U Pick Pumpkins Patches and Corn Mazes at the Best Places Near Lansing


Pumpkin U Pick and Maze Running Through Greater Lansing

Pumpkin picking is a right of passage into the Fall season in Michigan. It’s our way of telling ourselves, “It’s ok, the weather getting colder is fun, remember?”

True confession: I get a little blue each September when the warm weather starts to taper. The saving grace is that it’s pumpkin carving and eating season – keeping the good times a’rolling.


Double bonus: there are lots of places to U Pick pumpkins all around town. Plus, some spots have corn mazes to run through!

Best Maze

Best Maze
3803 Noble Rd,
Williamston, MI 48895

BestMaze is celebrating their 20th anniversary and opening their maze Sept 26.  Their corn maze paths are cut wider than usual this year with five separate sections totaling a three-mile maze.  As a result, these paths will be wheel chair friendly.

BestMaze has an extensive underground drainage system that keeps trails from becoming muddy even after a heavy rain. There are also towers from where lost maze trekkers can find assistance.

And for those craving a little creep, try out their famous Trail of Terror, accessible from the same location.

It has the name, Best Maze, for a reason and is known all over Michigan as that place to go this season and it’s right here in the Lansing area!
