The Trail of Lights is a drive-thru animation display that will carry you into the very heart of Christmas. The Trail winds its way through the historic 160-acre homestead, and will take you down the famous "Trail that Nobody Knows How Old" into a holiday wonderland.
You'll travel through a variety of different lands, each with their own theme, from fantasy to religious to patriotic. Life-size (and some larger than life) three-dimensional characters have their own housing so you can "peek" in on the fun happening inside. Festive holiday music is themed to each scene, and visitors are sure to find themselves singing along.
The Trail also includes millions of
multi-colored Christmas lights. Every building on park is completely illuminated, and there are hundreds of lighted displays as well as the animated scenes.
As the grand finale to the journey, visitors are invited to stop by Inspiration Tower where they can ride glass elevators up 230’ for a Santa’s eye view of the lights from above.
The Trail of Lights is located on the Shepherd of the Hills Historic Homestead on Highway 76, 2 miles west of the RFD TV Theater.
