We went to enjoy the colors of fall. We spent 3+ hrs exploring and taking pictures. We had to leave to meet friends, yet enjoyed every minute we were there. We look forward to going back in the Spring.

This a beautiful place to visit. We did it at the end of the summer. I will definitely return in the spring and hopefully in the fall to see what other colors nature will bring to this wonderland.

There are miles of trails and most are lit up from what I remember. One can also drive through. Due to the super cold temps, driving might be better. Happy Holidays!

There is a 3 mile loop but we took it on a tram ride. A lot of the displays are very close to the main building which wouldn't be much of a walk.
