A previous version of the Gearhard’s corn maze showed the original (yellow) boundaries of the farm alongside the current (red) boundaries.

You don’t need to wander far to get lost in Murrysville. In fact, you only need to journey as far as Gearhard Farms on Saltsburg Road.

The 250-year-old farm, which is older than America itself, is also celebrating two decades of its corn maze, which will be open through October. Each year it boasts a different design, and participants are always asked to try and map it out.

We gave the maze a go, but as you’ll see from the video, we just ended up sweaty and lost!

The maze is open from 5-9 p.m. on Fridays, noon to 9 p.m. Saturdays and noon to 7 p.m. Sundays. The cost is $7 per person. Hayrides are also offered on select days.

The store also hosts a Kids Club craft program, with two sessions between 10 a.m. and noon for ages 3 and older.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
