Tips for Your Visit


 Purchase admission tickets and parking ahead of time, advanced purchase is required for Lightscape!

✓ If your group is arriving in separate cars, drive in together (caravan style) and let the parking attendants know that you are doing so in order to park in the same lot and begin at the same trail entrance.

✓ Wear comfortable shoes – the outdoor walking trail is 1-mile long on paved and dirt paths and occasionally hilly.

✓ Dress for the weather as this is an outdoor event and will be held rain or shine.
