Turnbull Canyon in Whittier offers visitors a four mile hike through Puente Hills. Stories say it also offers some spirits, believed to be the ghosts of the 29 people who perished here in a plane crash in the 1950s. Local legend says there are some children lingering the area in spirit as well. They were believed to have been taken from an orphanage nearby and used in ritualistic sacrifices.

Along with these ghosts, the spirit of a teen who found some old electroshock equipment from the canyon's burnt-down asylum and fried his brain despite the site having no power, is known to linger the canyon as well. Natives call the area “Hutukngna,” meaning the place of the Devil.

    I'm very sensitive to the spiritual realm & always feel uneasy when walking here. One time, we took a hike with our baby but kept hearing someone walking behind us. At some point, one of the bushes next to us started shaking hard & we heard a growl. I have an app that sends you to places with high spirit energy & it has sent me to parts of Turnbull that require me to walk down the hill into the dark areas. I Googled that area & it was weird because you were able to see a face in the picture & when we went there was a cross. Turnbull is dark and attracts bad spirits into your home. I live under before the canyon starts & we always get entities following us. I have 2 friends that claim that 2 guys were friendly with them but then wanted them to follow them off-trail deeper into the canyon. They believe they would've been sacrificed that day but idk if they were messing with me, you know ?
