Haunted Walking Tours In Oregon's Mt. Hood Territory

As the first city west of the Rocky Mountains and the official end of the Oregon Trail, Oregon City is filled with history. And when you get that much history, chances are you’ll get some ghost stories as well. For a hauntingly good time, book a Northwest Ghost Tour.

As a lifelong resident of Oregon City, Rocky Smith started giving these tours as a way to bridge the gap between history and paranormal experiences.

“I found that many paranormal investigators and psychics were coming into Oregon City due to the number of the city’s historic assets,” said Rocky “I found that these people all were having paranormal experiences but that very few of them knew the history of the city. I could link those paranormal experiences to real events and real people from Oregon City’s past.”

Rocky had his first paranormal experience in college while working at the historic Ermatinger House, the oldest house in Oregon City and third oldest house in the state. Since then he’s had many paranormal experiences. On his tours you too will get the chance to visit the Ermatinger House.

He currently offers four standard tours throughout Oregon City where guests can expect a mix of history, folklore and the paranormal.

“Guests will pass by some of Oregon City’s most haunted places and will hear stories based on documented research,” said Rocky. “Guests have even been known to have their own paranormal experiences on the tours.”

There are four main tours in Oregon City: Downtown Oregon City Tour, Oregon Trail Tour, McLoughlin Promenade Tour and the McLoughlin Arc Light Tour. Each of the tours change year by year with new stories and information. He also offers special tours on full moon nights and Friday the 13th.

“My favorite part of the tours is when people have experiences or share their own stories,” said Rocky. “Sometimes people on the tour share a story of an experience or sometimes people just see the tour walking by come out of their house to share a story. The tours are about remembering the people who came before us and about telling their story. It’s about sharing their stories and bringing life to the past. One person on my tour said, “It seems like Rocky knows everyone in Oregon City... dead or alive...””
