This twisty, tricky corn maze in Livermore is one of the biggest in the area — and it's difficult enough to stump adults. It sprawls across six acres, with stalks rising 12ft tall, making an impressive design that even spells out the farm's name. Luckily, you’re not left to navigate the fields on your own: various stations among the rows offer clues to guide you in the right direction. When you get to the end, climb to the center of the bridge for a bird’s-eye view of the entire maze. Head here any time in October.
Everybody stay calm. It’s officially fall, and that means only one thing: Halloween season is finally here. Whatever your age, this is one of the silliest and most magical times of year, and the Bay Area knows how to do it properly, with pumpkin patches and corn mazes in abundance.
Here, you’ll find everything from massive mazes with impressive designs and towering stalks to more manageable ones for little’uns. You’ll find decorative gourds, pumpkin-spiced treats, and fields of cut corn to get lost in for hours and hours. Whatever your skill set, here are the best corn mazes in the Bay Area right now, open throughout October. Happy exploring.
