Bozeman Maze

Where: 1340 E Valley Center Rd, Bozeman
When: September 24 - October 31

Five thousand hay bales turn into a winding, twisting maze trapping even the craftiest explorers in its dead-end turns each year. Spend the afternoon at the ranch with hayrides, a kid’s train, a power-jump bungee trampoline, and concessions. 


Montana Corn Maze 

Where: 4605 W Cameron Bridge Rd, Manhattan
When: September 18 - October 30

In the fields of Manhattan, Montana, the Montana Corn Maze offers three different levels of challenge! Adults and older kids can utilize trikes to get through the cornstalk-lined aisles. Plus, they have disc golf, a miniature golf course, corn hole, sandboxes and a playground, a barrel train for kids, a farmer’s market, and Dutch oven cooking! 


Gallatin Valley Botanical Pumpkin Patch

Where: ROcky Creek Farm, Bozeman
When: September 24 - October 31

This fall pumpkin patch at Rocky Creek Farm has hundreds of pumpkins to choose from (plus a hayride to and from the patch)! Plus, while you’re there, visit the farm stand, open a few days a week selling certified organic vegetables, cut flowers, eggs, and pasture-raised meats. It’s a great way to show kids a local farm carrying on time-loved traditions.
