Is Google trying to start a haunting legend?

Saturday, December 26th, 2009

I recently wanted to find out how long a nearby walking trail is, so I pulled up Google maps and put in directions from the approximate start to the approximate end. Although the trail “7th Ave”, the walking directions call it “Haunted Trail”:

Haunted?

I’ve lived in San Diego my whole life but I’ve never heard it called this. I wondered if I was missing out on some sort of thrilling ghost story, so I googled it, but all I got were results for the seasonal haunted house by the same name that takes place a few blocks further south in Balboa park. I’m not sure if Google somehow mixed these two up or if there’s a local legend I haven’t heard yet.
