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 45-minute hike, enjoy indoor activities and refreshments. Dress for the weather – this program goes on, rain or shine!
