Don't expect the fall fun to stop once you've exited the maze...if you've exited the maze. (Just kidding—you'll find your way out.)

We'll see you in the corn maze, friends...or will we?

Think you have what it takes to make it through the windy, twisty dead ends of the Kelder's Farm maze? Now is the time to try!

The Harbes family has taken over the North Fork with farms, an orchard, a vineyard—all brimming with fun outdoor activities. Come fall, its most notable family attractions are the mazes.

The Jamesport and Riverhead locations will have a fun new component that allows visitors to test their knowledge of Robin Hood while wandering through the paths.

The Outhouses started farming this land in the late 1800s, and while the name might have you do a double-take, the farm's mouthwatering selection of homemade doughnuts, fudge, pies and other goodies will completely satisfy your sweet tooth.

Lewin Farms takes pride in its annual corn maze designs. The original layout can be confusing, but it is well worth the challenge. It'll take nearly 30 minutes to complete the maze, and it's perfect for all age groups, so you'll definitely feel comfortable tagging along with the little ones. Although the farm notes that the kernels are not for eating, you can still snag some roasted corn from the farmstand!  


Why not spice up a favorite fall activity? F&W Schmitt's Family Farm has done just that. Its seven-acre maze, which is open on weekends and holidays, isn't your regular 'ol maze: Its theme is “Arabian Nights, Legend Of The Lamp.” Whether you want to race against your siblings or take your time wandering through, we guarantee you'll enjoy this autumn challenge on Long Island. (Reward yourself with a trip to the farmstand for cider and pies when you find your way out.) Catch all the fun at the Annual Fall Festival from Sept 19–Oct 31.
