My mom and I drove over to Field of the Woods from Bryson City. We had no problem finding it using my GPS. It was a neat place to visit with some really nice displays. There was no one working the day we visitied, but everything is open to the public so we just wandered around by ourselves. You can walk all the way to the top of the displays or drive if you prefer. We did some of both. It did seem like some of the areas could use some repair work, but we enjoyed our visit.

There is no fee, but they do have a donation box. There was a restaurant that was not open when we were there. There are also picnic tables.

Where have you ever seen the 10 commandments written on a hill? It's unusual, the area is pretty and it's a nice destination for a little bit of exercise!

Was totally impressed with how "kept" the place is. The bathrooms were very clean, but it was a Monday, but was already cleaned by lunch time from the weekend visitors! Lots of grass and weed-eating to be done and they must do it in a timely manner, because it was well-groomed today.

We took a picnic lunch and enjoyed it across from "Golgotha". After feeling physically full, we embarked on an adventure to become spiritually full. And we succeeded! This place is awesome and God has truly blessed it. The view from the top of the Bible (make sure you take the stairs that are behind the Bible) makes you want to thank God for his wondrous works. The "All Nations Cross" is found by driving up the paved road behind the Ten Commandments. The road dead ends there. We weren't sure at first if the road went up one side and down the other, but it does not. So make sure you go all the way to the end. The walk up is easy on a sidewalk to the flags. There is an "Old Timers Trail" if you'd like to do a little hiking up there. And of course standing at the Prayer Altar made us feel so "filled with the Holy Spirit" even though we were almost out of breath climbing the steps to get there. But stopping along the way to read the monuments and explanations allowed us to catch our breath on the way up. Would love to come back and share this experience with our children and grandchildren. A "must see" if you're in the area.

This being my second time visiting here. It is a serene place where one can pray and strengthen your personal relationship with Jesus Christ. A must see for all Bible believing Christians. Fields of the Wood Bible Park! Open to the Public, free of charge. Self guide tour but brochures are in the gift shop. The Fields of Wood is not a religious park, but it is a Bible-based Christian park. It is truly an amazing visual display of the Holy Scripture.
