About The Trail

The Mountain Christmas Trail of Lights is a gift from our community to you! From the community’s trail of lights and displays to a month of holiday events for you and your family…we invite you to celebrate the holidays with us in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. Learn more on our About The Trail Page.

2020 presents many challenges for events, however our communities are working together to provide many holiday activities for you and your family to take part in. Stay tuned and check back often for updates.
