Discover the magic of a starlit hike, when even the most familiar trails reveal sights and sounds they only share with the cool, quiet night. As we travel along this mellow hike, we'll stop for a guided exploration of the constellations above. This hike is perfect for star lovers with a little bit of hiking experience, as you'll need to feel comfortable walking on uneven terrain after dark. You bring the hiking boots, we'll bring the headlamps.
