Spread throughout Denver Botanic Gardens Chatfield Farms, Trail of Lights offers visitors a choice of paths; a shorter route takes visitors directly through the children’s play area, while an extended path allows visitors to explore the outside area of the Green Farm Barn and silo before continuing through the children’s area and 1880s homestead.
Fun features this year:
- Synchronized music in children’s play area
- Three-sided light tunnel
- Illuminated antique and model tractors on display
Hot beverages, nuts and kettle corn are available for purchase with cash or credit card.
