Top of the Rock has been transformed for the Christmas season with the Lost Canyon Christmas outdoor nature trail. The 2.5-mile trail features multiple scenes honoring Native Americans in an Ozarks winter wonderland, illuminated by thousands of Christmas lights nestled in the trees. As visitors travel along the paved golf cart path, they can enjoy hot chocolate and breathtaking views of handcrafted bridges, cascading waterfalls, cliffs, and holiday scenes.
"Connection was the primary driving concept behind the Lost Canyon Christmas experience," said Melody Matheny, the attraction designer. "Our goal was to allow guests to be inspired and come away with a deeper understanding of the natural world around them, what makes this place so special, and how they are directly connected to it."
"There is so much to celebrate this time of year," said John Mikolajczyk, director of operations for the Johnny Morris Foundation. “Lost Canyon Christmas features seasonal holiday traditions, along with honoring the great outdoors with special sculptures that celebrate animals, water, the earth and how we are all connected. Guests experience the cave trail in an all new, never before way that we hope will become a new family tradition during the holidays here in the Ozarks.”
