Looking for a local pumpkin patch, corn maze, hayride, gourds and other
Halloween activities in Southwest Colorado? Scroll down this page and you will see the
all of those in Southwest Colorado, sorted by county. Some are
farms, where you take a hay ride out into the field, others are elaborate farm
stands with mountains of pumpkins and other activities and some are simple
roadside stands. Most have loads of pumpkins to choose from. To really make it
fun for your kids, look for those that have the extra activities, like a corn
maze, spook house, or hayride. There is usually a small fee for the mazes (of
course, the more elaborate mazes tend to charge more. Hayrides are often free.

A visitor writes on
September 21, 2013: "They have the biggest corn maze in town
that is 10 acres and pumpkin patch of 5 acres. A pinto bean sandbox
for the kids, haystacks to climb on, and lot of good photo ops for
family holiday cards. Me and my family enjoyed the fun and friendly
staff. We most liked the corn maze and the kids were better at going
through it than me and my wife. We each got a pumpkin to take home
and carve. We had been watching the pumpkins grow all summer and
look forward to returning this October in 2013"
