Flanders Haunted Hikes – Unspeakable Tales of Old Woodbury

Flanders Nature Center and Land Trust is excited to announce the Flanders Haunted
Hikes are back!

The Haunted Hikes are taking place on Fridays, October 22 and 29 and
Saturdays, October 23 and 30 from 4PM to 8 PM on the Van Vleck Farm and Nature
Sanctuary. Every 13 minutes 13 souls go out into the woods to encounter the
unspeakable! Hermit Guides will take you across our fields and forests to experience
the folklore and legends of Woodbury.

Between 4:00 PM and 6:00 PM, join a family friendly hike for a not-so scary walk in the
woods. But, from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM, be a braver soul for a spine chilling walk in the
dark woods. The later walks are not recommended for children under 12 or the faint of

Hikes will last about 30 minutes. Please leave your flashlights at home and come
prepared for a night of adventure and dressed for the weather!

Cost is $7 per person. There will be seasonal refreshments available for purchase at the
end of the hike. For more information on this event and to purchase tickets, please visit
Flanders website at or call (203) 263-3711.
