Looking for a way to enjoy the Tri-State area's harvest season?
In addition to apple and pumpkin picking, try one of the region's corn mazes. These homegrown labyrinths can range from simple child's play to frustratingly difficult.
Here are some of the mazes stumping guests this autumn:
- Winterbrook Farm, Thurmont, Md.
WHEN: Lawyer's Moonlight Maze is open Fridays, Saturday and Sundays, Sept. 17 through Oct. 30.
COST: $7; $5 for ages 6 to 12; free, children 5 and younger; pumpkin cannon is $5 for three shots.
MORE: For more information, hours and directions go to www.mazeplay.com or call 301-271-4826.
- Summers Farm, Frederick, Md.
The Summers family entertains crowds with a five-acre corn maze with two miles of curving paths and a "mystery phrase" that can only be deciphered by finding all the check points in the maze. There are also rope and mini mazes geared toward younger maze seekers.
