Explore the forest after-dark with a brand-new spooky experience

New for 2024, this Halloween illuminated trail is filled with so many hidden surprises! Join your family and friends to wander from dusk into darkness at Moors Valley Country Park and Forest. But remember, the darker it gets, the spookier it gets…

Explore the forest to discover the secret cemetery hidden in the trees. People say that it’s haunted by a ghostly undertaker and surrounded by lost souls, woodland spirits and creaking coffins.

The spine-tingling mayhem continues among the tall creeping trees as you dodge thunderstorms, wicked witches, horrible highwaymen and larger-than-life spiders… and all the time, keep an eye out for those tree demons, they are always watching!

Along with bewitched burgers and Frankenstein’s fries, there’s a twist to the sweetest of treats on offer. Enjoy a fiendishly good hot toddy or devilishly decadent hot chocolate with someone special.*

Relaxed Session

This session is for adults and young people who would love to experience Halloween at Moors Valley without the usual high volumes of people. The session will begin at twilight before the illuminated trail opens to the public, making the transition into the dark much easier. This session will be held at 4pm on Monday 28 October.

The capacity of this session will be limited to ensure that the trail remains less crowded and more relaxed.
