Full Moon Hike

February 16 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

This moon is deemed the “snow moon” because February is usually the coldest, snowiest month in the U.S. Though Bay Area residents might have to head to Tahoe to actually see some snow this month, you can join us on a journey to watch the snow-white moon ascend into the night sky.

Naturalist Harold Hirsch will guide us on an invigorating hike to a breathtaking vista point where we will watch the radiant full moon rise over the East Bay hills and illuminate San Francisco Bay. Suitable for kids ages 10 and up.


Date: Wednesday, February 16

Time:  5 p.m. – 7 p.m.

Location: Meeting location details emailed to you upon reservation. 

Difficulty: Moderately strenuous, 4 miles.

What to bring: Warm clothing, water, flashlight. Be sure to wear appropriate hiking shoes. 

Note: This hike will begin at 5 p.m. sharp, so don’t be late or you’ll miss the fun!




Fee: $5 non-members; FOCC members free
