2017 Edition of Halloween Haunts
Sat., Oct. 1921
6:30–8:30pm - Rain or Shine
Due to high traffic volumes in Whitnall Park,
we recommend accessing Wehr via Hwy 100 and College Ave for Halloween Haunts.
Please allow extra time to be at Wehr for your scheduled hike time!


Especially designed for families with children 4–10



Follow Night Travelers (our special guides) into the Enchanted Forest for a humorous, educational, and slightly spooky trek along a jack-o-lantern lit trail. Meet creepy characters who will teach you about our connection with nature's Halloween creatures. After your 35-minute hike, enjoy indoor activities and refreshments. Dress for the weather – this program goes on, rain or shine!

Volunteer opportunities available for characters, decorating, and pumpkin-carving
