LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE, Calif. (KABC) -- Looking for a fun fall activity this Halloween season? Descanso Gardens has you covered.

Throughout the most popular sections of Descanso Gardens, there will be a twisting hay maze, a house made entirely out of real pumpkins and a pumpkin arch.

The Haunted Hayride, usually held at Griffith Park, has been re-imagined into a live drive-up experience and this year it'll be held in San Dimas.


The path through the forest will also have surprises like scarecrows with pumpkin heads and arms of branches that pop out as you pass by.

"This has been a wild year," said Juliann Rooke, executive director, Descanso Gardens, "so we wanted to provide a fall experience that would not only celebrate the season, but provide families with a way to enjoy Halloween safely and outside, in nature."

While exploring the Gardens, guests can stop by the Kitchen at Descanso, where they can get fall-inspired drinks, soups and snacks like caramel corn and churros.
