CORDELE, GA (WALB) -

The "Crisp Days of Fall" returned to Cordele last weekend, including the Dark Forest Haunted Trail.

While it does not look quite look as haunted during the day, Jeb Bell, park manager at Georgia Veterans State Park, said it definitely elicits some screams from visitors.

It takes between 15 and 20 minutes to walk through the exhibit that is complete with a dozen different scenes.

Due to the creepy content, the park recommends only people ages 13 and up go through the trail.

"We do have a chainsaw and that scares a lot of people," said Bell. "We have a butcher shop that is very scary and a maze that is very scary, a dark maze that you have to navigate with all kinds of stuff inside."

The trail, along with other events included in the "Crisp Days of Fall," is open the last two weekends in October.

The trail costs $8 per person ($5 with a student ID). For more info on the events, click here.
