Guided Night Hikes
When the sun takes its daily dive below the horizon and delivers nighttime to your doorstep, there’s no rule saying you have to stay in for the evening. If you’re looking to extend your daily window of time for getting outdoors, here’s some inspiration and information to get you started on your after-dark adventures: Find out what's awake while you're asleep! We'll experience the wildlife preserve at night, how to build a fire from scratch and a shelter to keep warm, learn to navigate by the stars, seek out scorpions and other things that "glow" in the dark. Recommended for 8yrs old and up.
Why hike at night? A different perspective of the scenery, relief from summertime heat and a deep connection with the outdoors are three good reasons to hit the trail when it's dark. a few reasons:
It’s beautiful: Gazing up at the Milky Way galaxy, watching a meteor streak across the sky or finding your way by the light of a full moon can be transformative experiences, especially if you’re used to city living.
Its a great connection with the environment: By hiking at night you’re deliberately reducing your ability to use your vision to navigate. This gets you to focus on your other senses, especially your hearing, which can put you more in tune with the environment around you, especially wildlife.
