Haunted Gold Rush premieres Sunday, October 30 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on T+E during the channel’s “Halloweekend” programming event, happening October 28-31.
British Columbia’s Cariboo Gold Rush trail was a bustling, wild and often violent place in the 1800s. Today, the 650 km stretch of land is considered a hotspot for paranormal activity and has hundreds of stories of hauntings from more than a dozen locations. Ghost sightings along this trail are nothing new, but recently there have been numerous intense and dramatic reports. In the two-part documentary, the two sisters (Corine and Leanne) and their best friend (Kelly) have been called in to take an unprecedented road-trip and retrace British Columbia’s historic Gold Rush Trail, solving mysteries and witness hauntings along the way. Haunted Gold Rush features never-before-seen photos and video evidence of the suspected ghosts who haunt the historic towns within the trail.
