Trail & Path Info

The trails are cut directly into the sunflower field. Though this photo was taken in their Augusta location in 2013, the trails will look the same in 2015 :)

Things to See & Do

Within the maze you will find 3+ miles of trails. There is a larger hill on the northern section, allowing you to view the entire field, with the sunflowers looking up happily at you :)

Trip Ideas

The maze is open while the sunflowers are in bloom. This is usually from late August until early October. Sunflowers do not bloom the entire 4-8 weeks continuously, but the maze has planted different batches to bloom at different times over their short season. Even with the staggered planting, the best time to visit may be early in their season. But you will not be let down anytime that you visit.

After you visit to the maze, visit Roseline's Farm & Bakery for the best Farm Fresh Goodies you can get!

Special / Seasonal Events

Each year, the maze takes on a new shape, layout, and meaning! This is rather special :)

While visiting the 2013 maze, we captured the entire maze on our GPS and have shared the following screenshot:

Editor's Note....

On August 31, 2013, the owner of the Sussex County Sunflower Maze invited us up to cover their great event. This gave us a great opportunity to learn a bit about the farm, the maze, the process in creating the maze, and everything else that goes into it. It was a great day.
