Posted By on Thu, Sep 4, 2014 at 9:00 PM

PERCY FARM CORN MAZE
  • Percy Farm Corn Maze
If you like getting lost, read on to learn about a quintessential Vermont fall activity: the corn maze. 

The Great Vermont Corn Maze, Danville
This maze, on a third-generation dairy farm, has a new design every year. Situated on 10 acres, it's a serious challenge; visitors should be able to walk for about an hour, without a rest, to find their way out. If you'd prefer something less intense, try the smaller maze on the property.

$10 for children ages 5-15 and seniors ages 60 and over; $15 for ages 16-59; and free for children under 5. Farm animals, 100 feet of underground tunnels, barnyard golf and a kids village are all free with admission to the mazes. Popcorn, ice cream and beverages are available to purchase. Open 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; visitors cannot enter the big maze after 3 p.m.

Through October 17. Info, 748-1399.

Hathaway Farm Corn Maze, Rutland
The theme of this year's 12-acre corn maze — which features a built-in sound system and a series of bridges — is "I've Got the Music in Me." Toddlers can explore a mini maze and an OK Corral play area and livestock barn with donkeys, bunnies and pigs. On Saturdays, the maze is open late and admission includes a glow stick and marshmallow roasting.

$10 for ages 4-11; $12 for ages 12 and up; $10 for seniors over age 65; and free for children under 4. Open 10 a.m.-5 p.m. on Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday; 10 a.m.-9 p.m. on Saturday; and closed Tuesday.

Through October 26. Info, 775-2624.

Sam Mazza's Corn Maze, Colchester
Visitors can take a one- or two-mile jaunt through seven-foot walls of corn, tracking their progress by punching a card at numbered stations scattered throughout the course. Don't miss the farm market, animals and a few wooden play structures also on the premises.

$8 for adults, $5 for children and free for kids under 3. Open 10 a.m-6 p.m. on Monday through Saturday and 10 a.m.-5 p.m. on Sunday. No maze tickets are sold within an hour of closing.
 
Through October 31. Info, 655-3440.

Percy Farm Corn Maze, Stowe
The maze takes approximately one hour to complete. Visitors can pet and feed baby calves and goats, as well.  

$6 for adults, $3 for students and seniors and free for children under 8 and members of the armed services. Open 11 a.m.- 5 p.m. seven days a week.  

Through mid-October. Info, 371-9999.  

A Corn Maze Adventure
, Fort Ticonderoga, New York
Visitors navigate this six-acre maze, designed in the shape of the Fort, looking for history clues and collecting stamps. A short maze for children age 4 and under, with adult supervision, provides an easier option.

Free with $8-$17.50 admission to the fort; free for children under 5. Open weekends, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Last entry is at 4:30 p.m.
