It will take 20 to 35 minutes to complete.

The Halloween walk has two sections — Spooky and Scary. The Spooky walk is suitable for all ages but the Scary section my not be good for children six years old and under. Those who do not wish to continue on to the second, Scary trail, can inform the gatekeeper and he will provide directions to the cocoa, cookies and exit.
