Preparations are ongoing for the West Linn Parks and Recreation’s third annual Haunted Trail at Mary S. Young State Park on Oct. 25 and Oct.26.

A wander through the woods at night is sure to give you cause to fright. It has been rumored that many unexplained things happen at night in the park. One neighbor was quoted: “The sounds that drift through the park late at night make one wonder what horrible things might have happened in years past.”

Along with the Trail of Terror (recommended for kids 10 and older), the Enchanted themed trail is a great option for those younger. The event also includes onsite games and concessions by the West Linn Rotary. Pre-purchased tickets allow you to access the prepaid line at the event. The fee for the Haunted Trail is also payable at trail entrance. Visit westlinnoregon.gov/parksrec for more details.

Donated items are being accepted for the Haunted Trail. Do you have an ornate dining table or chairs, an unused organ, working or not? These and other items are sought for new scenes along the trail.
