In “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone,” Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry headmaster Albus Dumbledore tells the students during their first-day dinner that the forest on the grounds is forbidden. With a number of temperamental magical beings — centaurs, unicorns, huge spiders — roaming those woods, the warning was probably a good idea.

Meanwhile, people are clamoring to go explore a “forbidden forest” just over the Frederick County line at Morven Park in Leesburg, Virginia.
