I've seen sets with fire tacks used to set up the trail and to note the location of the boxes.

I REALLY enjoyed LCABs set at SOHT the last time we were there.....She set out the boxes with small firefly lights to be looked for to find the boxes.

What about maybe using Solar Lights?

Nope! I am saving it for when we convince Open Space to host L&B again. Mwahahaha! JK.

There are different ideas in night boxing. One fun one is to make the hunt scary. Don't follow a trail but rather bushwhack through the woods from start to finish. Plant some rubber snakes, rats and spiders along the route, including hanging from branches. Maybe have motion detectors that start things making noise.
Install a burglar alarm in the lid of the box, preferably one that sounds like a rattlesnake.

Nope, I would have a heart attack! One box I will never go after!

Hidden in an open field in pouches with reflective tape, everyone uses flashlights. Stagger them out in groups of 4 onto the field with a very a visual map of clues. This is if you're looking for inexpensive and easy way of doing it.

Using reflective tape or paint, then hide them in trees as well as on the ground.

We've used glow sticks in peanut butter jars with the stamps.
