For the past 25 years, we have reinvented ourselves each year to create a new and terrifying experience. There is so much going on that you’re sure to soil yourself! Markoffs Haunted Forest is Maryland’s original greatest Halloween event, and you will be amazed by our haunts, our extreme events, and huge bonfires! Get Ready, Get Psyched!

Trail 1:
This is our "original" trail at Markoff’s. While the scenes get changed up, there are those huge sets that will blow your mind and senses. The terrain is tough, taking you both above and under ground - with terror everywhere - very wooded, heavily shadowed, and your deepest and darkest primal fears lurking where you least suspect them. The terror it builds with heavy wooded terrain to break up each scene.
?
Trail 2:
Built slightly different to offer another type of terror, these scenes are closer together. Startles and big scenes with images designed to have you jump out of your shoes. The same number of scenes as the Original and sets that will leave you panting to catch your breath. If there is any haunt in the area to give our Original a run for it's money... it is definitly "Trail Who, Trail Two!"
?
The Town:
An entire town located on the opposite side of our farm, your excursion starts and ends with a shuttle that drops you off into an old town filled with the worst that our imagination can throw at you. Churches, mineshaft, butcher shops, jails, saloons, and cat houses, this town is entirely too big to fit in our forest! All patrons must be in the town by 11pm. Email Haunt Owner

From Germantown, Rockville or DC: We suggest using Whites Ferry Road through the town of Poolesville. When coming from Frederick, please use 28S to 109S into the town of Poolesville, and then go up Whites Ferry Road (107N). ? From Virginia: You have many options. If you choose to use the Ferry that crosses the Potomac River connecting Leesburg with Poolesville (White’s Ferry), be aware of times and alternate routes if necessary using either the bridge at 495 or the bridge at Point of Rocks. It is important to note that there is a fee associated with taking the Ferry across the Potomac River. The White’s Ferry closes at 12am on nights the Haunted Forest is open.

  • Love Markoff's! Best in the DC area!

    Huge fan of all things scary, and this is my favorite October tradition. Have been every year for the past 7 years and it just keeps getting better.

  • Best haunted attraction

    Not only does this attraction have a haunted trail through the woods it has many other features. When you first walk in you enter into the front circle where they have 4 huge bonfires, free games, farm fresh food, rope activities like a zip line, a giant swing, and the death jump. They also have a haunted hayride and non haunted hayride and a haunted maze. So while you are waiting to enter into one of the two trails in the woods you have stuff to do. Once your number is called you pick which trail to go down. The best thing about Markoffs is that they don't go on blood and guts. They go with natural fears. And use the wood for their advantage. The thing that makes Markoffs great is that it's a fundraiser. Majority of the money goes back to the community and charities. The rest goes into the camp to have scholarships for kids who can't afford to attend summer camp. It also helps keep the camp open year round for schools to attend and for team building activities. I highly highly highly recommend this to any age.

  • Best haunted attraction in Maryland!

    Great Make up artists to make the scares for real. The trails are made up with 13 different scenes. You have a choice to do upto 3 trails as well. 3rd trail is a hayride built in with a haunted trail on the other side of the farm. During the main circle while waiting for your number to be called your able to some fun camp things that you would most likely remember in your childhood but all with the feel of spooks. I would say this would be the best in Montgomery county.

  • The Best Around

    I went three times this year and had a blast every time! The actors were great! From those hiding in the forest, the town, and the hallow to the greeters telling you the rules. Everyone was amazing! Also, won a zip line pass and it was amazing to zip in the dark!!
