Hudson Valley Corn Mazes



Local farms offer corn mazes, hayrides and more family fun this October

corn maze, family fun

All summer long we have seen the local farms plant the corn fields and have watched the corn grow way over our heads and now it's time to enjoy. There is something truly exhilarating or kids (and some adults too) for getting lost in a field of corn and finding your way out. Some local corn mazes offer a quick run through while others add cool features like scavenger hunting, smart phone interaction or haunted attractions or the older teens and adults. Check the list below to find a corn maze for your family this fall to enjoy.


(Please call the farm to make sure their corn maze is up and running when you plan to go)
