Eliada Corn Maze
September 5-October 26, 2014
Thursday 9 AM-4 PM
Friday-Sunday, 10 AM-8 PM
Get lost in Western North Carolina's largest corn maze this fall with 12 acres of twisting trails at the Eliada Homes campus. Have fun while raising money to help care for children! They are just four miles west of downtown Asheville in a scenic valley surrounded by mountains. See directions at bottom.
Named one of the top 12 corn mazes in the country, the event brings over 20,000 visitors annually to the Eliada’s century-old campus. There's four miles of trails in the maze!
Each person trying the maze receives a map. The map shows numbered checkpoint stations set up within the maze. When you reach a checkpoint, you punch that location so you know where you’ve been. The checkpoint system is an easy way to progress through the maze, and no one’s gotten lost yet!
Other popular attractions there include the hay ride, pumpkin patch, and corn cannons.
