Discover the magic of a starlit hike, when even the most familiar trails reveal sights and sounds they only share with the quiet night. We'll pause along the way for a laser guided tour of the night sky, pointing out constellations and celestial bodies that glow over the desert landscape after dark. This hike is perfect for night sky lovers with or without prior hiking experience, though you'll need to feel comfortable walking on uneven terrain for about 3 miles. You bring the hiking boots, we'll bring the headlamps.

  • Explore the desert night sky
  • Take a walk through one of our favorite places
