UPDATE: Unfortunately, this even has been canceled:
“At this time, trail conditions park-wide have deteriorated further after the precipitation received Monday and Tuesday this week. Currently, all trails are rated as: icy to dangerously icy in most places, and are not safe for use for the Trails By Candlelight event. In addition to unsafe event trail conditions, local weather predictions anticipate rain all day and into the evening on Saturday, February 11, which will further deteriorate trail conditions and disintegrate and extinguish luminaries.
