Don’t Be Outfoxed This Fall at the Corn Mazes in Lee, New Hampshire
"Don’t be outfoxed."
That’s the message at Coppal House Farm in Lee as visitors eager to get a jump on the fall season wind their way through the farm’s two fox-themed corn mazes.
The farm at 118 North River Road (Route 155) has been offering corn mazes for 17 years with help from Precision Mazes, a husband and wife team from Missouri hired to design and cut the mazes, which takes about three hours using a GPS system.
This year features the 5 ½-acre “Red Fox Maze” and the “Fox Den Maze,” which is about an acre.
The corn maze opened Labor Day weekend and runs through Oct. 31. The hours are Monday, Thursday and Friday from 12 to 5 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The first night maze is planned for this Saturday, Sept. 18. Additional night mazes will be held on Oct. 9 and Oct. 23.
Tickets for night mazes are available online only.
“This weekend is going to be gorgeous. The weather looks beautiful and it’s almost a full moon so people probably won’t even need their flashlights. It’ll be bright enough so they can find their way through in the dark,” said Hannah Bendroth, a farm manager and niece of owners John and Carol Hutton.
While the mazes can be a little tricky, Bendroth said no one’s ever been lost.
The farm has staff on hand to check the mazes to make sure people are finding their way through.
They also keep an eye on the parking lot to see if any vehicles have been hanging around for too long - a sign that a visitor could be stuck in the maze.
This year’s mazes feature a scavenger hunt with four different kinds of foxes. If someone finds one of the images, they can take a selfie photo with it, and if they locate all four by the end they can show them to staff and be entered into a drawing for a free sleigh ride at the farm this winter.
The farm also offers private corn maze rentals for groups.
