A burner on the grill can heat water piping hot for cider and hot chocolate. Most groups bring food such as hotdog materials, smors, etc., but you are welcome to bring anything you'd like.
● Lots of soft ambient Treetop Lighting covering 2-3 acres of the grounds including the parking area, kids playground and also an accent Red Rope Light lining the fence in the distant field. The lighting of the pavilion and bench area, lit fence along the peninsula on the pond and the petting zoo area add to the charm of the fire pit. Besides our lit lattice fence, another focal point is a lit footbridge over the pond area beyond the fire pit.

ON INITIAL VISITS FOR PROSPECTIVE EVENTS OR FOLLOW-UP VISITS FOR SCHEDULED EVENTS Whether our Firey Trails gate happens to be open or closed, any initial look-over of the grounds and all follow-up visits for whatever reason, must be set up in advance where someone can meet with you. Ray Firey and Diana Firey are both here on Saturdays and this is a convenient day to meet with us, but appointments may also be set up for through the week (but this is usually not as convenient for us). With another business and lots to do around our grounds, impromptu visits are not welcome nor are we set up for that. Sometimes are gate is closed but sometimes it is open since the residence on the grounds is occupied. Firey Trails is only considered to be OPEN while an event is going on and the grounds are private property otherwise and are not open to the public or for any unannounced visits. All Firey Trails visits must be arranged in advance - for one(s) who may schedule or ones who have already scheduled. We've had an unannounced impromptu follow-up visit before and then were criticized afterwards because neither of us could be found to meet with the unannounced visitors who did not take the effort or time to set up a time for us to meet with them. We invite people to call or email us to set up a time to look us over and have done this many times. We just request that the right channels be taken in doing this. Thank you.
NOTE: Cell phone coverage at Firey Trails is spotty at best. US Cellular seems to work the best. Also, there is no Wi-Fi internet.
