Sinister Forrest

Annually in October

Hidden up on a hill, overlooking Clear Lake in Waseca, lies Maplewood Forest. The remnants of a time forgotten, it’s deteriorated old buildings, hold a dark history. Are you brave enough to walk the archaic paths through the dark forest, as you try to reach the end without waking the evil that lives within the shadows of the trees?

The great outdoors awaits you.
