The Hippie Tree in Traverse City is located outside of the Old State Hospital Grounds.
It is a fallen willow tree that has managed to still grow trees from its fallen branches.
According to local lore, hippies (spiritualists) used to sit under the tree to meditate and then would paint their findings on the bark.
It is also rumored that the tree holds trapped spirits of those who died at the hospital.
A portal to hell can be opened by circling the tree in a certain manner.
