Relax and enjoy a self-guided candlelit journey through the deep
woods of Newton Hills. ADVISORY: The walk is
approximately 2.2 miles in length traveling on paved roads
with vertical declines and inclines so please be prepared.
The trail will be solely lit up by candles and carved pumpkins.
We ask you not use your flashlight unless absolutely necessary
and keep your voices to a minimum. Along the way you will
encounter colorful characters from the past, a few musical
surprises and telescopes to see the evening sky.
Kids of all ages are encouraged to bring carved pumpkins to be
placed along the CandleLight Walk. Keep an eye out for your
pumpkin or the others that park staff carved earlier in the day.
We hope you have a good eye as some may be difficult to find!
If you need assistance during the walk, park employees will be
scattered along the trail tending to the candles. One hill along
the back stretch of the trail is rather steep. Park employees will
be nearby with a golf cart if you need help getting up the hill. If
needed, look for the golf cart dressed with glow sticks.
Take as long as you wish and enjoy the wonder of nature.
Enjoy your evening!
