Turkey Mountain Urban Wilderness Area, 6850 S. Elwood Ave.
Turkey Mountain Haunted Trail is a trail (three-fourths of a mile long) full of twisted cedar, cobwebs, creepy crawly bugs and gnarled oaks. Guests will encounter live actors, fun special effects and ghastly scenes while walking the trail.
The experience is not recommended for children younger than 12, the faint of heart or those with mobility issues.
The trail will begin Friday, Oct. 23, and will continue from 7-11 nightly through Halloween. Tours last approximately 30 minutes and begin at Turkey Mountain’s main parking lot.
Trail guides will take groups of eight to 10 people at a time through 10-12 scare stations that, according to a news release, will “focus on creating an extremely eerie and spooky atmosphere rather than the blood and guts shock scaring” of indoor haunted houses.
Tour spaces are limited, and tickets should be purchased in advance at turkeymountainhauntedtrail.com. Tours are $7, plus service fees. All guests and staff must wear masks or face shields.
Youth tours (age 12 and younger) will take place from 6-7 p.m. Oct. 23 through Halloween. Parents can walk with children in a safe environment that is “almost scary” but is intended to create smiles instead of screams.
