A drive-thru animation display of lights that occurs during the holidays each year at The Shepherd of the Hills Homestead, the Trail of Lights offers a stunning Christmas show for the whole family. Guests can explore the 160-acre homestead to find it transformed into a winter wonderland, with illuminated life-size characters, festive music and a ride on the glass elevators of Inspiration Tower.

The show was entertaining . The seats were comfortable . However if you are at all disabled , this is now for you, from the first row to bathrooms/food there are 45 steps. When we booked are tickets are seats were in the 9th row , my husband has a broken leg and uses a walker, we had no idea about the stairs and did mention this to the ticket agent. When arriving for the show all the handicap parking was taken and they parked us by the tunnel and took us by tram to the ticket agent. However when we left they would not take us to our car they expected my husband to walk from the tunnel to our car approx 200 feet on gravel payment. I spoke with a lady when picking up our tickets and she directed me to the mgr. and he made arrangements for us to sit in VIP seating and Clifford a tram driver to take us to our seats without any stairs and take us back to our car when the show was over . They were most accommodating . They was a tram driver Brian that was not going to do anything to help us, Even after the mgr made other arrangements. There are caring people in this world.
This show has everything you need. If you want to hear good bluegrass music they have the best band. If you want a fight and see a real cabin burn. Or even a love story then this is the show for you. There is a surprise around every corner. The cast does a fantastic job. Keep up the good work and glad you are back the the 2016 season.
So thanks to Shepherd of the Hill my kids got to enjoy a tour of Big Matt's homestead. If you haven't read the 3rd most read book in world history, it's a must! Then, boom off to the Vigilante Zip line for a 1/2 mile drop. What a great day, it is worth the visit...rock it Missy A, you represent the property very well.
It's a very good show to attend however the one thing to take into consideration is the weather being you are outdoors. It was hot and humid when we attended the show so everyone was uncomfortable. The cast, horses and staff were great and they throw some comedy in there too.
