What to Expect
We've done our best to capture the experience of being at the in-person Candlelight Walk, which has been held at Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park for the last 30 years. We'll walk you down some of the Revelation and Prairie Creek trails lit with LED powered Luminaries. In the fireside center, you'll watch as storytellers, Skip Lowrey, Ali Freedlund and Paul Woodland share tales of giving, handing down traditions and of the redwood forest. We'll have some music. You'll meet some of the people who work here in our redwood parks and hear their memories and why they love this place. The only thing you will be missing is hot cider and a cookie around the Visitor Center's massive stone fireplace! But we'll have it lit for you, so at least you can enjoy the view of the fire.
