One of the most popular and eagerly awaited attractions of autumn is now open weekends at Maybury Farm in Northville.
The annual Corn Maze at the farm will continue to welcome visitors every weekend through Oct. 24 to the 9-acre maze newly-designed by the Ford Volunteer Corp. This year, the attraction also includes a scavenger hunt, and there is a 1-acre Mini Maze for those less adventurous members of the family.
Walking the entire 10-acre maze should take about an hour, Maybury officials said, while the mini maze can be completed in about 20 minutes.
For those seeking more of a challenge, the maze will remain open until 9 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, with the last wagon-ride leaving an hour before closing. That allows the bravest to attempt to traverse the maze in the dark. The maze is open until 7 p.m. on Sundays with the last wagon leaving at 6 p.m.
The Maybury Farm General Store will also be open offering fresh cider and donuts, along with other treats available to purchase.
Reservations for parties of 25 or more to attempt the maze are available for Tuesday-Thursday evenings. Call (248) 374-0200 to reserve a date. The farm also offers bonfires that are available for those private parties.
The Maybury Farm Corn Maze is open from 6-9 p.m. on Fridays, from 10 a.m. until 9 p.m. on Saturdays and from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. on Sundays.
Admission to the corn maze is $13 per person and includes a tractor-drawn wagon ride out to the maze. The last wagon ride leaves one-hour before closing each day.
Children younger than 2 are admitted at no cost with an adult paid admission.
