Event Details

The Haunted Woods is an annual event hosted by the Salt Lake City area Exchange Clubs.  All proceeds from the event go towards the fight against child and domestic abuse in Utah.  Together with the city of Murray and a team of big-hearted volunteers, The Haunted Woods delights visitors of all ages while contributing to a very important cause in our community.  We can't wait to see you at our next event.  Thank you for your support.

Dates & Times



The not-scary, kid-friendly "Silly Trail" will run from 6:00-6:30 each night.  Then, from 6:30-9:00 each night we present our "Spooky Trail" for our brave, thrill-seeking guests.  Please allow us a few minutes between 6:30-6:35 pm to change trail themes.



$5.00 entry for all guests.

Kids 3 and under are FREE. 

Proceeds benefit the Exchange Club of Murray in their fight against child abuse and domestic violence in Utah.

We have changed our ticketing system to timed ticketing reservations. We now have a limited number of tickets available for each half hour time slot, so your wait time in line will be much less than usual. Time slots will sell out.


Family Friendly


We take pride in being Utah's only family friendly haunted attraction.  We do not allow graphic violence, foul language, or demonic beings. 

Choose between two different trails!  The "Silly Trail" (6:00-6:30 each night) is our fun, scare-free trail that's safe for all ages.  The "Spooky Trail" (6:30-9:00 each night) is meant to frighten guests that enjoy the many thrills of the Halloween season.  Which will you choose?

And remember, if your child gets too scared at anytime on either trail, all they have to do is yell "GHOULS BE GONE."  When our volunteers hear that, they know to instantly tone it down and make it fun and not-scary for your group.  We want to make sure that EVERYONE in your group has a great time.

Sweet Treats


Whether you chose the spooky trail or the silly trail, treat yourself to a sweet treat at the end of your adventure.

Every paid admission ticket includes a a cup of hot chocolate and a serving of freshly popped buttered popcorn.  As a COVID-19 precaution, our friends at HEY SODA will be on site to provide these delicious treats at the end of your Haunted Woods journey.

It's the perfect way to end an evening of fun with family and friends this Halloween season.



We work very hard at our event to make sure that EVERYONE is welcome and able to enjoy themselves.  When it comes to trails through the woods, we devote a significant portion of our preparation time to making sure the trails are both wide and smooth. 


We've had strollers and manually-pushed wheelchairs make it through successfully in years past.  But, no matter how hard we try, we're still working in a forest full of trees with complex root systems.  As the result, we cannot make any guarantees for wheelchair or stroller accessibility.

If you are interested in previewing the trail and the terrain before our event begins, please go to our CONTACT US page and email us to see if we can make special arrangements.


Volunteers Needed

Whether you're part of a group, or want to simply volunteer on your own, we need you!  To pull off this kind of event successfully, we depend on our incredible team of volunteers.  From the scariest monster, to the friendliest ticket taker, we need volunteers of every kind.  We invite you join us.  Note that all volunteers must be age 15 or older.
