NH corn mazes are fun, unique way to spend a fall day

View a list of the best corn mazes in New Hampshire

Autumn in New Hampshire is a special and beautiful time of year filled with apple and pumpkin picking as well as foliage, haunted houses, and corn mazes.

You’ve probably taken a foliage drive, went apple or pumpkin picking and even checked out a haunted house, but has your family ever visited a corn maze?

Corn mazes are exactly as they sound…a maze, or labyrinth, made out of corn stalks. Acres upon acres of corn are planted each spring and summer and then paths are cut creating unique designs. And these corn mazes aren’t simple twists and turns, they’re truly pieces of artwork. From dragonflies to turkeys and from moose to NH landmarks, there are always a wide variety of maze designs.

Many local corn mazes are open for visitors the last weekend in August or the first weekend in September, but be sure to click on the links below to visit the websites for complete details, directions and information. Some of our favorites are below so be sure to make them a part of your fall traditions!

(Corn mazes are listed in alpha order and not in any particular preference order.)
