Halloween Hikes

Fridays and Saturdays

A Family Event you won’t want to miss!

If you are searching for a unique Halloween adventure, we have the program for you. Take your child on a well-lit hike through the forest to meet woodland creatures and hear about their lives.

It’s the perfect non-scary alternative to traditional Halloween events
and a VERY important fundraiser for CNC in it’s 32nd year!

The Hike

Experience the mystery of a guided night hike! Each group of 20 – 25 people will have a guide lead them on a lighted trail. Meet costumed characters including everyone’s favorites, the Box Turtle and Dragonfly during your ~45-minute hike.

World Music

Drum, dance and play along to world music!
