The newest & scariest haunted attraction … located deep in the woods of northern Harford County.

The attraction features a 1.2 mile walking trail through the woods crawling with ghosts, zombies, and more. This is fear like you’ve never experienced! For those that dare go, the trail is open Friday & Saturday nights the last three weekends of October. Also enjoy free onsite parking, haunted hay ride, live bands, and plenty to eat & drink.

Younger children are encouraged to join us for Little Haunts Sundays from 2-6 pm, offering a fun and spook-free time, including trick-o-treating on the trail, games, crafts, pumpkin painting, costume contest, moon bounce, a hay maze, and more.

All proceeds go to support Boys & Girls Clubs of Harford County.
