You hike in Malibu for the ocean views, and you trek through Griffith Park to get your hippie fix, but where to go when you want to see a ghost train? Corralitas Red Car Property sits on land formerly part of the Pacific Electric Streetcar line, which cut through Silver Lake on its way to Glendale, until it was decommissioned in 1955. Bordered on both sides by the skeletons of abandoned cars and old machinery, the public trail near the old rail is as creepy as it is cool. Relics of the big red cars are still visible: Heavy stones mark the spot where a massive bridge once stood, and you can see the steps where riders lined up to board. Wild flora block the sound of city traffic, making it that much easier to hear disgruntled spirits grumbling as they wait for the next train to arrive. 2400 Corralitas Drive, Silver Lake; redcarproperty.blogspot.com.
