‘Tis the season when the corn mazes and pumpkin patches are opening, and there’s nothing more fun in the fall than getting lost in a corn maze! Farmers have been carving their fields into fun and meaningful designs, all with the purpose of challenging you to make your way through.
Here are five local corn mazes you don’t want to miss. Be sure to check the farms’ websites before you visit because hours and events may change.
Spider Hall Farm, Prince Frederick: Prepare to be spooked: On weekend nights, you can go through Spider Hall Farm’s maze with a flashlight for “Twisty’s Twisted Corn Maze.” The maze is one part of the farm’s “Twisted Fields of Terror.” Twisted Fields of Terror is open from 7 to 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday nights in October. Cost for the maze is $15 person, or $35 for a combo ticket that includes the maze and other activities. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit http://www.twistedfieldsofterror.com/.
During the day, the ghosts go away, and the maze isn’t haunted. On Saturdays and Sundays, the farm is open for family fall fun from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Cost is $9 per person and includes the maze and other activities. Children three and under are free. Website: http://www.spiderhallfarm.com/.
Middleton’s Cedar Hill Farm, Waldorf: Cedar Hill Farm’s 2016 maze honors late Air Force Airman First Class Nathan McDavitt, who died in April 2016 while serving in the Middle East.

The 8-acre maze includes a QR code game, and a kiddie maze offers little ones a shorter path through the corn. Middleton’s Cedar Hill Farm is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays for fall fun. Cost is $10 per person and includes the mazes and other activities.
