The annual 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 and will only be cancelled due to dangerous and severe weather. The Hobgoblin Hikes alternate between four regional parks every year. This year Hobgoblin Hikes will be offered at Northmoreland Park on Saturday, October 19, and at Mammoth Park on Saturday, October 26. Hikes run continuously from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
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! Food and drink will be available for sale at the end of the trail.
Volunteers ages 15 and over are needed to serve as trail guides or work at scare stations. There will be a volunteer meeting the week before each hike. Limited costumes and props will be available for loan if you wish. Please call (724) 830-3959 if you wish to volunteer your talents – group participation is highly encouraged!
