Corn is good for more than shucking and eating.
It’s great for getting lost and found.
Every year, corn mazes get more and more fun, creative and complicated.
Here are a few worth a drive to check out:
Stony Hill Maze Fun Park in Chester: This year, the folks at Stony Hill had a bright idea for the 10-acre maze: The Age of Edison. Celebrate the New Jersey inventor’s life and creations while winding your way through the paths lined with fresh Jersey corn.
The Amazing Maze Maize in Floral Park, New York: Who knew there was a corn maze in New York City? This three-acre interactive maze at the Queens County Farm Museum features a moonlight event two Saturday nights in October.
Fort Ticonderoga’s Heroic Maze in Fort Ticonderoga, New York: On the shores of Lake Champlain, explore the Captain A Ship Maze Quest and the eight stations representing a component of an 18th-century fort. There’s also a kiddie maze for those not ready to tackle the big maze.
Great Vermont Corn Maze in Danville, Vermont: This is for the adventurous and fit. The Big Maze covers 24 acres and is approximately a two-plus hour hike over three miles of dirt trails lined with 10-foot- tall walls of corn.
