A Texas man created a “Haunted Roadtrip” map of six spooky locations that he and his friends plan to visit in the Lone Star State, including the legendary Donkey Lady Bridge in San Antonio.

Forth Worth resident Jonathan Forseth, 18, posted the map on Twitter last weekend for just his friends to see. The tweet, however, ended up going viral, catching the attention of more than 40,000 people on Twitter.

“I remember falling asleep the night I posted it and it had roughly 50 to 60 likes,” Forseth told mySA.com. “I woke up the next morning with 2,000 likes. I had to turn my notifications off. It’s insane how it made it to 40,000 likes and I really only meant to share it with my friends.”

On the map, Forseth included several destinations known for being haunted in Texas — the Bakers Hotel at Mineral Wells; the Donkey Lady Bridge in San Antonio; Yorktown Memorial Hospital; the Texas Killing Fields near Galveston; Stagecoach Road in Marshall and the Goatman’s Bridge in Denton.


Forseth said he became interested in all things paranormal after he and his friends visited The Baker Hotel in Mineral Wells.

“The whole time I was there, an eerie feeling overwhelmed me,” Forseth said. “We heard footsteps on the floors above us (even though we knew nobody was there beside us), voices throughout the hallways coming from empty rooms and had this constant feeling of being watched.”

Forseth said he plans to explore all the places listed on the map with his friends. He said he will document his journey on his YouTube page.

The tale of the Donkey Lady Bridge in San Antonio’s South Side has been around long enough that it now has multiple versions of it.

The most popular version tells the story of a woman who raised donkeys. According to a 2006 article in the San Antonio Express-News, one of the donkeys bit a child, angering the child’s father.

The father and other men ambushed the woman and one of her donkeys on a bridge. The donkey and the woman supposedly fell into the river and drowned.

According to the legend, if you drive to either of the one-lane bridges at night to the area the incident was said to have happened and turn off your engine, you might hear the hee-haw of a donkey or a human imitating the sound.
