Curious about local night life? Wonder who’s tiptoeing through the treetops? Who’s crunching in the compost? If your kids like to pretend and they think night creatures are cool, then they'll love Nearby Nature’s 17th annual Haunted Hike in Alton Baker Park!
At this fun, family-oriented event, Nearby Nature guides will lead special night hikes along a festive pumpkin-lit trail through the Alton Baker Park woods. On each hike, folks will encounter all sorts of furry and feathered creatures of the night in costume, from a gigantic bat to a sneaky spider.
Back at the decorated picnic shelter, folks will have a hooting, howling good time creating creepy crafts and gobbling up tricky treats. There will also be a great raffle of goods and services donated by generous local businesses.
Haunted Hike is free for Nearby Nature members and $5 per person for non-members. Groups are welcome. Pre-registration is required so be sure to call Nearby Nature soon at 541-687-9699 to reserve your space. Each hike lasts about an hour and folks are welcome to come early or stay after their scheduled hikes to enjoy the festivities. The hike is most appropriate for pre-school through elementary-aged kids, but adults love it too! The first hike goes out at 5:40 and the last at 7:40.
Be sure to bring a flashlight, your hiking shoes, and your raingear if it’s a dark and stormy night. Haunted Hike happens rain or moonshine.
For more information or to register, please call Nearby Nature at 541-687-9699.
