Summit Open for Viewing Lights
The Summit Road at Scotts Bluff National Monument will be open free of charge, weather permitting, from 4:30 p.m. until 9:00 p.m., beginning on Friday, December 21, through Sunday, December 23, 2012, so visitors may view the holiday lights of the surrounding area. Entrance fees will not be charged during these hours. The summit gates will be locked at 9:00 p.m. each evening, and all vehicles must be down from the summit by that time.
