It’s almost time for fun fall festivities, and you know what that means… corn maze time! Not only is romping about in a corn maze a quintessentially must-do New England bucket list activity, but it’s hard to find a better “Hello Fall!” excursion than getting lost in a corn maze (although pumpkin and apple-picking are right up there, too) as the sun starts to set and the crisp autumn breeze whips through the stalks.
Whether your favorite corn maze is spooky, sweet, or full of riddles, you’ll find it here in this list of the 10 best corn mazes in New Hampshire!
Sherman Farm in Conway, NH
Beautiful Sherman Farm is home to a 12-acre corn maze that has been lauded as one of the best corn mazes in NH, winning Best Corn Maze in New Hampshire for 2014, 2015, 2017, and 2018; the corn maze opens for fall fun, weekends only September-October.
Sherman Farm is a family favorite for not only just their fun-to-find-your-way-out-of corn maze, but also for their other great family activities, like an inflatable pumpkin pad for jumping, their kiddie playground, fun hands-on games, and in addition to all their local farm market goodies, they are also home to the Barnyard Scoop, an ice cream shop that features farm-fresh milk in their creamy creations.
Oh, you can even feed and pet the cute goats while you’re there, too, or just venture on out to check out all the awesome things to do in North Conway!
Riverview Farm in Plainfield, NH

2020’s theme was Monsters of New England, and that’s the kind of creative fun you can expect from Riverview Farm; if it’s more spooky fun you’re after, then plan your visit for the Friday and Saturday before Halloween to experience the haunted corn maze. With hayrides, antique tractor rides, and all the amazing farm-fresh goodies found in their Barn Store, there’s more than just corn maze fun at Riverview Farm.
Washburn’s Windy Hill Orchard in Greenville, NH

In addition to the pumpkins you’ll also find here, don’t forget to visit the gift shop for handcrafted goods and delicious treats; Washburn’s Windy Hill Orchard is known for their scrumptious apple cider donuts and their frozen apple cider slushies, so save a little room for the sweet stuff, too!

Beautifully laid out, Moulton Farm has a great selection of fresh-picked produce available, and lots of remarkable offerings available via their farm kitchen and bakery, too, so after you pick your own pumpkins, cut your own flowers, and make your way through the clever and oftentimes challenging corn maze, you can grab something to eat. Maybe take a few of the famous apple-cider donuts from Cider Bellies for the road!
Elwood Orchards in Londonderry, NH
Picturesque views everywhere you look, Elwood Orchards is just as gorgeous as their corn maze is challenging… and that’s a lot!

If you’re looking to up the ante a bit, consider going to the Night Maze, where finding your way out of this 14-acre behemoth gets even trickier under the New Hampshire moonlight. Grab some goodies from the farm stand to take with you into the maze, you might be there for a while!
Scamman Farm in Stratham, NH

For corn mazers under 5, Scamman Farm also has a mini hay maze and play area. Don’t leave the farm without feeding the goats and pigs and swinging by the Pumpkin Shack for some of their farm-fresh produce and other treats!
Collins Farm in Bath, NH
Collins Farm doesn’t just cut a few lines in their corn for people to traipse through, no, Collins Farm goes all out to make the corn maze experience as engaging and interesting as possible.
