We Have Arrived

Since 2000, the Night Walk on the Panhandle Trail has been a Halloween tradition in Collier Township. The Rennerdale Youth Group will carve more than 100 pumpkins donated by Lane Construction. Collier Girl Scouts and other volunteers will fill 500 treat bags, and carved jack o’ lanterns set up along a half-mile stretch of the Trail from the bridge near the Walkers Mill trailhead to the Sunnyside entrance. Bonfires light the night and hot chocolate and sweet cider are distributed by Collier Friends of the Panhandle Trail. A costumed volunteer will delight the kids with stories near the Quarry bonfire.  There are Treat Bags for children aged 11 and under at the Quarry.

The event is free but donations are welcome! Children, adults and volunteers are encouraged to wear costumes or weird hats.

    Erica, some pumpkins may still be on display–volunteers take ones they’d like to keep and all the candles are removed. Public works removes the rest during the week.

    Nicholas, the event went as planned–sorry we couldn’t let you know in time. Most of us are still setting up and there’s not always a reliable connection there for messages.

    Are the pumpkins still on display today? It was quite raining last night so we didn’t make it out but would love to see all the hard work the kids did in creating jack o lanterns for the events.

    I was wondering if due to the rain if the event is still going to continue to go on for October 24, 2015

    Sure! Visit our Maps page: There are Google maps to each of the entrances so you can expand the view as far as you need to. We are very close to both I79 and I376, and 22/30 reaches both roads since you are coming from Ohio. Thanks for visiting!

    Is there any way I can get directions on how to get there? My family and I would like to join in on the walk but do not know how to get to the trail. If you could please send me directions on how to get there it would be very much appreciated. We will be coming from Toronto, OH. Thanks in advance!
