Spooky Trail

Spooky Trail Slider

A memorable, but not-too-scary-for-kids event. Come Downtown for trick-or-treating on Main Street from 4:00-5:00 PM, ghost tours by the Mt. Airy Arts Alliance, hay rides, kids activities and much more! The activities start in the railyard, meanders down the transformed Rails to Trails complete with special effects and ends with crafts in Watkins Park.  Spooky Trail will begin at dusk. Free shuttle will bring you back from Watkins Park back to the railyard.

Parking available in the municipal lot and Watkins Park.  There will be two shuttles that will take groups from Watkins to the Rail Yard and back from 5-8:00 PM.  If you park at Watkins from 4-5:00 PM, you will need to walk to the back part of the park to Church Street and turn left down Main Street to get to Spooky Trail.  That path is well-lit, but you may want to bring a flashlight anyway if walking in the dark.

Spooky Trail will be one-way only from the rail yard to Watkins, so there will be a shuttle available to take you from Watkins to the rail yard.

Spooky Trail is a 1/3 mile gravel trail that connects Main Street to Watkins Park.  Strollers are permitted, but ones with larger wheels are recommended. We also recommend comfortable shoes.

Wear your costumes and bring your goody bags (and flashlights)!

Volunteer Opportunity!

We are also looking for High School Student Volunteers (especially those with drama experience)!  

Dress up and 'scare' or guide visitors on the Spooky Trail. OCT 26th from 5-8pm (Students would need to arrive by 4 pm to begin preparing and receive their instructions for the night. They should expect to be done 30 minutes to an hour after the trail closes.)
What they get in return: Community Service Hours, and a Free Pizza dinner.
