North Georgia's #1 Haunted Trail celebrates 11 years in operation

Zombie Farms has helped Athens celebrate Halloween since 2012 and is looking forward to the 2023 season with great anticipation! ZF is a haunted walking trail through the woods with many sets and scenes to enjoy.  This annual fall event is a unique alternative to all the kiddie corn mazes and predictable haunted houses.  The trail is different every year, so no matter how many times you have visited before, you will enjoy all new scares and scenes!

Halloween Forest opens at 7:30pm.  Main trail begins at 8pm.   Gates close at 10:45, but we run the trail until all guests have gone through.  Please note that the Halloween Forest closes 30 minutes BEFORE the main trail, so please arrive by 10pm, if you wish to experience both events.

2023 Haunted Trail Theme

Eleven years ago, Zombie Farms began as a zombie preserve.   But it hasn't been smooth sailing!  We have battled government entities who sought to control us, witches who sought revenge, ghosts who are never at rest and a chaotic of mix other creatures who wished to inhabit our farm from vampires and werewolves to fiends, hoodlums and demons.  

Last year, The Clown Mother brought chaos and madness as she took over the Zombie Farms property.  Her goal was to create joy in a world full of desperation.  But her idea of joy was twisted from years of being under the thumb of the Shadow Collector.  She reaches for you in your dreams.  We had to work together to fight off her JOYFUL MADNESS and keep it from infecting everyone.  

So what darkness will 2023 bring?  We can't tell you everything yet, but it is an ANCIENT evil and it also involves true love surviving at all costs.  Stay tuned and don't miss it out on the best Hallloween fun in Athens Georgia!
