Face the forest’s natural dangers and more in Chattanooga’s naturally terrifying haunted attraction! Featuring an all new cast of characters and surprises, the 2019 Haunt Trail is haunted by a host of terrors you won’t see anywhere else.

The Acres of Darkness is fun for the entire family with activities and entertainment for all ages. Play it safe on the kiddie trail or brave our Haunted Forest Trail if you dare. A family area includes a hayride, kid’s activities, a black light maze, and inflatables. Enjoy a s’more and a cup of cocoa by the bonfire or journey to the depths of the forest for the fright of your life.

All proceeds benefit the environmental conservation and education programs of the Chattanooga Audubon Society.
