MARQUETTE – Northern Michigan University students are familiar with the wildcat logo, but never in the form of a maze. They will have a chance to navigate their way out of one at NMU Day at the Hayes Corn Maze in Rock on Saturday, Sept. 24.

The maze has been cut to resemble the NMU wildcat in celebration of its 10th anniversary. General admission is $7.50 in the month of September and $8 in October. NMU students receive a $1 discount by showing their student IDs for the duration of the maze and will be given an additional $1 off on NMU Day if they are wearing Northern apparel or school colors.

The maze is located approximately 55 miles south of Marquette on M-553 and  M-35. The grounds are open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturdays and noon to 6 p.m. Sundays, Sept. 17-Oct. 30.

            Each year the maze draws visitors from an estimated 200 mile radius, according to owners David and Lenore Hayes. The farm also features a smaller hay barrel maze, pumpkin patch with pumpkins available for purchase, tractor rides, pumpkin sling and concession stand.
