We're back!!!! This Halloween, for two nights only, the beautiful, moonlit, paths of Lapham Peak State Park are riddled with ghosts and goblins. Proceeds benefit the Friends of Lapham Peak. Enjoy this annual local tradition and walk the haunted trails, if you dare!

Fright Hike is intended to be a fun but scary experience and is not recommended for very young children. Parents, use your own discretion when bringing younger children.

Approximately 4,000 hikers attend every year.

The hike is about 1 mile of rolling forest trails that takes approximately 45 minutes to complete. The trails wind through the woods over roots, mulch, and rocks; strollers and wheelchairs are not recommended.

Concessions will be available; credit cards will be accepted.
