Discover the magic of a moonlight hike, when even the most familiar trails reveal sights and sounds they only share with the quiet night. Wind along a rocky trail just outside the city by headlamp, and take in the sights and sounds of this desert landscape at night. This hike is perfect for anyone - no prior experience needed - as you'll need to feel comfortable walking on uneven terrain for about 2 miles. You bring the hiking boots, we'll bring the headlamps.

  • Explore the edge of a wilderness area by the light of the moon
  • No prior hiking experience required
