Northmoreland Park in Apollo is host to a haunted Hobgoblin Hike on Saturday, Oct. 21 from 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
Recommended for ages 8 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 cemetaries, 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. Parents are encouraged to attend the events with their children.
Northmoreland Park is located in Allegheny Township and is accessible via State Route 356 from State Routes 56, 66 and 28. For more information, please contact Westmoreland County Parks and Recreation at (724) 830-3950.
Volunteers ages 15 and over 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!
Please plan on attending the orientation meeting which will be scheduled the Tuesday prior to each hike at 7:00 p.m. If all group members cannot attend the meeting, 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 724-830-3959 if you would like to help out!
