Hobgoblin Hikes

Recommended for ages eight and over, the Hobgoblin Hikes are half-mile outdoor guided walks through the haunted woods of our County Parks. Visitors can expect to be led through mazes and cemeteries, and past more than 100 ghouls, goblins and monsters. The events are FREE and will be held regardless of weather conditions. The Hobgoblin Hikes are offered to provide a safe, family alternative to conventional trick-or-treating. Although no candy or treats will be handed out, visitors can still dress in costume. Parents are encouraged to attend the events with their children.

The Hobgoblin Hikes are offered in alternating parks each year; hikes will only be held at Northmoreland and Mammoth Parks in 2024.

Want to Volunteer?

Volunteers ages 15 and over (anyone under 15 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian during the hike) are needed to dress in costume and man the “scare stations” created along the Hobgoblin Hike Trail. Trail guides are also needed to lead visitors through the hike. Group participation is welcomed and encouraged!

If all group members cannot attend the volunteer meeting held the week before each hike, please send a few representatives. Limited costuming materials such as capes, masks, and accessories will be available for loan, but bring your own if you wish!

There will be a party after each hike with refreshments for volunteers. Please e-mail us or call 724-830-3968 if you would like to help out!
