Grant Allen/Adventure Tribune
Exploring Sauvie Island's corn maze is an Oregon fall tradition. Here are all the details you need to know before you explore the island.


PORTLAND - Sauvie Island is a farmer's paradise. With its regularly scheduled rainfall and its fertile soil, the island serves as the intersection the Willamette and Columbia Rivers. During the summer months, its farmers markets and harvest festivals bring flocks of tourists, as do its (in)famous beaches.

During the autumn months, Sauvie Island is home to the world's best pumpkin patch and corn maze, which draws thousands of Halloween-enthused locals each year.

With its close proximity to downtown Portland (13 miles) and its vast swaths of zig-zagged corn mazes (5 acres), Portlanders can't get enough of Sauvie Island in the fall.

"Every year, the cornfield is carved with a different pattern," says John Patrick Pullen of Travel Portland. "And the design is always sure to stump maze-goers while delighting fans of public art."

The corn maze on Sauvie Island begins in late September and runs into November. It's open daily from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., except on Fridays and Saturdays in October, when it stays open until 10:00 p.m. For more details, visit Sauvie Island's website.
