info about hells gates lubbock tx:
They investigated a location called Hell's Gates, an area just outside the Lubbock Cemetery where trestles from an original Santa Fe railroad still loom over a wooded canyon.
"People have gone down in there and never come back again," Stewart said.
Stories of murder and violence at Hell's Gates go as far back as when Santa Fe railroad trains were held up by bandits at the narrow passage on the railway bridge.
"The train robbers would hold up the train, kill the passengers and dump their bodies off the trestles," Hubbard said.
In the 1970s, rumors spread of satanic worship in the canyon below the railroad trestles.
It is also rumored that several murders and suicides have taken place at the site.
While Hells Gates is known to many as a local teenage hangout/party spot, there is so much more to it. During the day, Hells Gates is a popular bicycling and fishing area. At night however, it transforms into an area rife with Urban Legends of Satan Worship, human sacrifice and insanity brought about by kids performing arcane rituals. While all this is Urban Legend, the area definitely does hold some spirit and nature activity. Located at the far east end of Mackenzie Park, Hells Gates sits just outside the rear gates to Lubbock Cemetery, which has fueled some of its Urban Legend status. Anyone venturing into this area, be well aware there are snakes and other animals about. Also, be aware of bicyclists using the many bike paths in the area.
At the end of the trail leading to Hell's Gate is a large mound of dirt and two old fence posts that were once said to be a gate. As it is said this was the trail walked by captured spies of the Union army on their way to be hung. Though many tell the story that it was a common place of hanging outlaws or cattle thieves. This two post gate was the last thing they saw before being led to the tree that stands beyond the gate where they died. Others tell that a tall gallows once stood on the spot where the tree sprang from.
Walking the trail one is said to hear the ghost sobs and whispered prayers of the men and some women who walked there last steps here. Though much of this is unsubstantiated this is the most common of tales told.
There are as many will surely tell you without hesitation reports of moaning ghosts being heard, and sightings of a red-haired general clad in a Confederate uniform. Though what the connection truly is no one can state.
In another often told reference to the Hell's Gate story the strange tale about the two wealthy brothers murdered off Highway 287 are said to haunt the spot because this is where their bodies were buried in an unmarked grave.
It is often referred to as Hell's Gate, the true lost gate to hell, and Satan's secret backdoor. Many strange tales arise and do circulate that this area has been the site of several mysterious homicides and a few reported suicides that have reportedly made the news over the years. There are also tales of strange lights and UFO's being sighted for many years also. But many locals alike say the sinister location not far from the City of Lubbock Cemetery where rock legend Buddy Holly is buried, there is a secret door or gate that will take you straight to hell. Tough as many will tell you the gate is just a tall Texas legend that has gotten out of hand. And certainty this paranomally charged location too holds many haunted dark secrets from the past and present that still are waiting to be fully investigated and documented or possibly as we know debunked.
