Take a hike through the dark trails of Riverview Tree Farm! Hear stories of our historical past of tragedy, hardship, and woe. It has been said that the spirits of those grievous souls still wander through the trees and in the river valley below, searching for peace. Sadly, they never found what they were looking for. The horrors that tormented them in life, seemed to follow them to death. Come experience the haunted trail for yourself and see what lurks behind every deep, dark corner. . . if you dare. 

Most of our scarers are volunteers from our community. Funds from the Haunted Trail are donated to the local Canton High School drama club and FFA club. 

Frequently Asked Questions

How old do you have to be to go through the trail?

Kids 10 and under: We leave the decision up to the parent or guardian, but after dark, the trail may be too scary for young kids. We recommend coming right away when the Haunted Trail opens as it is still light out. The experience will be less scary at that time. 

How difficult is the trail to walk through?

The trail goes through the tree farm and down in the river bottom. Depending on flooding issues, the trail may be moved to ensure safety for all guests. There are natural obstacles throughout the path that may require guests to step over. The path may require guests to climb up or down small hills or slopes. 

How should I dress?

We recommend that each guest wear tennis shoes appropriate outerwear. Like any fall night, the temperature cools off. Plan ahead so you're not cold. 

How do we know where to walk?

Each group is led by a guide, who will share the story of the haunted happenings and will make sure that each guest makes it safely through the trail. They will point out obstacles in the path and show guests where to go.

We hope to see you there!
