McCloud Prairie Maze

September 2 through October 31, 2017

This year’s Prairie Maze at McCloud Nature Park is a bird-brained scheme that is sure to challenge your wayfinding skills. Wading through our tallgrass prairie, the long-legged heron guarantees a half-mile hike — assuming you take only the correct route through its feathers.

Don’t just wing it — maps to the maze are available in the kiosk outside the Nature Center, as well as in the kiosk at the entrance to the maze.

Beak careful and dress for the weather, wear comfortable closed-toed shoes, and bring some water.

Make sure you’re heron time because this bird flies away at dusk on October 31!


The McCloud Prairie Maze is within McCloud Nature Park, located at 8518 Hughes Road, North Salem, Ind.


The McCloud Prairie Maze is open daily from dawn to dusk. It opens to the public on September 2, 2017 through October 31, 2017.
