Pre-Registration required to attend our annual Goblin Walks event.  Every 15 minutes a group of twenty five people head down the trail to enjoy an evening autumn color tour, a 1/2 mile trail walk meeting larger than life critters performing entertaining educational skits. The program is about one hour in length.  Photo opportunities, refreshments (cider & donuts!), and visit the gift shop.  Feel free to dress in costume and be ready for the weather!  The event operates rain or shine.  It’s great fun for the whole family!!

REGISTRATION REQUIRED for Dahlem members and non-members, so don’t wait – choice slots fill fast.  Please arrive 10 minutes before your tour walk to allow time to sign in.

Cancellation Policy: We have a 24 hour cancellation policy. If you don’t call to cancel and don’t show, you will be charged the full amount.
