Good corn mazes?

corn maze pathWith an eye to the season, MattW emails:

Where are the area's best corn mazes?
I'm looking for a challenging, elaborate, whimsical, no child's play corn maze in the area.

Got a suggestion for MattW? Please share!

The Friday and Saturday Nights in October are Harvest Haunt Nights at Liberty Ridge Farm. That is a nice Corn Maze. And skulls.

Bunch of photos I took last year to give you an idea (it was pretty dark as you can imagine). Bring a lot of sweaters, it really really gets cold and the line is long.

This was my mission last year. We found one incredible maze at Kettle Farms in Hoosick Falls - The website looks really kid-friendly, but we went on a rainy Fall day and there were no kids, barely anyone at all and certainly no line. The corn was tall and the maze was challenging. Much more complex than most of the other mazes, so it's worth the trip for us each year. Here are some shots from our ridiculous trip:

Really, thats it? sigh AOA readers

Ellms Family Farms ... massive corn maze. 1-2 hour completion *with* guides. Have fun! :)

The Corn Maze at Kettle Farms is the Largest on the East Coast, 22-Acres! This year's theme is amusement park rides. Other activities include a corn cannon, slingshots, hay maze, corn pit, corn teepee, etc.

Washington Avenue definitely needs more than one lane in each direction, but that doesn't mean it can't be redesigned. They can reduce the size of the lanes, add a median, and add a protected bike lane where the shoulder of the road now lies. I agree, however, that the entire Harriman loop would have to be redesigned and that includes those over-passes, so this would be an extremely expensive undertaking if they want to do it right. But there could be significant development on the land that is now wasted by asphalt that could offset that cost and bulk up the tax base for the city.
