stairs, what are the chances they'd be able to return to tell about it? Not very likely, I'd say. But anything is possible, they do say that truth is stranger than fiction sometimes. But in this instance, I'd say someone's fiction (imagination) is stranger than the truth.

    Sounds like maybe someone needed some attention and it caught on. The internet is like that.

    It really sounds like an interesting occurrence.

    I always had weird dreams about stairs when I was feeling sick or feverish, it may be some kind of psychological thing that your mind creates?
    I mean when you are lost and panicked your mind plays tricks on you?

    I have heard about those, but I have never seen them.I think it would be really cool to see them sometime. Of course, I don't want to get lost, but it would be cool to see if they really exist.

    I think your theory would probably be the most logical explanation. It's been proven that hallucinations are a real thing.

    I am very skeptical of thing that we don't have photographic evidence of. But I agree with you, if someone find them, stay away. It's really sketchy that they would be there. Something more might be at play. Of course, this is all just speculation.

    Yes, totally.

    Most of the time these weird urban legends about ghosts and stuff is just the person's dehydrated and panicked mind playing tricks. Just remember mermaids and seamen.

    I have never experienced this, but like others, I have read a lot of the stories. I have no idea if they are true, but if you like Ghost Stories these are pretty good.



    There are plenty more where this came from.

    I have been in forests, rain forests, and swamps all over North America and have never seen these stairways. I have also never seen Big Foot either.
