Scare Up Halloween Fun at Dos Picos Park

Armed with just flashlights, our fearless hikers hit the trail under a night sky to brave the cobwebs, spiders and … wait! What was that sound?

They made it back out but will you? Hit the Haunted Trail at Dos Picos County Park starting this weekend and find out.

County Parks is bringing back the Haunted Trail for some family-friendly Halloween fun on Saturday, Oct. 10 and Saturday, Oct. 17. The hike starts at 6:30 p.m. and lasts until about 8:30.

Bring your own flashlight, wear sturdy shoes and come in costume. Who knows? Maybe you’ll be the scary creature on the trail!

The park is located at 17953 Dos Picos Park Road in Ramona. The guided trail hike is free and open to all ages but children must be accompanied by an adult.

A $3 parking fee applies to all vehicles inside the park and is used to support ongoing park maintenance and programs.

For more information on the Haunted Trail event, call (760) 789-2220.
