Halloween Pumpkin Walk

Please join us on Friday October 12th from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm in partnership with the Moultonborough Recreation Department and the Castle in the Clouds for an event not to be missed! Bring your family and friends to enjoy a friendly Halloween themed stroll through the woods on the Shannon Pond Trail at Castle in the Clouds! This hike is self-guided so you can walk to your leisure and even do the trail more than once if you like. The trail will be marked with lighted jack o lanterns and be sure to look for some not so scary Halloween surprises along the way! It is recommended that you bring headlamps or flashlights to help you find your way. Costumes are encouraged! Please note: This is a child and family friendly event. The Halloween decorations and surprises will not be scary or gory. This will not be a “haunted” walk. Reservations are not required.


Prepare for the Trail

The proposed hiking trail is easy, family friendly and less than a mile. Wear weather appropriate clothing and footwear underneath your Halloween costume for this fun adventure! Feel free to bring a flashlight or headlamp as it will be dark on the property. This is a great way to get the family out for some good old fresh air and Halloween fun!

Stay for Treats!

After the hike warm up by a fire pit and enjoy hot cocoa, and goodies, compliments of Castle in the Clouds, the Moultonborough Recreation Department, and the Lakes Region Conservation Trust.
This free event is open to the public. Donations are appreciated to help us continue to provide programs similar to this in the future.


Remember to use Ossipee Park Road. Park in hiker parking located across from the entrance to the bottling plant, or in our main parking lot and hike to Shannon Pond to begin your Halloween Hiking Adventure!
