Originally part of the Santa Fe Railroad, the tracks were removed back in the 1930s, leaving behind a straight, eight-mile gravel path. It's here that visitors report seeing mysterious lights floating through the darkness. These ghostly orbs have fascinated and feared for decades.

People from all over have ventured down Bragg Road hoping to spot the famous "Saratoga Light," a phenomenon believed to be the lantern of a lost railroad worker who met his tragic end along the tracks. Others say it could be the spirits of Spanish conquistadors still searching for gold. Skeptics offer more rational explanations, like swamp gases or reflections from distant vehicles, but none have been able to debunk the mystery of the lights.
