Don’t miss out on this Magical October Event!

What started in 1980 as a Park Naturalist guided walk focused on the legends and lore related to nature has become the largest non-scary, two day Halloween event in Cincinnati with over 700 participants. Many of them have made this an annual tradition and bring 3 generations of family members to join the fun. What makes this event so special….

*Over 100 unique jack-o-lanterns that light the natural trail in the forest.  Some are carved to resemble animals while others bring out the humor in all of us. The view is quite magical!

*Participants meet costumed characters in the woods that share songs or stories that are interesting and engaging. The woodland wizard is hoping you might help him figure out the magical process found in green leaves, the Seasons are getting votes from families on their favorite season and get them to join in a sing-along, Bat lets you know he is more interested in bugs than you and Mr. Tree always appreciates a hug after sharing the tree-iffic resources he provides for us.

*All elements of the hike are deliberately non-scary and appropriate for families with young children ages 3 – 10.  Adults join in on the fun too!

Our Magic Forest Halloween Hikes are the weekend of October 21 and 22 from 7 – 9pm. The one hour long hikes leave every 5 minutes. Beyond 3 sets of steps, the natural trail is level and

moderately easy to walk. Fee: $6 per person. Children 2 and under are FREE.
