Legend at Pope Lick

This is 5 or so miles from my home. Warning, people have died recently at this railroad bridge.

Explore the folklore of the Pope Lick Monster, aka the Goat Man, as you venture into the Legend at Pope Lick. Your adventure begins as you break-in to the fobidden Pope Lick forest with only a flashlight to guide your way. You will pass under an ancient train trestle and enter into the dark woods of Pope Lick on your search for the legendary Goat Man that is thought to inhabit the forest. You will explore the mysteries of the Pope Lick monster and encounter others that have tried to find the Goat Man and failed. Do you have what it takes to discover the Legend and survive?

If you are ever too scared, just say “Monster Be Good” and the monsters will leave you alone and focus on another victim.

WARNING: PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM THE POPE LICK RAILROAD TRESTLE! It is still in operation and trains cross it regularly. It is a NO TRESSPASSING AREA and we don’t condone or recommend disobeying the law or risking life and limb. If you are curious about the Pope Lick Monster, the Legend at Pope Lick will take you into the depths of the legend of the Goat Man.

First Stop: The Pope Lick Monster (the Pope family were early settlers, lick refers to a saltlick) is a half-man, half goat rumored to dwell under the lofty railroad bridge spanning Pope Lick Creek near Fisherville, a few miles from Louisville. It hypnotizes its victims, luring them onto the narrow train trestle until they are run over by trains.

Some say it is a circus freak that escaped during a train wreck. Others say a local farmer who sacrificed goats to Satan has reincarnated as the Pope Lick Monster. Despite No Trespassing signs, many people have been killed, by the monster?

I am going to write about it.

If I survive. If.
