Map out Trick-or-Treating routes now for a safe Halloween!

MESA COUNTY, Colo -- With just a few days left until Halloween, it's the perfect time to plan where to trick-or-treat!

Plan out the most convenient and safe route now, so you and your family can just enjoy the frights of All Hallows' Eve.

Start with an area you are familiar with and create a route. Incorporate crosswalks when you need to cross the street and try to avoid major intersections if possible.

Stay in well lit areas and out of the streets, then you can enjoy all those sweet treats!

The neighborhood social media network Nextdoor can also help. It's Treat Map tool gives you the inside scoop on who will be giving out candy Halloween night!

Nextdoor members participating in trick-or-treating this year can put a candy corn icon on their house under the neighborhood map section.

When you go to plan your route, you can see exactly who in your neighborhood is handing out candy!

Don't forget to keep an eye out for Mesa County Sheriff patrol cars Halloween night!
