Mid Michigan Community College’s Harrison campus offers 3 miles of walking and 15 miles of mountain biking trails, which are always open to the public. Every year, the college hosts races on them, and runners and bikers wind through acres of woods and clearings.

But, in October, these trails will offer community members something very different—because on six different evenings, MMCC’s trails will be haunted.

This is the fourth year that MMCC’s Chapter of the Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society will host the Deadwood Grove Haunted Trails. Trails will be open October 16, 17, 23, 24, 30, and 31 from 7-10PM.

The cost to attend is $7/person or $5 for children 12 and under. Proceeds from this student-run event will be used to support MMCC’s Honor Society programming and general student activities at the college.

Sarah Kohler, MMCC’s Phi Theta Kappa president, feels like these events represent a continued commitment by MMCC to provide community-oriented activities for the whole family:

“Deadwood Grove is a spooky event orchestrated by more than 40 student volunteers who help to make the haunted trail safe for a freakishly fun night,” says Kohler. “It's great to see community members come out and enjoy something that we plan for several months in advance, and we hope this year is bigger than ever.”
