[ARCHIVED] Prepare to be scared at the Hobgoblin Hikes!

Hobgoblin 2016 1

Hobgoblin Hikes to be held at Mammoth and Northmoreland Parks in 2022

The haunted Hobgoblin Hikes are just around the corner! The only free events of their kind in our area, these haunted walks are sponsored by Westmoreland County Parks and Recreation. The Hobgoblin Hikes alternate between four regional parks every year; in 2022, Hobgoblin Hikes will be offered only at Mammoth Park on Saturday, October 22, and at Northmoreland Park on Saturday, October 29. Hikes run continuously from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. rain or shine, and will only be cancelled due to dangerous and severe weather.

Recommended for ages eight and over, the Hobgoblin Hikes are half-mile guided outdoor walks through the haunted woods of the park.  Visitors can expect to be led through tunnels and cemeteries, and past more than 100 zombies, ghosts, and monsters. No two Hobgoblin Hikes are exactly the same and each park has unique haunted scenes.

The Hobgoblin Hikes are a safe family alternative to conventional trick-or-treating. Parents are encouraged to attend with their children.  Monetary donations are greatly appreciated!  

Volunteers ages 15 and over are needed to serve as trail guides or work at scare stations. There will be a volunteer meeting the Tuesday before each hike. Limited costumes and props will be available for loan. Please call (724) 830-3959 if you wish to volunteer your talents – group participation is highly encouraged! 

Mammoth Park is located in Mt. Pleasant Township, accessible via Greensburg-Mt. Pleasant Road and Routes 981 and 982. Northmoreland Park is located in Allegheny Township, accessible via Route 356 from Routes 66 and 56. 

If you’d like to volunteer, please attend one of our meetings or call (724) 830-3959. For more info, please call Westmoreland County Parks and Recreation at (724) 830-3950 or visit our website at
