Fall in New Hampshire is filled with pumpkins, apple picking, foliage drives, haunted houses and maybe even the occasional cider donut from your local farm store. It’s also the time of year to visit a corn maze, so we have rounded up a few of our favorites. Many of the farms listed also offer additional family activities like farm animals, “night mazes” and more. Visit the individual maze websites for times and rates.

Beech Hill Farm

107 Beech Hill Rd., Hopkinton

This year’s corn maze is an 8-acre field split into two mazes, and the themes are “Clue-Dunnit?” and “250th Anniversary.” Each maze takes about 40 minutes to complete. Once you finish, make sure you reward yourself with some ice cream or by visiting some of the Beech Hill Farm animals.

Coppal House Farm

118 North River Road, Lee

Surround yourself with 8- to 9-foot stalks of corn as you journey your way through a fox-shaped maze. As you progress through your walk, you will find mailboxes to help guide your path. Each mailbox holds a trivia question about the corn maze theme that will help you find your way around. Close out your expedition with a visit to the farmstand where you can peruse the farm’s pumpkins, winter squashes, eggs, culinary oils and more. If you’re feeling really adventurous, then don’t miss the Flashlight Night Maze.

Scamman Farm

69 Portsmouth Ave., Stratham

Visitors are invited to explore over 6 acres of 12-foot-high twists and turns at Scamman Farm. Each year there is a new game within the maze to add to the fun and encourage mazegoers to cover all of the possible paths. If you’re in the mood to be spooked, then don’t miss special Night Mazes throughout October.

Riverview Farm

141 River Rd., Plainfield

Puns aside, each year’s maze at Riverview Farm is its own work of art. It is fun for all ages because each year there is a new design, theme and story that goes along with the theme with clues and characters. This year’s maze theme is “Monsters of New England.”

Beans and Greens Farm

245 Intervale Road, Gilford

This family-owned and operated farm prides itself in offering one of New Hampshire’s most difficult corn mazes. Their multiacre “behemoth” includes miles of turns, dead ends, loops, open squares and bridges. Not only do they offer Friday and Saturday Spooky Night Mazes, but they also have plenty of fresh produce, flowers and a pumpkin patch for everyone in your family to enjoy.

Sherman Farm

2679 East Conway Road Center Conway

You’ll love spending the day at this 12-acre, four-generation family farm. The Sherman Farm Corn Maize is more than just a maize though, it’s filled with games and riddles within the maize to keep your kids giggling and busy.
