Walk along with the action of your favorite literary tales performed live among 1,700 acres of trees and beautiful landscapes. All Theatre-Hikes® are approximately two hours in length and will not exceed 2 miles in hiking distance.
For a more enjoyable hike, we recommend you bring a portable chair or blanket, a water bottle, sunscreen, and/or insect repellant.

Dates: October 8 (Sorry, SOLD OUT!), 14, 15, 21, 22, 28, 29
Celebrate the season with Nightfall With Edgar Allan Poe, the four tales that Poe himself thought were his most spooky; The Raven, The Fall of the House of Usher, The Pit and the Pendulum, and The Tell-Tale Heart. Edgar Allan Poe is the lead character through each tale, sometimes observing, but mostly experiencing these horrors along with you, our audience.
*Fall weekends are popular days for visitation. Please allow up to 45 minutes to park and get to where the hike commences (Thornhill Shelter, Parking Lot 21).
Each month Theatre-Hikes® offers a Low Impact Hike. Low Impact hikes are designed for guests with lower mobility; the hike covers a much shorter distance, and tries to stay near paved paths wherever possible. This year's remaining date is October 15.
Each month The Morton Arboretum and Theatre-Hikes® will feature an American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation performance. This year's remainingdate is October 21.
