Haunted Hike at Creasey Mahan Nature Preserve

Creasey Mahan’s Haunted Hike is almost here and we think it’s the perfect way to kick off your family’s Halloween festivities!

We enjoy this early October Halloween event because it allows our family to enjoy outdoor fun on a beautiful Nature Preserve.  The kids get a perfect amount of treats along the trails, love playing on the hay, and exploring the grounds.

Get your costumes ready for lots of fun around the Nature Preserve.  The 2023 date is set for Sunday, October 1st from 3-7pm. There is an admission fee of $8 for all visitors (Free for children 2 and under).  The admission fee allows visitors to enjoy several activities:

  • Mile long Fantasy Trail through the Preserve’s forest.  This includes treats along the fun walk that in previous years included a princess castle, children’s favorite characters, a train for kids to sit in and other fun sites. 18 candy stops!
  • Harvest Hay Village where several large haystacks are creatively painted as Halloween themed creatures and characters.
  • Face painting 
  • Inflatable zone (new, no separate fee this year)

Food trucks will also be at the event.  Be sure to go check out the new Forest Friends playground during your visit, too! The rain date is set for October 8th.

Creasey Mahan Nature Preserve is located at 12501 Harmony Landing Road in Goshen. You can pre-purchase tickets here.
