Breinigsville- Grim’s Fall Festival
More than likely the BEST paths in a corn maze in the area! Flat, wide, well drained, little to no debris! You could easily bring a stroller or even a wheelchair into this maze! There IS a bridge in the maze this year, but it is NOT necessary to cross it in order to exit the maze-so as I said it is wheelchair accessible! We went in the evening for a flashlight maze and it was super fun since you don't also have to hold a map for this maze and the trails do not have many tripping hazards. HIGHLY recommended maze for everyone!
Well, 2013's maze was short, but had enough twists and turns that I thought it was interesting. 2014's maze is shorter and VERY unimaginative. The checkpoints in the maze are strangely placed so that there are some close together and other large areas with no checkpoints (which gets frustrating). The terrain isnt bad, some minor debris. All in all, i was sad to see this maze become less exciting. It might be good for people who are lazy, directionally impaired, or have very small kids. If you DO visit this maze, Huntsicker's Grove Park is nearby and has beautiful fall colors! Take a stroll there and enjoy!

Paths here are moderate in just about every aspect. There is a moderate amount of debris (rocks and pieces of corn stalks), but there are a large number of small hills all over. The hills and debris would make using a wheeled device harder than a flatter/cleaner maze. There is also a fair amount of green growth in this maze that can be slippery when wet, or cause tangles for your feet, waling stick, or wheels. Nice part is that its difficult to get completely lost in this maze as then exit and entrance are in the same place. It IS a large maze and for us finding all the checkpoints was exhausting. We DID find them all though!
Easton PA-Raub Farm
This location has what I consider the most difficult to walk on type of paths. They engage in a practice to reduce erosion and mud by leaving the paths strewn with downed corn stalks. This means you must lift your feet quite high to avoid getting your shoes caught with each step (you use a marching type step). If you are unsteady on your feet, this is the easiest type of maze to trip in, so I highly recommend using a walking stick (with the understanding that the walking stick can also get caught in the debris). Frankly, I'd rather deal with mud-but it is a good workout!
Bath-Unangst Tree Farm
We went to this maze for the first time this year and really enjoyed it! The maze design was well done, created challenge without being overwhelming. There was an option to play a game of clue, however the boy that explained it didn't do so clearly, and we were frustrated by that once in the maze. The paths were wide and flat, and fairly clear-not as good as Grim's but close! One caution-you MUST ride the haywagon to get to the maze, and the haybales that you sit on WILL poke you in the legs and butt if you wear thin pants. I wore athletic pants and was sorry I did!
Boyertown PA-Wilcox Farm
One word-ROCKS! This is probably the corn maze with the most rocks in the area! They obviously can be tripping hazards and make transit with anything with wheels nearly impossible! There is also a fair amount of small pieces of corn stalks, not sure if that was intentional to help keep mud and erosion down or if they just fell there. They are also tripping hazards, although it isn't as bad as the ones at Raub. The rocks are the real problem. We went near dusk and in the light this is a fun maze! If you get to all the checkpoints you can enter a drawing for $100! When it got dark enough to need a flashlight, then the paths become much harder to navigate, to the point where it isnt nearly as fun. Like Raub it is a good workout!
VERY well maintained paths! No debris whatsoever (not even rocks!). Paths are also flat and well drained! You could use a stroller on them-however there is a bridge near the end of the maze that you MUST cross to exit, so make sure your stroller is light enough to carry up about 8-10 steps and then back down again! Maze was about medium length, so we went around twice.
1h 2min-Morgantown PA-Mast Farms
Moderately decent paths, some maintenance is clear, but there certainly are tripping hazards around. Considering that this is one of the more expensive mazes on the list, I'd expect better paths/maintenance. Please note that when you are facing the maze entrances, the shortest maze is farthest to the left and the longest is farthest to your right. No one explains that when paying and there is no one around the maze entrances to explain it either. If you hold the map they give you upside down, it will be oriented correctly from the starting point.
