If I was to use these lights for a trail to my cabin, how far apart and how high should I mount these?

Answer:I purchased these lights for my stairs from my deck down to the ground. They do not throw much light, but certainly would show a pathway. I placed them about 6 feet apart, about 12 feet total.

Answer:These lights are very dim. Not something you would use for path lighting in any way, shape, or form!

Answer:I would not use this fixture to light a trail. The light is very dim. I purchased mine to illuminate steps on my deck. I bought 6 lights for 6 steps, and they are not illuminated enough to be safe. They are called "Deck Lights," they hang on the posts and basically define the edges of the deck. I am trying to figure out how to make mine brighter. I like the design, but the illumination is inadequate.

Answer:These are great lights. If you mount them on posts, anywhere from 16" to 2 feet off the ground should provide adequate pathway lighting. We are using them near stairs off of a deck, so I don't really know how far between them you could go., but I would imagine 5' or 6' apart would work if the terrain was not very irregular.

Answer:They aren't going to "light" the trail but they will "mark" the edges...They are not very bright. I just use them as a "guide" for the steps but it doesn't actually light up the steps.

Answer:We are pretty happy with these lights. We use them for our deck stair railing and they glow nicely.
We mounted these lights 3" from the bottom of the light to the top each step and the lights are mounted 36" from each other.
