Holiday Trail of Lights brings the Beauty of Holiday Season into Nature

Hundreds of families will bundle up and experience the annual Holiday Trail of Lights. Designed to enhance, not overpower, the beautiful nature sanctuary, the warm ambiance of this half-mile walking trail makes this event the most unique holiday light display in North Texas.

Children and the young at heart will enjoy the opportunity to have a professional photo taken with Father Christmas and Mother Nature in a festive setting. Hot beverages and treats will be available for purchase. Family-friendly entertainment will complement the holiday atmosphere. Local musicians will delight audiences with live holiday music in the Heard outdoor amphitheater. Strolling carolers will sing for guests as they walk through the museum and grounds.
